Last week, I did absolutely no running so I could take a mental and physical break after my recent half marathon.
Brian and I are going to run the Drumstick Dash this Thanksgiving just like last year, and Brian hasn’t run a single mile since the Firecracker 6 race we did back in July for the wedding so we thought it may be a good idea to get our legs back in the groove.
Yesterday was officially the coldest day of the year since March so naturally Brian and I thought it would be a great idea to go running in it!
To say we were cold was a bit of an understatement…and notice the white stuff? Yep! It snowed here in Indiana.
Honestly, it wasn’t that bad, it just made me really think about properly layering my clothing AND it made me wonder how the heck I run outside in weather like that (or WORSE than that) when January comes around for Mini Marathon training.
After my chilly run and a hot shower, I was more than ready for some hot food.
Actually, I did contemplate a smoothie but I knew I had to stay true to the November Breakfast Challenge so I held off on the smoothie and decided on something warm.
I opted for the Oatmeal Artists Fudgy Banana and Peanut Butter Oatmeal.
Yep, it’s a delicious as it sounds, super filling, healthy, AND it doesn’t take long to cook.
I am loving the Oatmeal Artists delicious ideas and recipes. They are REALLY helping me out with this breakfast challenge 🙂
