Fortunately, my run went great! I ended up running 11 miles. My training plan gives you a range for long runs, and I have been doing the lowest number to prevent any hamstring flare-ups. My leg has been feeling great lately though, so I went for a little more this week.
After my run I was craving something salty. Particularly, french fries. I rarely eat fast food, but I could not get the idea of a McD's grilled chicken sandwich and fries out of my head. So, I finally gave in. I have not eaten at a McD's since we lived in Virginia, probably a year and half ago or more. But sometimes you just have to give in to your body! And it was salty and delicious. But definitely not an every day thing.
My hubby's birthday is on Thursday but he is working swing shift this week. So, I am giving him his birthday card today. He is not a big cake person, so this is what I gave him in lieu of a cake:
A "cake" made of protein bars!
He loves Clif Builder Bars and Pure Protein bars, but usually forgoes them since they can be more pricey than other brands. Next weekend we are going to celebrate his birthday properly with a 15 mile run, homemade pizza, and a giant chocolate chip cookie. Perfect day in my opinion :)
