Friday has come so quickly here! I can’t believe it. I guess I’m having a pretty good time despite the fact that I’m taking a class.
Back up to this morning. I was up at 7 a.m. for a pre-run breakfast. I decided to eat something a little more substantial to see how my stomach did:
I used to eat peanut butter toast before a long run, but I found it seemed like too much food without much digestion time. Today I went back to it because my long runs have been increasingly difficult: I have less energy to finish them.

I had 6 miles on the agenda today, so I did 2 miles out and back and stopped at my car to refill my fuel belt. I checked my phone and saw the match was still going on! I couldn’t bear to miss it, so I gave up on my last two miles and headed back to watch the end of it.
What an incredible match! My favorite tennis player is Roger Federer, but I always cheer for Nadal second. He’s just so dominate on clay and I love seeing one of the best players in history in action.

Dinner tonight was another attempt to use up my extra produce for the week:
