Whole New Boyfriend

The boyfriend and I just got back from a run, and guess what? Jason ran further than he ever has before, 3.75 miles! The most he has ever done is a 5k! I’m so proud!!

He has been training to run this weekends 5k with me. Tonight was his long run, so I went with him for motivation. His goal for the race is to just finish, so we ran at an easy 11:00 min/mile pace, and picked it up to 9:30 over the last mile or so.

I am seriously SUPER proud of him! He has been working hard, and is improving so much!

He commented on our walk back to the apartment that running and eating healthier is making him have more energy and he doesn’t feel the need to come home and nap for two hours every day! He also asks for broccoli and fruit in his lunch…umm… who is this boy, and where did the old Jason go?

😀

This afternoon, I paced myself through homework and still managed to have time to make some homemade granola!

I made Apple-Oats Granola and served with plain fat free yogurt . So good!

I got into my study groove and never really took another break. When Jason got home, I changed for our run, and grabbed a banana on the way out the door.

Jason, on the other hand, thought that a giant plate of cookies was a better pre-run snack.

No worries, he didn’t eat all of those, he just didn’t want to dirty another plate (so he claims).

 

After our run, I was craving grilled cheese and tomato soup, but we didn’t have any cheese left.

I settled with tomato soup… (V8 tomato herb, Campbell’s has HFCS!)

…homemade bread…

Clean. Simple. Just what I was in the mood for!

I’m off to finish my hydrology assignment… and snag a cookie out of the kitchen! 😉

 

*** I plan to share the recipes for the homemade bread and the apple-oat granola very soon!***

 

I love that Jason asks me to run with him. He doesn’t even know how happy that makes me! Do you inspire your significant other to run? Have they inspired you?
