The best alarm clock award goes to: Little girl in my stomach. At 6:40 this morning she started going crazy and doing flips and ninja kicks and so there was no way I was going to be able to sleep. It is a good thing because otherwise I would have slept until 11 and instead I went on a run nice and early.
I set out not knowing how far I wanted to go but wanted to just go for as long as I felt good. I only have one more day to run here in ‘easy to breathe/perfect temperature/gorgeous scenery, California’ and decided to take advantage of it and ran 10.3 miles.
I got back, put on my pj’s (don’t worry, I took a 2 minute shower first) and made a big bowl of oatmeal (2 packets of oatmeal, banana, raisins and an apple) to eat next to Billy on the couch. He is actually drinking my oatmeal covering milk but I didn’t get mad at him because he agreed to be in a self-portrait with me. Don’t ask what would have happened if he had said no to the picture.
A few hours later it was time for our nature walk.
Don’t tell Curly because she might get really jealous but we found another adorable 3 year old to hang out with while we are here.
I bet you could have guessed what I packed for lunch.
And animal crackers for some extra protein.
Billy and I did some yoga while we were out because I am pretty sure that is a requirement to take a yoga picture when you are in nature.
I am officially exhausted (Billy’s goal is to get all of my energy out so I take a nap, just like parents do for their little kids) and will be falling asleep in seconds.
Do you usually go out for your run knowing exactly how far you want to run or do you ever just go and figure out the distance you want to go after you’ve already been running for a while?
