I guess yesterday my body was craving fiber. That or the heat made it impossible to think of eating anything actually cooked. Lunch was a salad with everything green I could find. Spinach, green beans, edamame, cucumber, corn, flax, and a little shredded mozzarella.
Obviously I needed a little something something to round out the meal so I went with a little fruit salad of all my favorites. It was officially the first pineapple of the summer and it was exactly as delicious as I thought it would be!

Lest you think this is just too healthy for me, don't worry. I was just getting the greens in so I could enjoy my new favorite PB. Julia was showing off her new Dark Chocolate Dreams Peanut Butter so I had to buy it and try it out. Yeah, it's giving White Chocolate Wonderful PB a serious run for its money. Every time I reach for a spoon I'm faced with some serious decisions.
So now I'm about to head out for my long run of the week. Since I'm not on a training plan yet, I haven't decided on my mileage at all. The plan is to....run. Until it stops being fun! Hoping I can get at least 8 miles before it gets too hot!
If you had to pick: dark chocolate dreams or white chocolate wonderful?
Don't make me decide!! So far dark chocolate PB is amazing in oatmeal, but on it's own off the spoon I think I'll stick to white chocolate. I love making decisions like this!
Do you always have a planned distance when you set out for a run, or do you just see how you feel when you're out there?
I almost always have an idea of how far I would like to go. Sometimes it's hot or I don't feel well, so I cut it a bit short. And sometimes I keep running if I feel great!
