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
My wrap contained:
- Provolone cheese
- Swiss cheese
- grilled green peppers, onions
Does it take you forever to get ready for runs? Seems like I pack up the whole house lol!
