Monday…What can I say?  I like the weekends way better. Its rough to get up early after sleeping in, that’s for sure! I woke up this morning and was in need of a little yogurt/granola mix. Chobani sent me all these samples of different flavors. I can’t wait to try them all!mas pics 546

I started off testing out the Strawberry Greek yogurt. I was surprised to find out there was fruit on the bottom. I never knew that before about this kind of yogurt. It was a pleasant surprise!

    I also got a package from the Kashi Fairy! I got 3 huge boxes of cereal, a box of granola, tasty little cereal bars, tasty little crackers and tasty little crunchies. I am so excited to try them all! I will review each box as I open it and put it to my taste test! mas pics 605     

    I needed a little snack when I got home today pre-workout so I busted open one of these babies. Today was supposed to be my rest day, after my 12 mile run yesterday, but I am antsy and need to be doing something, so I figured if I did the Shred, that would be ok. I did level 3, and that is NOT EASY. Jillian is nuts in that level!

    This Tasty Little Cereal Bar in Blackberry Graham was quite tasty. It has 7 whole grains, 3 grahams of fiber, 2g of protein, and real fruit. It definitely held me during my Shred workout and well beyond then! It was soft and I loved the blackberry taste!

    The Farthest I Have Ever Run

    Today was the first day I have run since Tuesday. I took off the past few days to get better, since I have been sick. Today, according to the training plan I have been doing, I was supposed to run for 2 hours today. I figured I would just do what I could do, and take it easy. I ran at the gym on the treadmill today because it was threatening rain, and it was also easier on my shins.

    I watched Mission Impossible in the Cardio Cinema at the gym and I ran the whole 2 hours. It was awesome! I felt real good and the time was just flying by watching the movie. I did 12 miles, and now I feel totally ready for the Zooma Half Marathon in 2 weeks. I was going a pretty ‘slow’ pace the whole time so I was pretty proud of how far I went. Yay! I was happy that my few days off didn’t affect my training schedule.

    When I came home I was dying of hunger. Naturally More sent me a tub of peanut butter, and I was ready to rip into it post today’s run.     mas pics 596 mas pics 597 Naturally More peanut butter has:

    • 50% more fiber

    I put the Peanut Butter on Honey Wheat Bread con bananas! It was delish. The peanut butter is a great combination of creamy with a little bit of the chunkiness I love so very much. It tasted so fresh and raw. It was VERY GOOD. I had to give it a little stir, as the tub suggests, but it was very delightful.The perfect post run snack!
