Last night, Joe hung his outfit for today on our tall lamp in the bedroom. At around 5:30 this morning, we woke up to a huge “crash” noise. We were both so confused until we realized that the clothes must have been too heavy and they pulled down the lamp, smashing the light bulb (ironically, right in the garbage can, so no clean up!). After that, it was impossible to get back to sleep. We pretty much laid in bed awake until 6:30 rolled around decided to just get up and get to the gym.
The love-hate relationship I have with running is swaying towards the love side this week. After my 3 miler yesterday, I was feeling a longer run today.
My run looked like this:
- 2 minute warm up @ 3.5mph
- 1.5 miles: steady 6.0-6.3mph
- 2 miles: .25 miles @ 8.0mph with 2 minute rest (6.3mph) in between, repeat 4x
- .5 mile: 6.5mph
- 1 mile: 7.0mph
After I hit 5 miles, I walked at 3.0mph for about 5 minutes to cool down.
I was famished when I got home so my smoothie went un-photographed, but breakfast number two, 2 hours later, was even better!
In a bowl, I mixed 1/4 cup oats, 1 whole egg, 1/2 scoop SunWarrior protein powder, a few drops of coconut milk, one stevia packet, a dash of cinnamon, baking powder, & blueberries. I cooked the pancake on a non-stick pan on each side for about 2 minutes. Toppings included strawberries muddled with agave nectar and a scoop of almond butter.
Very peanut butter & jelly-ish. Plus, I’ve expressed my love for warm bloobs before.
Well, I’m off to get ready for an event I am working in the city tonight.
