This morning, since it was going to be for short bursts only, I wasn't too concerned about getting extra calories beforehand. I certainly do not like to run or walk with a heavy stomach. So I ate most of a banana and had something to drink and off I went.
It was a really good training session and I stuck to the grass and gravel next to the paved trail on the greenway. I have been trying to get a photograph of the beautiful Kingfisher that likes to hang out by the ponds, but haven't had much luck. This morning, of course, since I did not have my camera, he was kind enough to pose for me three times! He finally took off during my third time around the inner loop. I believe he decided he'd had enough fun tormenting me for one morning :)
Since I don't have a photo of the Kingfisher to share, I thought I would share my post-run meal. I have been vegetarian, (primarily vegan), since before the start of 2014 and would like to add that I haven't been sick once since getting back on this path. I don't like to eat too many processed and packaged, ready made vegan foods, but it is nice to have them handy occasionally and they are pretty tasty too!
