Happy run & post-run snack

Today started out as one of those days where I just didn’t want to run. The weather report was screaming rain, the thermostat was showing it was 4 degrees (that’s 39,2 fahrenheit) outside. I am not a huge fan of cold and wet weather. But after a lot of back and forth I realized I had to get at least a short run. I mean, come on, marathon training can’t always take place in the ideal weather. So I changed into my running clothes and went out. In my head this would be a very short and easy 5-6 km run.

It became something completely different, and I couldn’t be happier (well, I could, but we’ll get to that in a minute)! I started running my regular route, thinking I would take a shortcut after reaching 4 or 5 km. That didn’t happen, I just kept going. I was feeling too great to cut it short. I wasn’t planning on running fast or anything, I wasn’t even trying. But then I reached 10 km and I almost fell out of my shoes when the GPS on my phone screamed “10 kilometers in 1 hour, 5 seconds!”. I couldn’t believe it, I had almost done 10 km in less than an hour, without even trying. If it hadn’t been for that stupid bus I had to stop for at 9,something km I would have reached the magical number! Stupid bus.

After some stretching and bragging to my boyfriend about how happy I was with my run I threw together a little post-run snack. Nothing too fancy, just a small bowl with strawberries and banana. Delicious though! I also had an Apple Pie Questbar, but I didn’t realize I had it before after I took the picture haha.

  1. Those are just about the best runs you can have. Go out, enjoying yourself during the run, next thing you know your clicking off some good miles.

    Post request, I’d like to hear about where your at in marathon training and how things are looking as you get ready for your first marathon.

    • Absolutely! It’s weird how runs I don’t think are going to go too great turn out to be my best. My second half marathon was also like that haha.
