How will I ever say no to those eyeballs?
My coach told me yesterday that I needed to get real fuel for my 20 miler today!? I guess Swedish Fish are not the ‘ideal’ running fuel (I disagree. They taste delicious) so Paige and I went to Target just to get Shot Bloks (strawberry flavor, hopefully they taste like Swedish Fish).
Since it isn’t humanly possible to go to that store without buying some form of candy and clothes for Brooke, I came out with a few more things.
After Target Paige and I had an intense discussion over whether we should go for hot chocolate or go to Red Mango. The freezing temps do not stop us from eating the good stuff. Next time we will just have to get hot chocolate afterwards to warm us up after eating ice cream. PS the pumpkin spice flavor with graham cracker and chocolate chips is the best.
This is THE Paige. We have known each other since we were 11. She is one in a million. We are together a lot and I like it.
Starting next week I am going to stop eating out. Okay, that’s a lie because I really love it and it is my favorite way to socialize. Maybe I will just cut down a little…I’ll need your help.
Experts say that pasta and sweet potato fries are the best things to eat the night before a long run. I am determined to prove this theory to be correct.
This amazing girl and I met in a spin class about 7 years ago and she is back in town for a little while so we were reunited. We probably took 3-4 spin classes a week together for a few years. It was the best.
Our kids were extremely happy to be there. I need to wash my bangs.
I ended the night with a good book in bed at nine o’clock. I like to end my nights like that.
20 miles to get in today. I talked Rachelle into doing the last 12 with me which I am very excited about. I don’t know if I could do a long run by myself anymore. Do your long runs with people. Combining endorphins + hours of talking with friends = a winning combination and you are done before you know it.
What type of fuel having you been using for your long runs lately?
Who has been to spin classes? How often? True feelings about spin?
Do you prefer long runs with people or by yourself?
Favorite pasta sauce?
