Here's what I ate yesterday:
Breakfast: Oatmeal with cinnamon and honey
Lunch: Banana and leftovers from Monday night's dinner (so there was a little bit of cheese in it)
Pre-run Snack: Fruit salad from Wegmans (watermelon, honey dew melon, cantaloupe, grapes, pineapple and kiwi) and a brown rice cake with tahini butter
Dinner: (Thank you Jen for using this during an earlier CFC!) Brown rice pasta with broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, olive oil, onion powder and garlic powder (Mike had this too!)
Dessert: Green smoothie and a handful of almonds
The green smoothie was AMAZING! I do have to tweak it a little bit to try to figure out how to get rid of the leaf chunks, but other than that it was great! I found the recipe on Pinterest yesterday and knew I wanted to try it.
1 cup spinach
1 cup kale
1 1/2 cups orange juice (100% juice with no added sugar)
1 frozen banana
Really funny story about the banana, I put it in the freezer with the peel still ON! After our run I opened the freezer and when I couldn't get the peel off (duh) I put it back in the fridge to let it thaw a little bit. I peeled it later and put it back in the freezer. Lesson learned.
I'm looking forward to tonight's smoothie!
I also drank 60 ounces of water yesterday. Overall, I would say I had a 99% clean day!
Mike and I also did our first hill workout yesterday. We headed out to Cobbs Hill and decided to run up the monster hill there and then loop around the reservoir and back out to the main road, just to do it all over again!
You can even see the path on Google Maps!
Lap 1 (1.01 miles): 10:05 minutes (10:00 pace)
Lap 2 (1.01 miles): 10:10 minutes (10:03 pace)
Lap 3 (1.02 miles): 10:14 minutes (10:00 pace)
Mike actually ran ahead of me the majority of the time and he turned around after the third lap and met back up with me. We did a cool down of .21 miles (at 9:08 pace) and the entire run averaged at 9:56 pace. Not bad for such a monstrous hill!
Next time we want to do more laps, but the park closes at 6pm at this time of the year so we would have cut it close if we tried to do a fourth lap!
We saw so many runners out and about in the Cobbs Hill area, it was crazy!
Have you had a green smoothie before? Do you like hill workouts?
