What a Lovely Day for a Run!

Standard

Sunday was SUCH a beautiful day and luckily the NFC game between the Seahawks and the 49ers wasn’t until 3:30 so I got to enjoy all of the sunshine!

Isn’t it lovely? (those power lines mess with the view)
ImageI decided to do a nice long 10 mile run, as Sunday is the traditional long run day after all.  I’ve been experimenting with what to eat before I run to see what works the best for me.  On Sunday I tried these little guys which are basically fruit snacks. Yum! I’m still undecided about what I think about them for actual running purposes, but taste-wise they’re delish! (I need to fix my nails, don’t mind the cracking.)

I also tried this gel halfway through the run.  I previously have used GU and have read a lot of people complaining that it makes their stomach hurt so again I’m giving it a shot!  This was the first time I’ve had this kind of gel and it WAS SO GOOD!  The first ingredient is honey and it really just tastes like you’re eating honey.  I mean, yes.

I’m obsessed with running shoes and I have a few that I am completely obsessed with.  These are my Brooks Pure Flow.  I really like the Pure line and these have a little more cushion for the pushin and are for neutral runners.  I use these on my longer runs.  Plus they’re cute!

I was very happy and refreshed pre-run and sweatiness.  Not so much after.

When I got home I had some Raw Meal, which tastes less than ideal but is sooooo good for you.  I drank that as fast as possible so I could get to this:

Oh yeah.  Vegetarian really isn’t so bad people!! You can’t see it but this sandwich is also covered in pesto and black pepper mayo.  IT’S AMAZING.

Here’s the break down of my run that day.  I’m not “fast” or “slow” as I’ve seen compared to others speed-wise, I seem to fall somewhere in the middle, but I am hoping to work on my speed this year!

I spent the rest of the day watching the game and cheering for the Seahawks (my hometown) in a house FULL of 49ers fans.  In case you didn’t know, the Seahawks won.  It was awkward.  But we all ate an amazing taco bar and had a lot of fun!

What did you do to work out over the weekend?

Anyone else watch the game?

    • I don’t know how you do it! You all have to be hardcore just to go to the store and it’s extra impressive if you also make it out and run. I’m sending happy thoughts towards spring, summer, and warmer days!
