A Good Run

21 Jul

This morning was the first good run I’ve had outside in awhile.  I got out by 10 a.m. and it felt great to run in sunny, low 70 degree weather.  It’s been a HOT summer and running in 80 or 90 degree weather has been tough.  I felt really good this morning and was able to bust out a run that looked like this:

  • Mile 1: 8:24 
  • Mile 2: 9:18
  • Mile 3: 9:12
  • Average Pace: 8:58 min/mile

I finished up with a 1 mile walk/jog to cool down and get myself back home.  Success!

A pretty view makes running a little easier!

After the run, I needed to shower, eat lunch and finish packing.  Thankfully, I was able to make this:

Turn into this:

I’d say that looks pretty good for a 9 day trip overseas!


Lunch was a little lame because it turned out there weren’t a ton of groceries in the house.  And by that I mean there was no deli turkey or Wegmans sliced wheat bread to make the same boring sandwich I eat nearly everyday.  Guilty.  I picked at some random food here and there, but eventually rolled with tuna fish on a wheat bagel thin.  I mixed the tuna with a Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese wedge, some salt, pepper and garlic.

Then I packed up some snacks for the trip:

Banana, PB, Kashi granola bars, apple, homemade mini muffins, almonds & a strawberry Chobani.

I doubt I’ll eat it all, but when I travel I get super hungry and I hate to get stuck with nothing to eat or have to settle for crappy airport food that I don’t want.  I’m going to be traveling for 12+ hours with a 5 hour time change, so I want to be prepared!

I’m going to try to blog from London, so see you from across the pond!

Questions for the Afternoon:

  • Do you pack healthy snacks with you when you’re traveling?
  • Have you ever been to London?  Tell me what places I need to see!
