Workout: 3.7 miles
I didn't run Friday, Saturday or Sunday. I just decided my body & maybe my mind needed the break since I struggled so much last week.
I woke up this morning ready to hit the pavement....and so were my dogs. As I was lacing up my shoes, they both sat at my feet, wagging their tails...like they just knew they were going to go with me. So I grabbed their leashes and off we went.
We looped back to the house after 1 mile, where I dropped them off to go out on my own.
I wish I had re-set my GPS since that first mile was a 13 min mile. By the time I finished, I averaged 11:02. I spent a lot of time trying to make up for that initial slow mile! Most of the time, when I looked down to check, I was running a sub 10:00 mile....usually closer to 9:30-40. So while my overall pace wasn't great, I know for the miles I ran alone, I did push myself more than I did last week....and it felt good.
On a different note, for those of you who drink my current FAVORITE breakfast (click here for recipe), then you may want to try a couple of things to make it even better!
1. I've been adding 2-3 cubes of ice to it to make it colder. This is a pretty simple concept, but I'm loving drinking this really cold! My blender, on the other hand, isn't a huge fan of the ice. I really really really want a good blender....maybe one of these. I hear they're pretty good.
2. The other "change" I've made to this recipe is I've been adding cinnammon. It's SO YUMMY! My 3 year old has been devouring them since I've made this change!
Do you have a nice blender you could recommend?
I just have like a $25-35 cheap one from Target....and with daily use, it would sure be nice to have a high powered one!
