…my alarm gets set for 5:30am so I can HOPE to be ready to leave for my run by 8 am…
…UnderArmor compression shorts are the best inventions ever. Old Navy running shorts are great for shorter runs but this morning, Hello Chafing and Riding Up!
…drinking coffee BEFORE going on a run is not the best idea. I will get 30 seconds from home and realize I REALLY need to pee
…hairspraying (yes, that is a verb) my head/sweat band in place is a good idea. (Trying to hold a water bottle in your mouth while adjusting your hair will just result in the spilling of your sticky water all over yourself and the side walk )
…Clif Shots rock. Not only do they work awesome! but they also make a Margarita flavor. I will be trying to find these today! Yes they are a bit processed but my stomach accepts them, they do not have gluten and they keep me from bonking – so… order me up a box!
…my 9 mile runs are jinxed. About 6 miles into my run this morning, it started pouring rain! Truth be told, I actually kind of like running in the rain but always worry about my iPod going berserk from getting wet… My last three attempts at a nine mile run have not gone very well so I am not at all surprised something random like a rainstorm occurred this morning! Ummm.. holy crap – 4 weeks weeks and I will be halfing!!
…this 9 mile run ROCKED! I finished in 1:26 minutes (9:35min/mile average) and that included two breaks, one to talk with the Sister as I passed her walking on the trail and another to talk with some random dude on a bike who wanted to know how much longer the running path would go. I told him to Port Washington (20ish miles) so he was probably good to keep going that way
…you don’t want me making you a recovery smoothie. This is probably the grossest color to come out of the little beast. But might I also add, there are zero flecks of spinach in this. Impressive. And it tasted 10x better than it looked.
…breakfast is still my favorite meal of the day. And especially THIS breakfast. French toast oats by Edible Perspective, topped with my new favorite gluten free granola, hemp seeds, cacao nips and almond butter.
Ok, the neighbors are starting to complain about the smell coming from this girl. Time for a Shower! And then I think some furniture shopping for maybe a new couch, some random something from Kohl’s with a $10 card that expires today and maybe a medicine ball from the sporting goods store with a $10 bucks back reward! Oh yeah, and I need to get the wee little pup some more food and cut his hair finally! Saturday’s never fail to go too fast!!
