It’s Wednesday again already! How on earth did that happen? And Wednesday means it’s time for this…
Yep, it’s WIAW! Today began as days usually begin at the moment. Look at the lovely leaf on my ‘heritage’ apple!
Then I came home and had another bowl of porridge and my usual pre-run rye toast with peanut butter. I didn’t bother taking pictures of those! I wouldn’t usually have the porridge as well, but I’d planned to run 10 miles so thought I should have something extra. In the end I didn’t run 10 miles – there was only a small group doing that route and they were all going to be way faster than me, and I didn’t know the route so I’d either have got lost or slowed them all down, and as they’re training for things I didn’t think that would be fair! So I ran the middle distance, 4.4 miles, and made sure I kept up a decent 9:30-mile pace.
When I got back, I had the chocolate hemp shake I’d made before my run – I didn’t really need it but it was sitting in the fridge so I thought I might as well have it! I tried the strawberry hemp powder on Monday night and it was actually much nicer than the chocolate, which surprised me!
And then I had a proper dinner – I always need something quick and easy after running club, as I don’t usually get home until 8:45pm, and tonight I decided to use up the bag of spinach and ricotta tortellini that kept falling out of the freezer at me every time I opened the door. I just fried up some mushrooms and added garlic, herbs and a mini tub of extra-light Philadelphia, and mixed it all in with the pasta. It was lovely – I haven’t had pasta for ages!
