Peanut Butter, Peanut Butter…



Most of the time I was running today, I was thinking about a slice of wholemeal toast with peanut butter on it!

Maybe because I brought some peanut butter for the first time in ages yesterday?

We hardly ever have it as none of our boys like it…Strange.

The other day I had this really strange run.

The whole time, I felt like I was not breathing right for my pace or that new runners mental breathing in the first ten minutes…

You know where your head tells you to stop as it’s too hard, can’t breathe, stop etc etc…

Or for us old dog runners… when you go too fast and you need to regulate your breathing and you sort of get a horrible breathless feeling?

I felt like that the whole time but I wasn’t running fast or anything…could still sing when running, was doing an average long run pace…

It was like a bad run but just the breathing wasn’t feeling right, not the mental too hard or physical aches….

Tomorrow morning we are taking the boys out for a Brekkie brunch at the Stamford Plaza.

We thought a full buffet would be good for the lads, what with their tendency to hoover up the food:)

I must say I am not a buffet fan but this is a very nice hotel, so there will be no bum pickers or gross snot wipers picking at food with their grubby mitts!!

Have been looking forward to it all week so I will be doing my long run before I go, so I will hungry when I get there…

Here is a selection of what I will be enjoying guilt free, in the morning, after my run:)
