So far we’ve had the pleasure of enjoying mostly mid-80’s days which has been fabulous, but lately the temp has been rising into the low 90’s…that’s the hottest it’s been so far this year on our runs.
Today wasn’t too bad though. We decided on an out and back run which is 3.6 miles one way, so we took GU packs and water per our Fuel Belt to have a little pick-me-up at the half-way point.
I had to stop at a little over the two mile marker to have my GU Gel. The chocolate was really tasty…like a thicker version of chocolate pudding. I didn’t have lunch today and it sure caught up with me. Once I met up with Clark I drank my bottle of water and we walked for a ways. This little bit of rest was just what I needed. The GU Gel + water gave me the energy I needed and I was able to run another mile or so on the way back home.
Running in new @NikeRunning shoes was a plus, too. 😉
I also did a short video for you during our run. After watching this I had that ah-ha moment when you realize just how you sound in real life! Hello cuuuntry slang!
According to the Garmin, we walked/ran our way back totaling a little over seven miles!
I finished my evening with a chocolate protein shake (I’m currently loving the @GNC Amp Wheybolic Protein Powder!) and an egg/hummus and avocado sandwich.
Not bad for a Wednesday!
I hope you’re having a magnificent week so far! Let me know what you’re up to!
