I’m super excited to tell you I ran over 22 miles last week! The breakdown was 3 6-milers and 1 just over 4 miles. It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to run this much (thank you knees and ankle). But I’m feeling great now and loving it!
This morning I ran 5 miles at an avg. 8:25 min/mile pace. Faster than last week. Yea! I have a friend running the Uberthon Oregon Marathon and I think I might do the Half. That would give me about 9 1/2 weeks until race day and I totally think I could do it. I’ve run a half before about 4 years ago. I can’t believe it’s taken this long to get back into running so much.
For fast fueling before and after, these peanut butter granola bar bites would be a great choice. They have good protein with natural peanut butter and other nuts plus some carbs in the oatmeal. Mixed with unsweetened chopped dates and it’s a great fueling snack.
What’s your go to filling snack? Want to run this half marathon too?
