Yay we made it to Thursday!
This week was not too busy, but I always look forward to the weekend. 🙂
Yesterday I completed the first of my two scheduled runs of the week
The weather was quite warm, which made the experience a lot more enjoyable. It has been a while since I have run, so it took a while to get back into the groove. The fact that the first .5 miles of my route is a HUGE hill did not help my confidence. Chapel Hill is aptly named to say the least. I my mantra throughout the whole thing was alternately “you just have to make it up this hill” and “just one more big hill to go”. Lying to myself actually helped me a lot 😉 In the end, it wasn’t nearly as bad as I had imagined.
To reward myself for hitting the road, I feasted on this tropical deliciousness:
1 frozen banana
1/2 cup frozen mango and pineapple
1/2 cup of orange juice
1/2 cup water
2 handfuls of spinach
1 scoop protein powder
Blend up and enjoy. If you are not worried about sugar count, go ahead and use a whole cup of orange juice instead of just half.
