|But that clearly did not stop me from going to the apple festival and getting pumpkin funnel cake and deep fried oreos.|
As a side note, I wasn't a big fan of deep fried Oreo. The Oreo gets too soggy, but the funnel cake was awesome.
Then I got some veggies and fruits to make a balanced diet.
|I would have taken picture of my corn and hot chocolate, but it was gone too quickly.|
|For fruit, I chose to have caramel coated apple with white chocolate chips, m&m's and nut toppings.|
Great fueling for the long run. And it must have worked, because despite the chilliness, I logged 10 miles in 9:06/mile pace with the last two miles at my Oak Tree Half goal pace.For the Bread Run, I am just aiming for something less than 10:10/mile. It was a great confidence booster that maybe I would be able to finish the half marathon this coming weekend despite a sad lack of training.
Oh and I finally got to try cliff shot blocks. I didn't get that magical boost in energy, but it didn't disagree with me. A step in the right direction!
All in all, it was a great way to start October. A great run along with tons of junk food. Hopefully rest of October stays awesome.
And just to start your October with awesomeness, here's a picture from i<3 to run on fb. I found this sacrilegious since I'm Christian, but it still made me smile. And I sort of think of it whenever I do a long run on Sundays.
