Happy to announce that Sophie and I completed a 5K run this morning, and all parts (lungs, knee) felt pretty good.Â Itâ€™s been a rough week, fitness-wise, so Iâ€™m glad Iâ€™m getting back to my normal self.Â And not a moment too soon!
We took it easy, especially going up hills, because I definitely could feel myself getting winded.Â We finished 3.1 miles in about 35 minutes.Â Iâ€™m thrilled!
And then I SOMEHOW talked her into going for manicures and pedicures. 😉 It took a lot of convincing.Â Heh.Â Especially when I told her she could get free wine.
I stuck with magazines:
And a Vivanno smoothie from Starbucks.Â Starbucks actually makes great smoothies; all thatâ€™s in them are strawberries, banana, whey protein, and milk.
Check out uses for whey protein from Healthy Tipping Point sponsor Holland and Barret.
Plus, leftover Thai.Â In case youâ€™re curious, I described how to make the coconut milk sauce in more detail in Comment #56 of this post.Â It really is wonderful, especially the next day when the flavors have had a chance to mesh together.
In other newsâ€¦
The excitement builds! 🙂 Nothing quite like race anticipation.
