From this in 2005…
10 miles, yo!!!!!
Our run was awesome!!! Not only did we have perrrrfect running weather (no ganache, ice, snow or rain on the trail today!!) but we held a steady pace the whole time. I even sprinted the last mile in and finished it in 8:35! We ran the whole shebang in 1 hour 29 minutes. I’m on target for my sub-2 hour half goal.
Emily + Casey made some of their homemade sport drink and we put it at the 2.25 mile marker so we could drink at 2 and 8 miles. I swear it gave me the boost to pick it up on mile 10! I am really, really liking running longer distances! It’s funny because if you weren’t “training for something” then why would anyone ever want to run 10+ miles? I find it fun, challenging and more of an event in a totally different way than any other workout. I guess the term would be an “endurance athlete.” Not that I’d ever want to run real long distances, but 10 miles is pretty long! You know what I mean
Since I was homeless, after our run I went with Emily and Casey back to their house for a recovery lunch. My legs were quite shaky! I can’t even imagine how wacked out my body would feel after a marathon.
Split THREE ways:
- 1.5 bananas
- 1 packet Amazing Meal Pomegranate Mango
- 1 packet Amazing Meal Plain
- 1 big handful spinach
- 3 tbsp flax
- 1.5 cups almond milk
- 1 cup cantaloupe
Topping: crushed PB granola bar!
I think we covered all the food groups here!?
Emily let me taste this new drink from Trader Joes. It tasted like milk! However, there was barely any protein at all, so I’m not sure I’d buy it since I use milk as a protein source. I also got to try the SILK Almond Milk and LOVED that. Great sweet taste!!! Still much lower in protein than soy milk or organic cow’s milk, but a great new alternative.
She also let me try some of Dave’s Killer Sin Dawg!!
Totally, totally delicious!!!!! But very, very calorie dense. This tiny piece was probably 2 servings! I had about a 1-inch slice of this one.
Hair cut! Wish I could have gotten my photograph when it was blown-out and fresh, but I didn’t have anyone to take my photo! I had to wait till Matt got home and it’s now dark
I requested it to be cut “modern and sleek” She did a great job blending!
I haven’t really been hungry all day, but I’ve been sooo thirsty! Emily and I drank some during our run but not enough. We also ran with her water bottle and I decided I do NOT want something hand-held. Need to investigate the camelbak tomorrow while I’m out.
I went to EarthFare after my hair cut and splurged on this guy because I was out of water and very thirsty!!! I decided that kombucha is like salt and vinegar potato chips: the flavor concept is quite strange, but something just kind of works about it. Same with this stuff – it’s weird, and vinegary, but also good!
Home at 6:30. Soo many leftovers!
Matt made me try this beer that Conor made. I couldn’t even concentrate on it and handed it back to him. My body does NOT want beer right now! I think he was quite surprised at my reaction because this was my kinda beer! (Dark + roasty). I’ll have to try it again soon.
What did my body want for dinner? I was totally craving veggies. Since our kitchen is on a no-cook restriction tonight [inbetween open houses], we made big salads!
I took my leftovers from Big Daddy’s and combined them with romaine and chopped bell peppers. Added 3 In A Jiffy burger balls and some of my leftover orange dressing.
Carrots + Curry Honey Hummus on the side because I wanted to appreciate them as a separate flavor.
Magic Hat tainted with water! Muahahahahah.
I’m off to bed!
WHY, do you ask, am I off to bed at 8:45 on a Saturday night?
Because somebody has a 6:45AM flight to NAPA VALLEY.
And that somebody is not me!
Matt is going to the Great Harvest Convention! And I will be going to my dietetic internship 😥 I SO wish I could go. You don’t even want to hear the itinerary of how many fun events he has planned.
I’m taking him to the airport at 5:30 tomorrow morning. Then I’m either having breakfast or taking a nap when I get home. Then going to 9:15 yoga to stretch out my muscles. Then open house round II!
