I know I haven’t posted my Friday stats yet, but I’m floating on a major runners’ high and had to say IT’S GREAT TO BE ALIVE! I slept in a little bit (9:30) this morning and had some breakfast (to be pictured later – 1 flax wrap with almond butter, slice banana, sprinkling of mini chocolate chips) and a big glass of water before hitting the pavement. I left looking like a mildly stiff, slightly groggy 27 yr old. I came back a ooey gooey mess of tired, sweaty muscles with a big stupid grin plastered on my face. I wanted to quit and walk about a million times (those Central Park hills are rough) but I took my own advice and never stopped on an uphill so by the time I was gliding downhill, I wanted to keep going!
I think I logged a little over 8 miles, though it’s always an estimate in CP since I don’t have a fancy schmancy watch. But, honestly, who cares about an extra .25 mile? (Except of course if it comes after 26 miles…) Regardless of the exact distance, I feel great! I’m currently sipping on a 50/50 mixture of coconut water/H2O and have a date with my foam roller.
Hope you’re having a great Saturday!
