Have you ever started a run or a planned workout and got so hungry that you had to cut it short? This was the case with me today. I was super excited to complete my first interval run in months. The problem is, I was too hungry in the morning so I ate my mid-morning/pre-workout snack too early. I felt fine before going to the gym, but a few minutes after I started running, my stomach was cramping up from hunger and I felt slightly dizzy. I was hoping it would go away (this does happen sometimes but I push through and forget about it) but no luck this time. I completed my 9×200 intervals as planned, but got off the treadmill the second I was done. I covered 3 miles (2.6 running) instead of 5. I’m going to the gym later tonight to do another 3 miles or so. I didn’t get that post-run glow I crave. I need it! 😉 On a positive note, although my stomach interfered with my plans, my intervals were ass-kicking. I alternated between 8.0 mph and 6.6 mph at 0.5 incline and dare I say, it was kind of easy. I hope I don’t jinx myself. Anyways, this is why I’d like to go back tonight. Adam is going so I’ll just join him. Maybe we can do 3 miles on the treadmill next to each other. 😀
2 slices of Vermont spelt bread with whipped cream cheese, grape tomatoes, lox and dill
Lox over or under the tomatoes?
After my prematurely finished run, I did enjoy a healthy and delicious lunch! Turkey/avocado/toms/laughing cow/mustard wrap with baby carrots and pear slices
MID-AFTERNOON SNACKS / PRE (SECOND) WORKOUT SNACK

Oh and before I forget, here is a box of the chocolate dipped bananas you were all drooling over 😉
All right, I’m ready for a sweat sesh!! Have a great weekend. I’ll be back tomorrow with the dinner recap/restaurant review (it should be a fun one!).
