Before I get to the good stuff, I have to share this (running related) story that has been haunting me for days! I run different variations of the same route almost daily, all of which include a road that goes between our University’s baseball and football stadiums. Apparently in one of the trees is a mother bird protecting her babies, who does not appreciate me running by! For the past week or so, she will attack me (literally) from behind! I have been hit by her 3 times every day that I have run by. Tried changing sides of the road, got swooped at. Tried running in the middle of the road, still swooped. Tried looking backwards as I passed the tree and running away from the stupid bird…STILL SWOOPED! So…I’m changing running routes.
I don’t concede fights easily, but Mama Bird, you win.
Anywho…I had a killer weight session thanks to JM this morning and did sprints since the first time since…softball? Gross. Post weight lift re-fuel:
Soy Latteeee! + an unpictured apple, this was really just to tide me over until lunch
Today’s RUNdown: 4mi., 32:30, Swooped 3 times.
I re-kindled my dislike for running in the afternoon, it’s HOT! Which of course required a smoothie to cool down, in my second favorite way to eat a smoothie…
IN A BOWL! This way you get granola, and a spoonful of peanut butter in every bite :]
Hungry two hours later? Of course. Protein filled but light snacky that wouldn’t ruin my dinner:
FACT: Nothing rhymes with edamame. (It’s true, we googled it)
Dinner was a winner!
Maple Glazed Salmon over brown rice + Roasted Zucchini and Squash! Mmmmmm!
