Well, I was on Inside Edition for a total of .04 seconds yesterday:) They probably thought my voice was too high for tv audiences to even be able to hear….I will forgive them but it might take a little bit of time for me to heal.
Yesterday after work I came home and said I was going to just lay down for 5 minutes and then get my running gear on. 5 minutes turned into an hour and next thing I knew it I woke up and Billy was sitting on the floor (we only have one couch) working on homework.
We hung out for a little while waiting for it to cool down outside and finally left at about 6. There was a storm rolling in and so the weather was absolutely perfect, a little windy and a tiny bit cold…1st sign it was going to be a great run.
Billy did his warm-up mile with me and then did 6 tempo miles @ 6:34 pace. After finishing that up he sat and waited for me (we did an out and back route) to do his last cool-down mile with me. I did a total of 8 miles too at an 8:29 average pace and boy did I need this run. My body felt great, I was super optimistic the whole time and you know that I love getting a few miles in with my tank top wearing man.
I wish I could say that we have books and boxes all over the place because we started packing but really we are just lazy. PS I am in fact wearing shorts even though the above picture begs to differ.
Random note about the run: Billy always comes home and tells me about a spot along the path where birds swoop down as he runs by and get pretty close to him. I have never believed him until last night when I experienced the diving birds and they scared the heck out of me.
Remember how I complain every 3 days about chaffing? Champion sent me these two sports bras and I am sure these are a huge reason why my run was so great. I still had to wear both at the same time (hey, that is a lot better than 3) and I couldn’t believe how comfortable they were. No chaffing, hallelujah. I know I say I love a lot of things but really these were amazing and I can’t wait to wash them so I can run in them again.
After our run we stretched for 15 whole minutes, Billy is a good example for me, I showered and got dinner together. Turkey/bagel sandwich, fruit, a hard-boiled egg and pretzels.
For dessert I made a special treat.
Janae’s Nightly Craving Trail Mix Recipe:
1 cup marshmallows
1 cup butterscotch chips.
Mix and don’t share.
Favorite trail mix ingredients…..what must a good trail mix include? When picking through trail mix (we all do it, don’t be embarrassed) what ingredients do you leave in there for someone else to eat because it isn’t your favorite?
On your daily runs do you do more loop routes or out and back routes?
Do you wash your sports bras after each workout?
-Running=yes. Elliptical (unless I go hardcore), yoga and weights= no…come on we don’t even have a washer and dryer.
Would you rather have a bagel or thick/dense bread?
-I will always choose a bagel.
