Last week, Sammi emailed me to say she was in town and asked if I wanted to meet up for a run. Isn’t she cute? So smiley.
I was excited to run with Sammi today because I knew it would be (mentally) hard to run the day after my 10-miler. We did 5.65 miles together in about an hour. We took a few walk breaks. I think we were talking so much we were out of breath! That’s my last run until Sunday’s triathlon – I have bike rides planned for the next two days, and then it’s rest time.
Then, I had a conference call in my car on the drive home.
I tore into the house and made this lunch as quickly as possible. I was starving!
Annie gave me the idea for this AMAZING sandwich:
In between a whole wheat English muffin was a mix of almond butter, sunflower seeds, raisins, and shredded carrot.
I also had two slices of watermelon:
Chips and salsa:
And a Cherry Banana smoothie, which had 15 frozen cherries, a banana, and vanilla almond milk:
And for accountability’s sake, I tossed back a couple extra chips and a handful or two of sunflower seeds. 🙂
Totally random, but the Husband just sent me this video. It’s a rap song called “All I Do is Win” and I thought it was super sweet motivation for me to kick butt on my triathlon. I also thought it was really weird because my Husband is NOT the type of person to listen to rap music.
Then, around 3:06, I realized Snoop Dog flashes the University of Miami U and sings about the Hurricanes. So that’s why the Husband likes the song! :) I almost died laughing.
What is your “power song” that you use for extra motivation? I really like the Boondock Saints theme song.
