Lubbock took its vengeance on me today for blaming it for making me a sissy runner. Jacob and I went out to Mae Simmons park to run a local cross country route. There are meets here ALL the time, college and high school, and it is a pretty killer course. It is 2 miles, lots of hills, turns, and changing surfaces, which is why I LOVE it. It never gets boring!
RUNdown: I ran the course twice, for a total of 4 miles in 30 minutes. My shins were nagging me a little bit, maybe for running two days in a row, or maybe just for subjecting them to hills. Other than that this was a good hard run that really really challenged me. The kind of good run that leaves you satisfied for the rest of the day.
I needed to hit the books ASAP, and had a lack of fresh fruit, so smoothie it was. I re-created an old favorite from my gym in San Antonio’s smoothie shop.
This is usually called a “Matt’s meal” but it doesn’t have chocolate like mine. Which DUH makes it better, so therefore I am changing the name, not sure what to yet…suggestions?!
