I have a secret, and I’m going to share it with you. I believe breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And I’m not alone, there are many, who agree. Usually I’ll have a healthy bowl of cereal (sometimes not so healthy), and sometimes I even put fruit on that bowl of grains.
And by now I’m sure you are wondering why I’m talking about breakfast when I had to do repeat miles last night? And while I could bore you about not getting to the gym before 8:15pm, noticing I forgot my running shorts, seriously considering running in my boxers (it was dark, nobody would have noticed I told myself), running home to get them and debating whether I should run the repeat miles from home (before noticing the sidewalks were not at all lit around my home), returning to the gym only to start at 9pm, then facing 20-30mph winds—I’ll spare you.
My secret is that, lately, I’ve only been eating Pop-Tarts for breakfast. Only Pop-Tarts, and for a long while. I know, unhealthy and full of empty calories. But they are delicious, and come in flavors such as Smores and Vanilla Milkshake. And last night, after my exhausting repeat miles, I had to do some shopping. While at the store, I noted a sale on my beloved Pop-Tarts, four boxes (each with four tasty pairs) for only $6. Delicious and cheap!
Do not tell my mother…pinky swear you won’t. Oh, and the numbers: 5:51, 6:07, 6:14, 6:10.
