Cross Train Will Make Ya...Run! Run!

LOL!  Remember these punks with the backwards jeans??  Haha!  Flashback! 
Anyway, now that the knee is better and I'm getting back in to running again, I'm vowing to be better about cross training this time around.  I think it might help me to strengthen my legs and body in general and I'm hoping that'll help me stay injury free.  That's the goal!

Before my workout last night I gobbled a banana and mini Lara Bar.

Then I popped in my old friend Jillian Michaels to let her kick my butt for a while. 

She was a little mean and snarky to me, but I just ignored her and did my thing.  After a sweaty workout, I took Clyde for a long walk so he could burn off annoying puppy energy get his workout on too.  Clyde really pushed himself and I see some speedwork in his near future ;).

Post work-out, we had a little left over action for dinner.

Basically a mexican salad with my leftovers from Sunday night.

Later, while watching Bachelor Pad (how crazy is that show??), I tore into this for dessert:
This would be a Whole Fruit Coconut Fruit Bar.  OMG...  so delicious.  It's a coconut popiscle.  It's awesome....

Tonight I got home and got ready for a run.
I ate a small bowl of banana soft serve with Justin's Maple Almond Butter in it for my pre-run snack.

 I headed out on my longest run since June- 4.5 miles on the Greenway. I met my friend Michelle and the run felt GREAT! I easily could have done more, but didn't push it. We excitedly talked about races we want to do this fall. We are going to try and find another trail run to do together and maybe a 10K too.
Can't wait!!  I also may or may not have made a half-marathon training plan on Runner's World Smart Coach...  Eeeeek!  I'm looking at half's in November, so I've got 10 weeks right now.
After my run, it was back to the hacienda.  I took Clyde out for his nightly walk and came back for dinner.  (My night's are eerily the same almost every night, I know).

Tonight I actually had some fancied up Kraft mac and cheese (yes, it's the devil, but I couldn't resist). I basically added peas and a little shredded cheddar.

Clyde begged me to try it and I let him lick the bowl with a couple saved elbows...

I'm off to shower and read this

My new read now that I've finally finished Eat Pray Love.

Basil alternates between speedwork and Savasana. ;)

It is so weird, I have been craving Kraft for about 3 weeks... I think I'm going to have to break down and get some. :)

Fun blog, I found you on Emily's blog. I too have a love/hate relationship with Jillian Michaels. :)

And just bought the Whole Fruits strawberry bars to compare to Edy's Fruit Bars, since I'm addicted! I look forward to reading more of your posts.
