I’ve taken a hiatus with running the past week. I ran Monday and that was it. I was afraid of my shin splints, time was an issue and I just didn’t run. Not good for marathon training. I need to keep up my weekly mileage as much as possible to keep my body ready to run!
This morning I was able to fit in my long run. I missed my VAVI run yesterday since I was volunteering and I was left to run alone! 16 miles by myself..
I broke the run up into 4 mile segments to try to make it seem less daunting. I think it worked out great as I was counting down the miles from 4 instead of 16! It was also good because I don’t have a water belt so I needed to get water at some point. I ran 4 miles in both directions from my house. At the first turn around (4 miles) I stopped to get Advil and coconut water at 7-11. I felt I was going to need that Advil later on. Mile 8 I was back at my house for some water and a Clif gel. I continued the other direction for 4 miles and then turned around and came back. The second half was rough because I had no fuel or water for 8 miles. That was not a good idea.. next time I’ll have to find a better plan going that direction. I inhaled 2 more coconut waters once I got home as I sat on my porch sidewalk and didn’t want to move.
What a run.. all completed by 10am on a beautiful sunny day in San Diego.
After showering, we went to the beach! We picked up some breakfast/lunch on the way. I got an Acai Bowl from Mozy Cafe.. soo refreshing =) I studied while burning myself Oops.. it was amazing!
Can’t wait for summer!
I picked up two jars & have only half of one left! It is really good and not too sweet at all which I love. I decided to make those same cookies with this peanut butter instead of regular.
What a great idea this was.
First combine 1 cup peanut butter, 1 cup sugar & 1 egg.
I also added a handful of chocolate chips for fun.
Using a fork press down into cookie form.
Bake until cooked and ready to be eaten!
Try out this peanut butter and then make these cookies!
