Great Run & Paleo Day One.

4 mile run @ 9.12/mile
40 minutes cardio/strength circuit

This morning I felt completely unmotivated to do absolutely anything. I decided to just go out and get in a good, slow run. Slow run?? I didn't push, just ran conservatively the entire time and ended up running faster than I have been for the past several weeks! Yay!! Some runs just click, and this was a great one! I enjoyed every minute of it. Hello, running- yes- apparently I still do love you!!

When I left for my run, the sun was out and it was pretty nice out. At mile 3 it started to rain and I got SOAKED!! By the end of mile 4, the rain had turned into big snowflakes. Gotta love Kansas weather!
Are you running today? What weather are you running in?

Post-run I had me some corned beef & cabbage and a sweet potato.

I was surprised how easy it was to skip my oatmeal this morning. I was at a little bit of a loss what to have pre run- I normally have some pb or almond butter on an ezekial tortilla or english muffin. I had a handful of walnuts and raisins instead.

This afternoon I made a batch of Oatmeal Chocolate Cookie Bars for my brother's Bible Study. When I reached for the oats, I couldn't figure out what in the world happened to them- they were all gone and I NEVER run out of oats!! It took me a few minutes to remember that I hid them in my porch freezer. haha.

Talk about tempting!! They smell delicious. They better disappear tonight because they are NOT staying in my house!!


  1. No fair tempting me with goodies :)

    Sounds like a wonderful run you had. Spring is on the calendar...wonder if you guys will have spring weather there in Kansas?

  2. Yum, Yum, Yum! Every time I visit your blog I'm going to be pushed into wanting to do paleo! :)

  3. SPEEDY! Awesome job on that run! I love the runs that turn out like that =) I'm going to follow you along on your paleo journey. Its something I've thought of trying out after my marathon!
