The running break I had to take forced me to focus a lot on nutrition, time management, and stress relief. This was a good thing. I have stepped it up in the food department and I’m learning that my body needs a much more substantial breakfast than I was eating. I also have already felt the benefit from heavier food items like eggs and (never thought I would say this!) the occasional piece of bacon!
My day started very early again (4:40 AM alarm ekkk!). I had to give myself enough time for my 7 mile run before getting to work by 8AM. When I left, it was actually still pretty dark out!
There is something about running before the sun comes up that just feels right. My leg doesn’t feel perfect, so I am running slower than my usual pace and I am trying to be very mindful of how I feel. So far, so good.
Work today was bittersweet. I had to say goodbye to my dear friend & coworker, who is moving on to bigger and better things 😉 I really hate change, in all aspects of my life, so this change is going to take a while to get used to.
This weekend my beautiful & seriously talented sister is coming for a ballroom dance competition and I can’t wait to watch her dance! Now, if only it was 5 PM on Friday already!
How is your week going?
What is your go-to breakfast?
