WEEEE!!! I was flying this morning!!!
I FINALLY pulled out my road bike from storage today!! I purchased this bike at the end of the season last year and only rode a handful of times last fall before the snow flew. It was so nice to be able to finally get it out and ride again! 🙂
Here’s how my morning went down:
5:30 a.m. Wake up and realized I’m not that tired, so I decide to get up—even though my alarm was set for 6 a.m.
– Turn my computer on.
– Put dishes away.
– Check my e-mail, Facebook, and read a few blogs on Google reader.
– Go to the bathroom and brush my teeth.
– Change into my running clothes.
6:20 a.m. Run 5 miles. (I am glad this is a taper week, otherwise I would be dragging!)
7:10 a.m. Return from my run and get my things together for our coffee date!
7:40 a.m. Leave for Kaladi Brothers.
Enjoy a coffee date with my husband who kind of woke up on the wrong side of the bed. Although, I think our coffee date cured that. 🙂
Enjoy a delicious breakfast.
1/4 cup quiona
1/8 cup Greek yogurt
1/8 cup milk (maybe a little more)
1 teaspoon chia seeds
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon honey
1/2 banana (I saved a few slices for garnish on top.)
Toppings: strawberry slices, walnuts, unsweetened coconut
(Don’t quote me on these measurements. I actually didn’t measure anything, so I am just guessing.)
The quinoa was a nice change from the oats. The oats can get kind of chewy, but the quinoa (since it was already cooked) was smooth and creamy. The taste of the quiona was a little odd, but the banana, vanilla, and honey did help improve the flavor.
8:20 a.m. Leave the coffee shop and bike home.
8:45 a.m. Arrive at home.
Oh, by the way, it is 50* here this morning, which means it is HALF the temperature it is for those of you on the East Coast—craziness!!!
