So my goal was to run Monday morning – the boys were all off and got to stay home so I only had myself to get ready- so might as well use the free time at 4:45am!!
I headed out the door to the loop by my house…I am not joking when I say it is located right behind a donut shop…who does that????
I struggled a bit last week to run the hilly 2 miles straight…this week I am going to improve as much as I can. I did the 2 miles in 22:03, with one little 30 second walking break. That means I cut my time and increased my ability to run it without more than one little speed walk break 🙂 PLEASE, let me NEVER go running at 5am, when it is humid, with no water. I thought I was going to start spitting sand my mouth was so dry. The point that I walked was leading to the down-hill part, I just COULD NOT breath without feeling like I had a blow dryer in my mouth (I made sure to get Eric to assemble my new Camel Pak so I don’t have this issue again)!
It was really weird running, in the dark, on a weekday morning, then not having to get the Youngin’ ready…pretty relaxing!! A taste of what is to come when I get to Germany, perhaps!! I had my amazing Mahi Mahi with guacamole for lunch…it was so good even the second day around!! The hub made a Cornish hen for dinner…had some kick to it, but was so delicious! I am a girl who loves chicken!!! I made up another batch of Tofu pudding, and then made some more Fudgie Friends- I made them into bars this time, and added PB2 powder…..SO GOOD!!!!! I could eat the whole batch in one sitting!!
I felt like I was being lazy since I did not exercise at night, it threw me for a bit of a loop! Tomorrow is double up Tuesday (Shred and Yoga Meltdown) it is rough at the time, but feels SO good afterwards!! I am already looking forward to my yummy date bars, new flava tofu pudding (coconut, chocolate peanut), and perhaps a peanut flour + Chia Seeds purchase…I addicted to buying pantry items on-line 😉
What are your ‘always need to have on hand’ flavors? Do you have one item every single day and never tire of it? Mine are: tofu pudding, fudgie friends, and apples!
