I am very happy today. :) It positively feels like spring outside. It’s SUNNY and WARM – in fact, it’s 61 degrees. We haven’t had a day like this in… months. I hope it lasts!
Snagged a shot of my sunshine pups after their walk:
Today, I did a really fast (for me) training run of 5.0 miles in 47:30. A couple days ago, I complained about painful DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) as I ramp up training for my Half Marathon. A bunch of people agreed that I needed to 1) stretch more and 2) focus on eating protein after hard workouts.
When I got back, I stretched for 15 minutes and made this amazing protein smoothie:
In the mix:
- Silk almond milk
- 1 large banana
- Bunch of frozen strawberries
- 1.5 tablespoons almond butter
- 2 scoops vanilla rice protein powder
It hit the spot! I also had some toast:
I ate a very late lunch around 3. I made a HUGE batch of this mix so we can eat extra throughout the week. In the mix: raw spinach, wild rice, canned chickpeas, tomatoes, and celery with balsamic.
I’m loving the salad-dressing-and-rice combo lately!
I’m headed back outside to enjoy the day… Is it sunny where you are, too?
