Now that it’s been consistently nice out, I have been able to run outside. I always find, no matter how much I think that I am staying active and keeping in shape at the gym over the winter, the first run outside pretty much kills me. On top of making me super sleepy, running makes me pretty hungry. I am definitely one of those people who has to eat before and after they work out or my energy stores plummet to zero. It always feels like going for a run takes every last bit of energy out of me. While I usually depend on smoothies to get me through, it’s also nice to have a snack hanging around when you get home. Sometimes you just need something to actually chew on.
