…and it feels so good! My canister of oats was screaming for me this morning. Dust was building, it said. The oats were lonely. I’ve neglected the old-fashioned oats over the past week, but we’re together again. All is right with the world.
I enjoyed a simple blend this morning. I wanted to make sure I ate my oats in their purest, oatiest form!
- 1/2 c. old-fashioned oats
- 3/4 c. water
- 1/4 c. skim milk
- 1 banana sliced
- 1 T. ground flaxseed
- 1 T. Barney Butter
Just the classics…just what I needed to start fresh this week. Back to school!
Last night I went into total geek mode. It’s no surprise to those who know me – I’m a geek! I looked over my training plan and added up my mileage – 271.57 miles of training for 13.1 miles on May 2nd. I’m excited!
This week is all about tapering. I will run 2-3 short, easy runs throughout the week. This is the first time I experience the feelings that go along with tapering. I feel like I need to move. Need to run! I keep reading about tapering and reminding myself that it’s a tried and true running strategy. I have high hopes!
And another week begins! Happy Monday!
Any great tips for preparation in the week before a big race? I’d love to learn from you!
