Remember the Tempo
Today’s one of those days where I don’t have to be up at any certain time (well, before 7 at least) and I woke up at 5:15 this morning just staring at the ceiling and willing myself to sleep. After lying there unable to emerge from the comfy bed for a good hour, I finally peeled myself from the sheets.
Might as well start the day if I’m awake anyway! I have a feeling I’ll be experiencing a mid afternoon slump…I’ll let you know how that prediction turns out My early morning wake up combined with some late night reading isn’t a good recipe for a restful day…
But it is a good recipe for starting a delicious new book! Yesterday I finished The Paris Wife, which I couldn’t put down, and started Fifty Shades of Grey, which I think will lead to the same condition. I’ll let you guys know how it goes!
Although it probably won’t help my sleepiness, I’m also planning on getting in a treadmill workout after pressing publish on this post. I might regret it come 3:00 when I’m zonked, but I have a couple reasons for wanting to get in an intense run this morning:
A) I have the time. I can rarely say I have plenty of time.
B) I really want to do a tempo run. I randomly clicked on this post yesterday, and it reminded me of how much I used to love them. Here’s the one I’m planning on doing:
Remember how I threw my other amino acid powder in the garbage after discovering it contained this ingredient? Well, the new one I ordered from iHerb (with a $5 discount!) arrived, and I haven’t tasted it yet, but so far, so good.
For one thing, the powder is white – not blue raspberry colored:
yay for no artificial coloring!
and b) there’s none of that scary potentially carcinogenic crap in it.
The only thing is, is that it’s 35 calories per serving (I only do half a serving though) and the other was like zero. But really, 35 calories? OH WELL. Right? Apparently I can’t read before drinking coffee. As a couple of you pointed out, it has 35 servings, not 35 calories. Oops!
On that note, I’m off to tempo it up before starting my day Another l-o-n-g one for me, but then I get a 4-day weekend! Woop woop!
Have a happy Wednesday, lovas!
What book are you reading right now?
