Decisions, Decisions

Good morning :)

I am running outside this morning!

This is not something I have been able to do this winter. I live in an area that is surrounded by busy country roads that are filled with transport trucks!

Snow + ice + blind corners + trucks do not mix for me. I can tolerate it in the summer (although it is still scary), but I have had to keep my running indoors this winter.

I thought it would be fun to change it up by meeting a couple girlfriends in Toronto for a run!  And, I mean…running causes hunger, and there are yummy restaurants in the city, right? It’s a win, win. If I run around my house I get a mouthful of slush.

Last night I was hotly debating my outdoor running wear. The weather forecast looks cloudy, 2C/35F, and we just had a series of mini snowstorms in the area. I am sure my feet and pants are going to get soaked! I decided on long black pants, white workout tank, light yellow zip-up, gloves, and then another jacket overtop. I’m sure I’ll be sweating like a pig. ;)

And then it hit me: Do I wear my knee sleeves?

As I mentioned in a previous post, I have not had to wear my knee sleeves yet this year (on my treadmill). Last year my knees hurt while running on the treadmill (and outdoors). I attribute my decrease in knee pain to the strength training I have been doing with Booty Camp Fitness. I have been doing a ton of lunges, squats, one leg dead lifts, one leg squats, calf raises, etc etc and my legs feel stronger than ever! I think I am not going to wear the knee sleeves today and see how my knees feel. I have a feeling they will be fine. :)

Krissy, Jess and I will be running 10 km along Lakeshore:


Our route may or may not take us to a certain favourite restaurant in Toronto. :)

I woke up EARLY this morning, as if I was running in a race or something! So strange.

I made a pot of Japanese Sencha:


and I gobbled down a Run glo bar:


Ok, ok, I will spill the deets. We are going to Fresh after the run!

What to eat post-run?

I have been thinking about what I will get post-run…I am going to be very hangry indeed.

Check out their menu and let me know what YOU would get at fresh after a 10k run!

Decisions, decisions…

I’m thinking some kind of juice to start and then a very filling meal…

See you later this afternoon for a recap!

The energy bowl on soba is always a great pick after a long + hard workout.

Hope the run + lunch were good!

Mmmmmm!!! Fresh is my favourite restaurant!!!! My boyfriend bought me one of the cookbooks for my birthday! I’m a lover of the black bean burrito and the buddha bowl! Sad that they took the ninja bowl off though. :( Have fun on your run, I’ve run on that area of the Lakeshore a few times and love it!

At first i was going to say the miso burger… then i saw the prix fixe and was like, well she wanted a juice first… but then i saw quinoa onion rings??? I would make a sampler out of the cornbread, rings and dosas (followed by dessert, obv.) What a menu!!

Ahh, I live right on Lakeshore! I wish I had seen this earlier, I would have caught up to ya! lol

And Fresh… yum! It has been way too long since I have been there!
