Why I Run: Nutella Edition

Workout: Ran on treadmill 5.25 miles (46 min – I think), walked 10 min

This turned into an unintentional tempo run. It felt really good to go fast, too. I think taking a day of rest yesterday and eating a cookie, Butterfinger Snackerz, Dove chocolate, nerds, and vanilla tootsie rolls at lunch really paid off.

I took a short walking break after mile 3, but my speed looked like this:

Mile 0 – 1.5:  6.0/6.2
Mile 1.5 – 3.0: 6.6  (my dream half marathon pace)
Mile 3: 6.7
Mile 4: 7.0/7.2 alternating each minute
Mile 5: 7.0

I watched No Ordinary Family during my run. That show is starting to grow on me. Plus, Bret Harrison from Reaper is guest staring and I love him.

Speaking of love. My favorite treat right now is marshmallows dipped in Nutella. This stuff reaches a “graham crackers with cream cheese frosting” level of love with me. I really shouldn’t have it in the house.

Nutella makes everything better. I want to put it on anything just so I have an excuse to eat it. Marshmallows, graham crackers, oatmeal, old batteries, lamp posts. Once I start, it’s hard to stop.

Nutella is like part of the family. I’d give it gifts for Christmas if it had opposable thumbs and wasn’t a plastic jar. I’d take care of it in its time of need.

Shave the Nutella

Put the Nutella to bed

That wasn’t creepy, right?

Well, I’m off to go watch some TV with my jar of Nutella.

What food do you need to be careful about eating before you realize you’ve consumed 3000 calories of it?

    I have never tried Nutella! After your lovely display of pictures your Nutella baby, I think I need to pick up a jar.

    I always need to watch my intake red vines. I can eat a jumbo size bag of red vines to myself easy. In fact, I practically did the other day! Haha

  6. MMMMM….Nutella……I have completely banned myself from Cheeze – Its and whipped cream. Basically anything chocolate runs a big risk in my house, ice cream, reeses, cookies, chocolate chips….essentially I have the willpower of Lindsey Lohan.

    I can’t seem to get into TV on the treadmill, I wish I could though!
