Week #2 of training has officially started! I LOVE getting in my workout before noon. It just opens my whole day up.
I also love that I went running with the intention to not waste any time on laundry so it wouldn't turn into a Chandler-esque LAUNDRY ALL NIGHT - ALL NIGHT LAUNDRY! (I've been watching a lot of Friends recently, don't judge) and lo and behold, when I got back, the clothes were still turning in the washer! Yesss!! Now my sweaty self gets to handle freshly cleaned clothes. ...I may not have thought this all the way through.
Sorry I wore two different but very similar shades of green (you can see it peeking out in the picture above) - usually my sports bra and shirt color are much more coordinated. But it's laundry day! On top of that, blue sunglasses... and blue sneakers. Some days I just don't have it together, y'all.
Pre-workout fuel: My standard -
- 1 cup 0% Fage Greek Yogurt
- 4 Cinnamon Sugar Belvita Breakfast Biscuits
- 1 80g banana
- 60g Oatmeal
|73 degrees felt nice, but in the sun it was waaaay too hot.|
This was a decidedly easy run - even though that first 8'25'' does NOT look it. Most of the beginning was downhill, and I've said before that I have a big problem with starting out way too fast. I'm working on it! Also, the portion of the road that I was trying out ended up not having sidewalks on it, PLUS it was uphill, so I was silently cursing my planning.
|Sooooo hot - but I did it!|
Post-workout: I drank this Lucerne "protein fortified dairy beverage" that has like 20g of protein. Granted, it also has 44g of SUGAR (yikes), but I mean, after running is the best time to drink this type of stuff anyways, right?? So there.
This is my last run in Washington, because on Wednesday we're going to NYC!! I plan to run in Central Park while I'm there, hopefully it won't be too terribly hot! But that's okay, since I'm from Texas, I can withstand the heat... right?
|Can't wait to run in Central Park!|
Do you have a favorite POST-workout meal?
