Thank goodness for a relaxing weekend! I was able to stay up late Friday night (for once!) and sleep in Saturday…yep, 6am was a great wakeup time! Anyhow, I had plans for a long run today and got up with the swak of a cat paw to my face, a 1/2 a sandwich thin with pb and an apple.
The run was not ideal, but I think I’m just trying to get back into the groove from all the work and well, my funk. I was good for about the first three miles but then my legs felt like the heaviest lead on the planet. Alas, I finished the 7.06 mile run in 1:05 and was glad to be done!
Clean and done drinking lots of water, I made a protein smoothie with cheerios mixed in, and a sticker I got at the SD Expo in the window. Yep, I run with it.
I lefts to pick up my produce box and bam more green beans and potatoes! I’m pretty tired of them…though am excited about those squashes and mini eggplant!
I actually ate a nectarine before I left with my roomie into the major city down the mountain. We didn’t realize how late it was and went straight to TJ’s to get some lunch! I got my favorite spinach salad along with some sesame pita chips for a little crunch.
We went and saw Bad Teacher to get out of the stink’n heat of the valley (over 100*) and finished up with a visit to my favorite fro yo place who just by chance, was serving a fro-yo style sorbet!!! That means I actually got to have some! I don’t know if I’ve made this clear, but I’ve eliminated all dairy from my diet, including things like caisin that might be found in some vegetarian cheeses. Alas, I got to try three different flavors: watermelon, raspberry pomegranate and orange!
Sooooooo good!!! We hit up Target, that took everything from me that I own, along with TJ’s for groceries and then home. I wasn’t actually feeling good all day because I had a nasty headache that lingered after the run. I drank a significant amount of water after the run but the damage had already been done…lets put it this way, it’s 10pm and I still have a headache, enough that my eyes hurt pretty badly, like a sinus infection.
I snacked on another handful of those pita chips on the ride home and then tried to relax. The headache got worse throughout the evening and I thought I might have been hungry (my stomach wasn’t growling though, too confusing) so since I didn’t feel like much and was hot, I had another smoothie. It was like this morning, except I didn’t use protein powder and instead a glob of pb. Just what I needed…
I snacked on some watermelon while cutting it up along with a 1/2 a pack of dried mango. I wasn’t really hungry but thought the food might help my head…to no avail. Hopefully sleep will do it some good tonight…if I ever get to bed.
