Up and at ‘em at 6:26 this morning to get ready for a run with Sarah!
I snacked on a banana + freshly opened MaraNatha AB and got the Garmin all set up
Sarah + Josh arrived right on time and I took them to the Greenway for a cool refreshing sprint! Sarah is FAST and we knew we’d be pushing our pace to the max running together with my latest focus on speeding up.
52:54 minutes and 6.2 miles later….
- 8:23 (!!)
- 8:26 (<— obviously my favorite mile)
- 8:46 (I started to get pretty tired in the stomach/chest at this point)
This was definitely my fastest run ever. (Excluding sprint 5K’s). But the Greenway is pretty flat. I was huffing and puffing the whole run – in a good way! It’s nice to be out of breath again and my body has that wonderful tired feeling after a long run. Go Sarah!
Once home, it was time for a big debut. The first pumpkin oats of the season. I’ve had this can since last winter but honestly had NO TASTE for pumpkin all summer!
- 1/3 cup oats, milk, water, pinch salt
- 1/3 cup Daisy Cottage Cheese
- 1/3 cup pumpkin
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 2 chopped dates
- Tons of cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and vanilla
- OhNuts.com toasted pumpkin seeds from the Summit Swag bag
- Drizzle maple syrup
- Pumpkin Seed butter
Stirring in the pumpkin + cottage cheese at the end -
On the coffee front I tried a new Sea Island Coffee: Jamaica High Mountain Baron Hall Estate. It was awesome!
I can’t believe the time again!! And it totally feels like a Saturday. I am SO excited about the next few days – gorgeous weather, NO TESTS, lots of assignments to get checked off my list I’m going to make that Gmail video soon too!
We’re meeting Sarah + Josh for lunch and then I have class tonight, so I better get going!
