Saturday- 8 miles, 9:30 avg pace + lower body workout and stretching
I almost didn’t run yesterday and I’m so glad that I did. I was so tempted to stay in my warm bed and cuddle with the hubs and J. Luckily, I got my lazy self up and out into the cold. I was the crazy purple lady. I love purple, but I think it’s time I stop buying everything in purple…
I felt great most of the run until about mile 7 when I got so hungry. I had water with me and ate half a banana and peanut butter before I left, but I guess I should’ve brought something for an energy boost. Either way I’m so glad my legs feel good and that I was able to run comfortably under a 10 min mile. I have about a month until the Haunted Half and I’m feeling good. Oh and I got to pass Josh and I’s dream house. I LOVE this style.
After, I did my leg/tooshie workout. I love doing that on my long run days since my legs are already tired, and Sunday is always my rest day so I have a day of rest after. I did each exercise 3 times with an 8lb weight.
Nothing is better than coming home from a cold run to hot cocoa. I love when you take a sip and you can feel it go throughout your stomach and it instantly warms you up. (please forgive my man hands and admire my fall nail polish instead)
which brings me to my next random thought. I know most of you love your coffee makers, but come winter I’m in love with my cocoa motion. That’s right, there’s such a thing and I’m addicted. You can keep it on all day and it will keep it at the perfect temperature and mix it for you. Yummy cocoa ready at all times of the day? Yes, please.
After I cleaned my stinky self up, we took J to feed the ducks. There’s a pond close by and it’s always swarmed with ducks. J loved it and the ducks were ready to carry him and the bread off. Seriously, they flocked to us the minute we got out of the car.
I had a church meeting last night, after I had a dance party with the boys. I’ve mentioned Josh is a DJ, so we got serious and busted out some lights. J was in heaven.
Favorite cocoa flavor?
what do you bring to snack on for long runs? Candy, gels, powerade?
