Yesterday, J and I had lunch from the farmers’ market that comes to our campus every Thursday. I had half of a turkey panini and a chorizo empanada. Delicious!! Then, after picking up Jillian from daycare, we walked around the harbor. It was a beautiful evening – warm with a slight breeze. We enjoyed spending time together as a family. I ate a lamb gyro and fries from a local spot. It tasted great!!
Turns out that eating delicious, great, and… greasy food does not agree with me. My run this morning was horrible. I barely had any energy. That food was good going down, but didn’t provide healthy calories. We normally eat very well, and yesterday was a reminder why eating healthy is so important. I need good fat and calories to fuel my workouts.
I have to eat extra well over the next two days since I am running a half-marathon on Sunday. I hope to get a personal record, and run my best race ever. But, no pressure or anything… 🙂
