The weather improved! Our sun is out, but I hear there are storms coming tonight.
Our trail run was lots of fun. We did 5 miles this time. I timed all the miles again:
Mile 1 – 8:28
Mile 2 – 8:44
Mile 3 – 8:15
Mile 4 – 8:17
Mile 5 – 8:10
I was hoping to break a sub-8 minute mile again but despite nearly sprinting the last mile, I was still a little slow. But I do think my running speed has increased in the past few months. While I do run faster with the husband, I think my pace has improved from between 9:00-9:30 to in the 8’s somewhere.
My coffee detox made me so lethargic and achy this morning. It’s strange because I don’t want to drink coffee and am not craving it at all – but I do want to feel better. I know the only way I’ll feel better is to continue on without it. I had NO IDEA I was dependent on my morning cup or I would’ve cut back months ago. Luckily, about 2 minutes into the run my aches melted away. Ahhhh….the benefits of exercise. They’ve returned a little after lunch and I’m just going to take an IB Profin and hope it helps some.
For lunch today we fired up the grill and cooked some veggies to put on a salad. I drizzled them with some olive oil and sprinkled with kosher salt before grilling.
- Bell peppers
- Turnip (grilled = amazing)
My salad components were:
- Mystery CSA greens
- Grilled veggies
- Goat cheese
- RoseBerry Dressing
On the side I had half an orange -
And a slice of Rudi’s Honey Wheat with a thin layer of AB –
These grilled salads are SO filling. I was really full when I finished it all.
Off to read in the hammock with the hub and then we start our fun night out!
