Jam Packed Thursday

Afternoon! This is one heck of a late post but we've been cah-razy busy 'round here. The boys were ready to go as soon as they woke up! Bouncing off the walls and everything. I had mandatory coffee and a pre-run snack of sammie thin and PB.

I dropped the dudes off at school and headed home to prep for my run. It takes me FOREVER to get ready for a longer run. How about you? I should have laid out my gear the night before but I was too lazy lol. This is how cool I am.  Not sure what's wrong with my one eye haha.

I had planned on doing a 10 miler but ended up doing 11! It was a bit by accident. I headed in one direction but the head wind was too strong. I decided to turn around at mile 1 and go in the other direction. Lake Hefner's running trail is 10 miles all the way around. I took more walking breaks than I would have liked - boo. But I did it! I'm proud of myself. I did stop for a restroom break and 2 or 3 stretching breaks. The knees and booty muscles started hurting and stiffening around mile 4. At miles 4 and 8, I took Gu shots.

Some lake shots:

Still can't believe I ran all the way around that beast! Raise the roof! My sweaty, post-run face. SESSY.

As soon as I got home, I made a Green Monster.

My GM contained:
  • 2 handfuls spinach
  • 1T flax
  • 1.25 cups soy milk
  • 1 banana
  • 2 handfuls of ice
After a quick shower, The Lover took me to Jersey Mike's for lunch. I was still pretty hongree! I had their veggie wrap and some of The Lover's Cheetos.

 My wrap contained:
  • Provolone cheese
  • Swiss cheese
  • grilled green peppers, onions
  • lettuce
  • mayo
Overall, it was pretty good but WAY too much mayo. Now, we're working on more garage sale fun and Big Sis and I are going to hit up the Asian grocery store. Woohoo!

Does it take you forever to get ready for runs? Seems like I pack up the whole house lol!


  1. Good job on the 10. Looks like a pretty lake too. I'm happy every time I get into double digit miles.

    and i take forever to get ready for a long run. it's not the outfit, it's all the other crap. gu's, loading up the camelback, stretching, ugh. takes forever.

  2. Ive never run around LAke Hefner! MAybe someday soon!

    And I think toast and PB is a GREAT pre run snack!
