Polenta and Veggies

First off I had a horrible 10 miles yesterday, it all started because I pushed my body way too hard last week and didn't allow myself to rest.  I even caught a cold because I ran in the cold rain on Saturday.  Bad Idea!

So my run yesterday was hard, my legs felt heavy, it was very hot.  All I could think about was where is water and my heartburn.  It was awful.  I decided that I am going to try my hardest not to run again until my 20 milers on Saturday.  I know I will be tempted to run Thursday but I am seriously going to try to rest.  I have yoga twice this week and also doing my Tracy Anderson so we will see.

Anyways this was my breakdown of what I ate today. (minus the snacks, like cottage cheese and whole wheat pretzels and dark chocolate)

Fiber One cereal with my homemade granola and Almond milk.

After my cereal I had this delicious Peanut Butter on a banana.

For lunch I made a mixed greens salad with pear, almonds,
blue cheese crumbles and balsamic.


This was my dinner experiment
I really wanted it to be pizza but it did not go down like that...


Because my polenta came out of a pre-made package I could not 
spread it so instead I just smashed it up and put the ingredients on top.

I was pretty skeptical but it actually tasted so good!  
Baked in the oven at 400 for 15 mins.



  1. Sorry you had a bad 10-miler yesterday! But I'm glad you got through it. Hopefully you're able to get some rest this week and feel good for your 20-miler this weekend!

    I just recently realized how good polenta can be (when prepared well that is!). I think it can add a lot to your meal!

  2. Good plan to rest up for your 20 miles this weekend. Love this idea for a polenta "pizza". Looks delicious!

  3. That pizza 'salad' looks great! Good luck rockin' your 20 this weekend! I'll be running a 1/2 on sunday that i'm totally unprepared for due to injury recovery time!

  4. Looks yummy, even though it didn't come out as you planned, sometimes those are the best put together meals!

  5. Hey there! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love to get new readers and followers! This recipe looks delicious! I might have to write it down and remember it for future reference!

  6. Hi! Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog. It's nice to make new blogger friends.

    I'm sorry about your "horrible 10 miler." I know how you feel. Sometimes I just have to remind myself... even though that wasn't the best run, I'm still running laps around the person sitting on the couch!

  7. thanks for checking out my blog!! excited to follow you :)

    I LOVE that dark choc pb!! my new favorite!!

  8. Ugh I am so sorry to hear you had a bad run. I am glad you are going to take a break, it sounds very much needed.

    That polenta dish looks SO good!
