Finally getting back into a typical weekend exercise routine after a month filled with weekend travel, illness, and other distractions. I ran 9 miles yesterday, went to Bodyworks and Yoga class this morning, and then chased all this great exercise with a giant bag of Tostitos and Salsa.

Gotta keep reminding myself two hours of exercise does not cancel out two hours of binge eating.

Does four hours of exercise cancel it out? I forgot I did an hour of physically demanding yardwork after yoga AND gave my dog a bath. Score one for being productive!

I wasnt thrilled with my run yesterday. It was a struggle I have some serious work to do if Im hopeful to achieve my personal goals for the Disney Wine and Dine half marathon in November. I would like to record a personal best, but Im on track for achieving a personal worst.

Dont get me wrong I felt great for sticking with my plan to run 9 miles. Around mile 4, I considered turning around. After all, isnt 8 miles good enough? But then I convinced myself it was all in my head I knew I could get to 9 miles because I had done it before. I dont remember WHEN my last 9 mile run was it very well could have been the last half marathon I ran which was over a year ago. Still, I had a lot going for me it was perfect running weather, I had no where else to be at the time, and there were adorable kittens hanging out on my running route.

I guess the kittens DID slow me down a little bit. It was hard not to stop to say hi.

Anyway, I think my inconsistent diet is definitely having an impact on my ability to run well, consistently. I go from periods of wheatless-ness to cheat days to very low carb to no wheat (but still high carb). My knees crack, my shoulder is bothering me and I have a race coming up next Saturday. Its only a 5k, but Im not sure what to do over the week nutritionally in order to prepare. Ill probably continue to focus on trying to get a good wheat free streak going as I have been doing for the last few months.

Any recommendations as to what to have for breakfast on race day? My breakfasts as of late have been chia pudding ( ) but it didnt work out so well yesterday for my long run.
