Is it super hot where you are?
I thought I was going to meeelt while we detailed our car. Watermelon helps! Did you know watermelon is over 92% water? That’s why it’s so thirst-quenching.
After some serious conference calling, I went on a run.
I was running blind because my Garmin 305 died in the first five minutes. I highly recommend all technology-addicted runners go without their Garmins and iPods every now and then… it’s very freeing not to think about time, distance, or pace. And it’s quite relaxing, too!
I ran 1.5 miles to a park, met up with my friend Kate, walked 1.0 miles with Kate around the park, said goodbye, ran 1.5 miles back to the house, picked up the Husband, and ran 2.5 miles together.
So, I ran 5.5 but did 6.5 with the walk break.
Really random but it was exactly what I was craving.
I drank a strawberry-banana-rice milk smoothie with two scoops of this protein powder (which is pretty good):
And two dippy eggs with Honey Whole Wheat:
Obviously, this wasn’t enough food to fuel me through 12.0-miles in the last two days. I did a quick calorie count per my rules for fueling for long runs and realized my intake was low for my activity level. I’ve been feeling really stressed and anxious (my book drops in FIVE DAYS, can you blame me?), and it’s impacting my appetite. So, I went back for some cereal. Fueling properly keeps you healthy and helps you run faster and longer!
With a full, happy belly and a relaxed mind, it’s time for me to hit the hay. Must… get… 8 hours! 🙂
