I was off my running game this morning. For some reason, I’ve been feeling sluggish this week. I’m training for a half-marathon in November, so I’ve got to get my butt in gear.
Before my AM run, I whipped up some oats for breakfast.
Peanut Butter and Jelly Oats
1/2 cup oats
3/4 cup water (I like dryer oats)
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp peanut butter
1 Tbsp jelly
1 tsp honey
Mix water and oats in a microwavable bowl
Mix in vanilla and cinnamon
Microwave for 2 minutes, then add peanut butter, jelly and honey
Combine and enjoy!
I think oatmeal is the ideal breakfast food, especially for runners. Wholesome and filling.
Question: What training schedule do you use to prepare for runs like half marathons?
