Happy Saturday, friends! I have plans to head out this evening and figured it would be better to get my long run in now, instead of trying to fight the er… tiredness I might be feeling tomorrow. It took me a bit to get out of bed, and I was debating waiting until it got warmer, but he who hesitates is lost and I got my bum out the front door.
The goal was to average 10:44, but I swear I felt like I was running much slower than that. I figured whatever feels natural and not too hard for the long runs is fine, even if it’s a little faster than the training plan calls for. After the five miles, I whipped up a protein smoothie to help my muscles recover.
In it went:
- 9 med frozen strawberries
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 1 container Yoplait Greek Honey yogurt
- 1 cup of skim milk
- 2 ice cubes
I’ve got a few errands to run before heading out to my friend’s house to have dinner then celebrate her 30th birthday dancing the night away in Philly. We’re not sure where we’ll end up yet, but it’s been a while since I have been out dancing and I am SO excited. Lots to do, not that I have much help…
Such lazy kitties. Enjoy your weekend!
