This week’s WIAW features my usual weekend eats when I’m spending a summer weekend at my parents’ house in Connecticut, as I did this past weekend. It’s typically an apple and peanut butter, an apple and homemade muffin, or apple and Larabar before my Saturday long run. Usually in the summer I will eat a lighter snack because the heat makes it harder for me to digest before getting out there, but as I get into marathon training I’m trying to figure out the right balance of fueling well without it feeling like too much. This time it was half an apple and two Apple Cinnamon Flax Muffin Bites with peanut butter.
Afterwards, eggs and yogurt and fruit for brunch. More specifically, a Turkey Cheddar Omelet with Udi’s gluten free toast, a Greek yogurt with peanut butter and some Stonewall Kitchen jam from our trip to Maine, and a bowl of June strawberries.
Uncharacteristically, I didn’t end up eating lunch because we were out and about in town. Fortunately, we stopped by Deborah Ann’s a second time for the weekend on Saturday to pick up a box of chocolates for my parents for their anniversary, which meant a second round of celebratory ice cream. Friday night was soft serve with Reese’s for me and strawberry for Brett, and Saturday we both went for banana chocolate chip, mine with rainbow sprinkles.
We made dinner for my parents, and since they liked the make-your-own-Mexican-ish food from the grill that we made over Memorial Day Weekend, it was a repeat!
For dessert, even more ice cream, this time a few pints picked up from Ferris Acres, and some of the chocolate we bought. A delicious end to a wonderful Saturday.
Do you change your pre run snack with the seasons?
