Today’s a great day already because it’s the first time I’ve run outside on a week day since October 6th! (I totally had to go back and look at past posts to find that out because it’s been so long.)
I did have a steady state treadmill run planned for today’s workout, but shortly after waking up, I checked the temps and saw that it was in the mid thirties. While normally I would have gone to the treadmill, it seemed plain unbearable to do another treadmill workout today. So, outside I went!
I ended up running 4.2 miles in a little less than 40 minutes, then came inside, grabbed Niko, and cooled down by walking for another 20 minutes.
Another bonus about outdoor runs? No commuting to and from the gym! Without the extra few minutes usually spent on gym commute, I had extra time to really enjoy breakfast this morning.
And I realllly enjoyed my fluffy protein pancakes
By the way, I think I’m the only one who didn’t know it was National Pancake Day the other day. Of course, National Pancake Day was about the only day I didn’t have pancakes for breakfast this week
In fact, I usually miss out on all national food holidays – even ones that I usually eat every day. I guess I’m the type of person to seriously let my cravings and appetite decide on what I’ll eat for the day. I’ll just say I celebrate every day Today just so happened to be pancakes and bananas!
Another reason for celebration…happy March!! I don’t know about you, but I think March is pretty much the best month ever. Perhaps it has something to do with a certain someone’s golden birthday falling this month, but that’s just hearsay
Have a great day, all.
Do you celebrate (or even know about) national food holidays?
