Today was a short run only 1.33 miles… but I got to run with Sophia today and we had a LOT of fun. at about 1 mile Sophia stopped in a big field and picked a big bouquet of wild flowers for Krisy. I am really happy with how excited Sophia is to run with me most days. I hope that it will turn into a life long love of exercise (Or college scholarship!). The time we spend together is priceless and I am sure I will look back on it fondly when she is a teenager and too cool for me. 🙂
My left leg was a bit tight today, so we took it really easy from and speed and distance perspective. Nutritionally, I had a GREAT day. I had one of my Banana Smoothies for breakfast:
Brad’s Banana Smoothie Recipe
- 1 cup Honey Greek Yogurt
- 1 Banana
- 15 Raw Almonds
- Pure Organic Vanilla Extract
- 1 Tsp Raw Organic Cacao Powder
- Blend smooth in the Vitamix with a few ice cubes.
Lunch was leftover stir fry I made Saturday night followed by a fresh Juice made with apple, pineapple, carrot, celery, and cucumber with a handful of peanuts and Macadamia nuts. Dinner was a Morningstar Prime Griller and some leftover mac n’ cheese. Finally, for dessert, I had a small glass of fat-free milk and a Kashi oatmeal raisin flax cookie. Over all a GREAT eating day! I feel fantastic 10 days into this, but I need to make sure I take it easy and not to push too hard. A simple injury could kill the dream of running every day for a year.
Anyways, here are the details of today’s run:
