Momentum's June 22nd-June 28th

I am back. Sorry was missing from here for a while. I have been doing my runs at a slow and steady pace and doing cross training. Haven't done much of strength training but need to start doing that ASAP. I have purchased a fuel belt and an awesome sports bra....I love it.

SUNDAY June 22nd
Pre-workout snack: 1 cup soymilk
Long run day today. Ran 6 miles.
Breakfast: Two pieces of wheat toast, one cube of swiss cheese, 1 tbsp nutella, 1 cup soymilk
Today's run was good. I ran 4.5 miles without difficulty but made the biggest mistake of stopping and walking for a little bit especially because I was doing so good and had found my pace. I should not have done that because it was hard for me to pick up the pace after that. Also should have carried Gatorade in my fuel belt instead of water.

Lunch: 1 naan without butter, paneer shaslik, rice and dal. Yummy home made food!!

Snack: 1 puran poli with dal (I know it is a wierd combo but it tasted yummy...sweet puran poli and spicy dal)

Dinner: 2 chapatis, cabbage subzi, 2 katoris taak.
