Today started off fab- with some porridge and delicious smooth meridian pb.
And at work someone made me chuckle as I was saying how much I love pb, and they went “is it just peanuts and butter mixed together?” Hmm. I did correct them!
Before my run I had an Eat Natural bar- normally I don’t go for these, but I had it in a Boots meal deal (from the day I flew to Italy- it is well travelled) and decided it might give me a boost.
It was delicious anyway. Then I went for my run. I measured out a 6.7 mile route (was supposed to be 6 miles with some tempo in there) and headed out. I managed some decent speeds at times, but my leg is still a bit sore, when going down steep hills, and as the route has some underpasses and things like that, I had to take those slowly. I had a couple of miles at 9.52 and 9.54, but the rest was rather slower. Plus I had loads of waiting as I was running at rush hour (you know, to cross roads).
Dinner was rather random- some chickpea stew with extra veg and sprinkled with some Food Doctor seeds.
The seeds added a lovely crunch, and they are great for protein- 28% (so a little 15g serving has 4.2g which is pretty good.
So my toe nail has not fallen off, and now I think maybe there is some kind of blister/ hard patch thing on the bottom. But who knows. I am sure it is something to do with the pressure- maybe I did my shoes up too tight or something. But anyway, until my actual toe falls off I don’t need to worry!
