It’s the second day of Spring and it snowed this morning. I am so over it. The pug is too. Doesn’t his expression just say it all. Over it.
Despite the snow, I still had a run planned with my friend Marisa. Pre-run eats: Sweet potato oatmeal with walnuts, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, and apple butter.
We waited until mid-morning to start our run with hopes that the snow would stop, but it never did.
I wasn’t pumped about running in the snow, but it was actually kind of pretty. And, surprisingly, this run was one of the warmest I’ve done during my marathon training. It was 34 degrees when we finished! Isn’t that nuts?
Run done! My legs felt tired after Thursday’s 20-miler, but Marisa and I were also running pretty fast (well, fast for me). Even with the snow/slushy conditions and 4 or 5 stops to wait for traffic lights, we still managed a 9:20 pace. That is speedy for me!
Post-run treats: Iced soy latte + blueberry muffin.
I enjoyed my treats while icing my knees and watching these two guys play with the vacuum. Quinn was quite intrigued by it!
Lunch was soup followed by a grilled cheese sandwich. Perfect snow day foods!
