I woke up this morning really wanting to test out running. I took it outside and was nervous that I was going to have to stop again like on Monday but wanted to try it out anyways. 4 miles with no pain. I slowed down A LOT and I think that will help me be able to keep running longer throughout the pregnancy. I also think I will keep all of my runs under 6 miles because my previous Saturday long run made me way too sore.
Today was a little different because the second I got home I had to refuel with something very different than my usual post-run drink, I had to drink the orange stuff for the glucose test. You know you have a high sugar tolerance when the drink didn’t even bother you. I downed it in less than two minutes.
I don’t care how slow my pace is going to get over the next few months, those running endorphins are the same at any speed and I am feeling good.
Speaking of drinks….
We should all go out tomorrow morning and meet up for MTN Dew A.M. (aka Mountain Dew mixed with orange juice) and a few breakfast burritos and crunch wraps at Taco Bell. Who’s is going to meet me;) Clearly the best way to start your day.
The third drink that I wanted to talk about was Billy’s masterpiece from last night. We are both in love with orange juice and so the logical thing to do would be to start making Orange Julius every night this summer. The foam at the top is the best part.
He used THIS recipe and it really did taste like the real deal.
I have to share with you the best part of my month (actually year). My cutest friends Rene and Rylee from Texas sent me a package with everything my little girl is ever going to need. TOMS, Nike Tempos, an Under Armour top and candy letters (I have already eaten them) for Hungry Runner Baby.
I cried from happiness overload.
I slept with the Toms next to me last night…Billy was a little weirded out.
Anyone reading from Texas or ever lived in Texas? What part? Ever visited Texas?
What was the last thing that you drank? Do you think you could handle the Mountain Dew/Orange Juice combo?
-I know THIS GUY could.
Do you still get a runner’s high even when you do a super easy/way slower run than your usual runs?
What did you refuel with after your last workout?
