Today’s weather was GORGEOUS! Close to 70 degrees and sunny.
I could not resist giving a run a try!!
But not without a stop to Harris Teeter for groceries and blister Band-Aids. (Also put on my thinnest socks! I think thick cotton socks are what caused this in the first place.)
I set off on a run with the intention of staying very close to my house. I did a figure 8 of about 3 miles so I was never more than 1.5 away.
The run was great!!
5.22 miles in a swift pace. I averaged about an 8:50 mile. (Mile 3 was all uphill – good practice for my hilly half!)
The good news is that my blister did fine!!! No pain at all.
In fact, the title of this post was going to be "three cheers for Band-Aid"
HOWEVER – when I took my shoe off after the run I noticed that the band-aid had SLIPPED (despite its claims for staying on through all sports and showers!) I would have been in trouble had I gone a few more miles. SO glad I decided to roll in at 5 and not 7 or 8.
BOO BAND-AID!! Going to try to return the box to Harris Teeter, which has a pretty good return policy.
Snacks this afternoon were my apple from lunch (never got around to eating him) and a PB&J LaraBar that JESSIE gave to me at the brunch last month!!!!!!!!!! Love the flavor, but it’s still not my very favorite 🙂
Due to the awesome spring weather…we grilled!!!
I picked up radicchio and asparagus at Harris Teeter to go with the very last of the Apple Lentil Walnut muffins. These lentil loaves were SO GOOD as leftovers, and as you can see, I got my effort’s worth out of them. Will definitely make them again!
Also grilled some tofu and carrot for my lunch tomorrow!! I just threw it in and am so glad I did because I have a killer salad for tomorrow!
The radicchio and asparagus just got a little olive oil and salt and pepper. More and more I just want to taste the flavorful veggies!
Wanted to have all my blog work done by 8 so I could veg on the couch (with laundry to fold!) but looks like I’m not going to make it to the TV tonight. We did finish The Office – so cute!
