It is amazing how the filter on the iPhone can make it look like I actually have a calf muscle. Technology these days is quite advanced.
Hit up the treadmill this morning so that I could run whatever my body felt like doing and stop when it told me to stop. I lucked out and felt really awesome so I did 10 miles @ an 8:12 average.
My good friend Jess met me there and we ran side by side, I am glad my friends think that meeting before dawn to sweat together is the best type of social activity.
SUMMER RUNNING CLOTHES!!! FINALLY!!! I will not be missing wearing 4,000 layers and gloves and falling on the ice when I am out running.
The shorts—> I LOVE the thick waistband.. why don’t all shorts have a thick waistband to avoid cutting into us? They are super lightweight, there is a great zipper pocket (for me to put my Salted Caramel Gu that I am now obsessed with). I love the stretch fabric that they are made with and the little pattern thrown in on the sides.
The top—> This will be awesome to use when running in the summer heat (or the 140 degree gym like this morning)… super breathable, soft and light. I also love the cute pattern in the fabric on the back.
It’s sad how happy it made me that I got a front row parking spot to the gym… heaven forbid I walk a few extra feet to get inside to go run on a treadmill.
Came home and made some wooden cookies.
Brooke then experienced her first ever green smoothie… She loved it.
The smoothie was delicious but the real winner was this glazed poppyseed bread. If you need some delicious bread in your life, this is the one to make.
I also got time with my college roommate/partner in crime/soul sister and Brooke’s future boyfriend.
Try them out! I really like running and I really don’t like injuries so I am making these exercises a priority in my training.
Any runners reading that have NEVER had a running-related injury? Share your secrets with us please?
Who is injured right now? With what?
Favorite type of running shorts?
What are you craving for dinner tonight?
