Hello! I can’t believe I haven’t posted in a whole week! I have been VERY busy at work chaperoning 9 middle school girls on day trips every day… and I get to do it all again this coming week. Its hectic and a little stressful, but the days fly by and I’m out and moving around instead of being stuck in my office, which is always great.
Wednesday was a rough day, so I could not wait to come home and go for a RUN. It was still in the mid-upper 80s when I got home, so I put on my new Bondi Band! I ordered two of these bands from Callie at Wannabe Athlete. $5 of each band goes to her aunt’s radiation treatments, which is a GREAT cause! I may order two more 😉
My band says “Cancer Sucks”. Because lets face it, it does.
This run was the first time I ran with a Bondi Band, the first time I’ve run in a sports bra sans shirt, and the first time I’ve run with Grooveshark working properly on my phone!
The Bondi Band was GREAT. I didn’t realize how much sweat it was keeping off of my face until I moved it a little during my run and could feel it under there. I guess I didn’t realize just how much I sweat from my head when I run!
Running with no shirt was also GREAT. I don’t know if I’d be brave enough to do this in a race just yet. But in my little neighborhood, it was awesome. Very freeing! And I was SO much cooler. Definitely will be doing it again before the end of the summer!
I ran 3.35 miles in 34:24. That’s a 10:16 pace. Not great… but not awful, either. Especially with the heat! I’m encouraged for my next 5K on the 10th 😉
When I got home I needed a big ol’ Green Monster. But I put a ton of stuff in and I knew it wouldn’t fit in my normal pint glass… so I put it in a BIG wine glass
- 2 cups spinach
- 1/2 banana
- 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
- 1 handful blueberries
- almond milk
- ice cubes
This was my first time drinking a Green Monstah out of anything but a pint glass and I think it may become a new thing. I can fit more in that goblet AND I feel sassy while drinking it. Woohoo!
