Caught in the act!
Beyond spying on the dogs, today was consumed with more (unsuccessful) office hunting, a little writing, and a whole lot of running.
I broke one of my Essential Rules of Running by attempting a longer run today. I try not to run back-to-back days but today was my third day on. Just really poor planning; tomorrow is definitely a swim day.
I ended up doing 8 miles with Nicole. The beginning was especially hard – I need to stop running in the evening and switch to morning runs because my energy is shot by 5 PM. But once we warmed up, it was all good. We finished the 8 miles in about 1:24.
We spent most of the run babbling about her upcoming NUPITALS! The big day is this weekend (if you’re slightly confused – yes, they did get married this summer; this is their ‘spiritual’ wedding). I absolutely cannot wait to see her in that big, white dress.
Pre-run, I named on a Clif bar. Yes – I finally wised up and stopped eating fiber-rich crackers and garlic-infused hummus. The Clif bar (after an hour wait) sat much better in my stomach.
Post-run applesauce – just to hold me over until dinner!
And dinner was cooked by the Hus – quinoa, beans, sweet potatoes, broccoli, and carrots, all drizzled in coconut milk. Creamy and fabulous.
And for dessert – Panda Puffs and cashews.
Gonna go stretch out these tired legs. Pigeon pose, here I come!
