What Time is It?

I just noticed that I didn't even talk about my workout yesterday. I ran a very happy, relaxing 4 miles. I really was looking forward to my spin class afterwards. Since it was V-Day, the normal instructor was off. The sub was horrible. She sang to every single song (very loud) and she wasn't good. I had to leave class early, before got got a headache.

Tonight, I had 8 miles on the schedule. 8 miles was my B**ch tonight. It was such a nice run. I felt like it was run through a rain forest or something. It was pretty wet, and rainy outside. Obviously, I didn't run in it, but from the tm, I could see and hear the weather. It was so nice. It wasn't as fast as I'd hope (88 minutes), but it was accomplished. Next time, I know to push myself harder.

One thing I'm starting to have trouble with is my feet. I'm getting horrible blisters. I put stuff on my feet, but where I didn't put it is where the new blisters appear. Do you guys have any suggestions? My shoes are super comfy and seem to fit great. It's only on longer runs when I get these blisters (6 miles or longer). If I get brave enough, I'll post a picture.

When I got home, I was starving. I needed calories so badly (even though I properly fueled with an energy/protein bar). I drank lots of water, but was craving my calories. Tonight, we had breakfast for dinner. We had the works, french toast, scrambled eggs, sausage and a potato pancake.

The sausage (so good. If you can find them, buy it and eats lots of it).

This is what goes in the scrambled eggs.

Along with a piece of cheese.

I love this bread (it's what I make my sandwiches with). It didn't make the french toast too well. But, it was what I needed.

The final product. It didn't take much time to consume! I washed all this down with a yummy glass of OJ!!

This is just what my body was needing. So good!!
Please give me advice on my feet. It's desperately needed!!


  1. I'm new, but I assume you already know plenty about non-cotton running socks. Those were my blister saviors when I started running. If you already have that, then I would presume your socks are getting wet (rain certainly doesn't help) or your shoes are a bit too loose.

    The best protectants I've found are mole skin for short runs, duct tape for any runs, and if the blister breaks open, fast drying glue (I know, it sounds odd, but it works).

    Best of luck!!

  2. Breakfast for dinner is the best!

    i wear two-layer socks and don't have issues with blisters.

  3. Looks really good! Are you wearing good socks? That's always something to look at if you are having foot problems.

  4. I love BFD nights. :) I absolutely love the lay out and color scheme of your blog. VERY easy to read. :)

  5. Sorry about your blisters! The right socks make the difference. I like Target's duo dry socks. They are cheap and I found they work better than more expensive ones. My last marathon I tore a hole in my expensive addidas socks! Way to finish those 8 miles. Good job!
