Last Long Run..It’s Taper Time


Woke up 3:30am and quickly ate my piece of toast with pb and 1/2 banana. I also had about a half of cup of coffee. I then ran out of the door at 4:15 to meet up with the Renagades to run my last 20 mile run for my Boston training.

The run was ok, I wasn’t feeling my best, but I finished!!! I ran at a 8:47 average pace, and with the AMOUNT of HILLS we ran, this was an AWESOME time!!! My running group LOVES hills, well not really but we can’t avoid them where we live. I am a little worried about my left IT band it was a little tight and worked up to my left hip. I am going to buy a foam roller today and make sure to really stretch it!

When I got home I made a PROTEIN packed breakfast.



  • 1 c almond milk
  • 1/8 c blueberries
  • 1/4 c cherries
  • 2 Kale Leaves
  • handful of baby spinach
  • 1 scoop whey protein 
  • 1 banana
  • 1 tbsp of Fage
  • 1 tbsp of PB
  • 1 tbsp of Flax Seed



  • 2 WW Nature’s Path Frozen Waffles
  • 4 tbsp of egg whites mixed with 1 tsp of cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp of 0% Fage
  • 1 tbsp TJ’s Cranberry Apple Butter
  • Sliced Pecans
  • handful of flax granola

I dipped the waffles in the egg whites and the cooked over the stove in a griddle for about 1 minute on each side. Then topped off the waffles with Fage and Cranberry Apple Butter. Then sprinkled the pecans and granola on top for the added crunchiness.

I am off to get my long list of chores done today!
