Once again I decided to wait until the afternoon to run, and I’m sure glad I did because it was 24 degrees here this morning!! Brrr!!!
Two hours before going out for my run, I had this Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Larabar.
I have a sweet tooth, but even this guy was a bit sweet for an afternoon, pre-run snack. Don’t get me wrong, the flavor was really good, but I wasn’t expecting the extra sweetness!
I did a nice little 5-miler this afternoon as soon as I got home from work. Craig joined me on his bike, which always pushes me to run faster, but I’m not complaining!
After running, I always make sure to include a good amount of protein and carbs.
protein: Morning Star Grillers California Turk’y Burger (9 g of protein)
carbohydrates: English muffin (25 g carbohydrates)
After reviewing my long-sleeve running tops, it is now time to review my running capris.
These are loose and super comfy. They aren’t my favorite for running in because the extra material swishes against the other leg, but for a shorter runs I can tolerate them. They are great for lounging around in or lifting weights at the gym!
I’ve had these gray Nike capris forever (since college), but I still wear them a lot! The material is soft and the fit is just right. The only thing I don’t like about them is the higher rise on my waistline, but I just roll them down, and I’m good to go.
In other news, I signed up for the Zombie Half-Marathon here in Anchorage next weekend ~ Saturday, October 23. Kind of last minute, but I have trouble making decisions sometimes.
I did this race last year as well, and it was a nice little, low-key race. It was cold, but it was fun seeing people in zombie and Halloween costumes. I’m not much of one to dress up for a race since
a.) it requires creativity, which I don’t have, to come up with a costume,
b.) you have to run in a costume for more than an hour and a half, and
c.) you have to run in a costume.
We’ll see, maybe I’ll cave to peer pressure.
If you were going to wear a costume for a race, what would you wear?
