August 1st already.. what the heck!? I can't believe July is over and there is only a month until school starts again! Yikes.
A new month means a new theme for What I Ate Wednesday:
This month, the focus of WIAW is Summer Staples. My favorite summer foods? Summer fruits like cherries, nectarines, strawberries, peaches, watermelon... I could seriously go on and on! Another summer staple for me is definitely Popsicles- store bought or homemade! My surrent favorite is the mango greek yogurt flavour from Superstore, they are so yummy! I made some of my own popsicles yesterday, and I cant wait to try them.
|I had to take this picture this morning becaus I shoveled the food in my mouth so fast on my way out the door for my run. A piece of delicious homemade whole wheat bread with my new Dark Chocolate Dreams PB!|
|Second breakfast after my run- Strawberries, Oikos lime greek yogurt and Jordans Muesli|
|My delicious lunch bowl- 1 scrambled egg + 4 egg whites (leftover from a pie I made on the weekend), sliced mushrooms, salsa, avocado and a pinch of cheese. It was so filling and yummy! lucky for Baxter, I couldn't finish the whole thing :)|
|Jambalaya pasta. I scraped off most of the cheese and gave it to Will, and ate maybe a quarter of it. It was sooo good though!!|
Now, onto the 1/2 marathon training update!
So far, so good on the foot front. I went for a trail run with my "little" sister Lindsey yesterday ( I say "little" because although she's three years younger than me, she has a good 5 inches on me!), and the uneven surface bothered my foot a little bit, but overall it wasn't too bad!
I have a speedwork session planned for this evening at the track, and a longer run (13km I believe) planned for Thursday morning. I had to move my long run for the weekend to Thursday because of the triathlon on Sunday. I am doing the swim leg which is 1500m. I have been watching the Olympic swimming events, that totally counts as training right?
Anyone else have races coming up?
What are your summer staples?
