It’s that time of the week again friends. Time to join Jenn’s WIAW party!!
Love. This. Party. I swear I spend half my Wednesday reading other people’s WIAWs! (In case you are new here (hi!!) I always post my What I Ate Tuesday because of those crazy time differences!)
What I Ate
I’m sure you can guess what breakfast was.
Buried under all the vanilla pudding, chocolate pudding, blueberries, and crunchy PB, is banana oatmeal
*Insert a morning spent watching the World Athletics Championships in PJs and eating figs dipped in almond butter*
Have I mentioned that I have an appetite that won’t quit? Oh yeah, I told you that in yesterday’s fun facts! Well here’s the proof in my afternoon snackage:
PB choc chip oatmeal muffin with soy yoghurt. This snack I have had FIVE times in the last two days! That is how awesome it is!!
Amy’s Split Pea soup! SO yummy!!
They taste SO good!! I am definitely going to try to recreate these!
Pimped rice cakes x 10000. Topped with drippy PB, maple syrup and strawberry jam.
I love snacking
What I Worked
MY FAVOURITE RUN!! Tempo runs are my absolute FAVOURITE because:
a) You feel like you are FLYING for a long time, unlike short intervals!
b) You feel seriously Kenyan-esque powering past every other runner/person. Until you remember the Kenyans run at like 4.30 min/miles or something equally crazy.
c) They are a great workout! And apparently the best running workout you can do for increasing speed-endurance.
d) They are FUN
Anyway, today’s tempo was awesome, but my silly Garmin kept playing up:
Anyway, although I didn’t know my exact pace or distances, I know I pushed my pace for at least half an hour, and I was seriously feeling that lactic build up at the end!! FUUUN!!
What I Am Changing!
Here’s the old look:
And here’s the new one!
I like it SO much more!! Plus it’s not as big- my last one took up about half my page! And a HUGE thanks to the wonderful Emily at The Blog Fairy for this!! She does all things blog-related, so whatever you need, she can help!
So I’m off to munch on my midnight snack now!
Apple with Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut Butter, which I always eat straight from the jar. This is my current favourite (bought) nut butter!! So ADDICTIVE!!
What was the best thing you ate today/yesterday? See above for all of mine haha!
What was your last workout? Tomorrow it’s cross-training and lifting time for me!
What is your current favourite nut butter? Actually it’s cake batter cashew butter, but shop-bought, it’s definitely Justin’s! It does change pretty much weekly though!
Have an awesome Wednesday friends!! <3
