Heeeey Everybody. How’s your Friday going? Mine’s spectacular – and I’m keeping my promise and enjoying every last bit o’ July.
My friend, Missy, asked me if I wanted to go for a run after work (she works halfies too on Friday,) so we met up around 2:00. Not the smartest time to go on a run in July, I know, but we were smart about it – we dressed for the heat and took it slow. I was planning on doing a light strength-training and elliptical workout before she called, but what they hey, I’m always up for a partner run.
On my way home from work, I stopped and picked up a new running hat from Dick’s, because my navy blue Cubs hat was just way too hot. I ended up getting an Under Amor one.
What do ya think?
Whenever I get new workout items, it always makes me want to work out. Does it have that power over you, too?
It worked really well! Kept me cool and a heck of a lot dryer.
Since it was super hot (although b-e-a-utiful,) we took it easy. I think we did about 4.5 miles in about 45 minutes. My heart rate didn’t even make it into the 170′s the whole time. And I burned roughly 444 calories.
I didn’t want to down a big lunch before the run, so I just munched on a Kashi TLC bar and some mango about an hour prior:
We didn’t get back from the run until about 2:45 and it was already 3:00 by the time I ate lunch. I know I’m going out for dinner tonight, but I said screw it, I needs me some FOOD. After downing a coconut water, I
fired up the grill plugged in the George Foreman, and grilled up a whole wheat pita with tuna, hummus, avocado, tomatoes, and sunflower seeds.
I know that’s a hodge podge of ingredients, but it was awesome!! I wanted MOAR. But I knew I’d be eating dinner at 6:00 (hopefully I’m hungry by then) so I just setteled on one of these.
I’m not sure where we’re going for dinner tonight. It might be Indian or it might be a local pub called, “Scooners.” We shall see.
Now it’s time to get my sweaty butt into the shower, but before I do that, I wanted to leave you with a Green Monster pic!
What went into the GM:
What came out:
I’m not sure why it’s that color. Usually when I add a kiwi, it gets somewhat of a bright green to it, but this look straight up from the bottom of a lake! I think this is by far my uuugliest colored Green Monster. Sometimes it’s fun to drink something that looks like it tastes like arse, but really tastes like heaven! Dontcha think?
