I had a 6 mile run scheduled for this morning. When the alarm went off I was feeling great so I threw on my running clothes, drank a big glass of water and headed out. The first mile felt awesome. I turned on the 90’s pop station on Pandora and was rocking out to my old favorites like Oasis, N’sync, and backstreet boys! Even though I hadn’t heard most of those songs in 10 years, I still remembered all the words and sang along the whole time. By mile 3 I started slowing down but I was still feeling okay. At mile 4 I was starving and my stomach was growling out loud! I managed to knock out the last 2 miles but they were super slow and I was seriously out of fuel. Note to self, even if your not hungry, you need to eat something before you run, especially if it’s going to be more than a few miles. Lesson learned.
As I approached my house after my run I smelled bacon. I was thinking, “PLEASE let that smell be coming from my house!!!” It was my lucky day. Kelly was making bacon and eggs just in time for me to make a Healthy Egg McMuffin and stuff my face. I had a Whole Wheat English Muffin with a wedge of laughing cow spreadable cheese, 2 slices of bacon, and some scrambled eggs. It was seriously the bomb.com!
I am so glad I did my grocery shopping last night after dinner. My fridge is full of delicious produce and these strawberries complemented my Egg McMuffin perfectly. There is nothing better than a fridge full of healthy choices to supply every craving I might have.
Do you eat before a morning workout?
What is your feeling on 90’s pop music?
