I hope you’re having a fantastic (ahem, fANNEtastic) day so far. We have gorgeous weather here today — finally, the humidity has left us! At least for now :)
My friend Elle and I celebrated with an early morning run. We’re proud of ourselves — this is our third week in a row that we’ve met for Thursday a.m. runs! I love them — a good workout AND some fun social time combined :)
This is how we really felt this morning, though:
As always though, once we started moving I woke right up! I actually felt great this morning — best run I’ve had in awhile, probably due to the lack of heat/humidity! It was so nice and cool.
We did our standard super hilly loop — 4.34 miles in 40:16, average pace: 9:17.
- Mile 1: 9:07
- Mile 2: 9:47 (hill of death, part 1)
- Mile 3: 9:34 (hill of death, part 2)
- Mile 4: 8:57
- 0.34 mile nubbin: 8:27 pace
Awesome run! That was the first time in awhile I haven’t felt like I was going to die on the hill of death. Hooray!
Post-run stretching and water drinking:
It’s so awesome being done with your workout by 7:30 a.m. :)
After our run, I raced home, showered, had breakfast, and was back out the door for class, followed by a biochem quiz. I finished the quiz at lunch time and desperately needed to hit the grocery store, but knew that going grocery shopping on an empty stomach would be an epic fail, so I treated myself to lunch at the co-op grocery store salad bar first :)
Yum! I LOVE their salad bar — it’s so good. I always get the most random assortment of stuff, as you can see, heh.
Once the hungry beast was tamed, I was able to grocery shop without purchasing everything in sight because I was so hungry! I mostly picked up some breakfast and snack stuff because Matt and I are headed out of town tomorrow morning for a wedding. Just needed enough to tide us over :) I clearly can’t survive without fruit, milk, and spinach (for smoothies!).
I broke into those strawberries right when I got home as a post-lunch sweet treat. Delicious!
Time to get back down to work — I have two assignments due tomorrow and a blog conference call later today, too.
Have you ever gone grocery shopping while starving before? Did you buy anything super random? I usually just end up buying way more than I need because everything looks good!
