I'm beginning tonight's post with a pic from last night's post-1/2 marathon run. My 'thumbs up' indicates that I am 'good to go' in terms of leg freshness. :D
|I think this pic is an optical illusion. My thumb nails are not that long...what's up?|
I was a wimp tonight and had to wear a jacket. It was 7 degrees but I was shivering. Okay, I even wore gloves! LOL.
Okay, how sweet are my grade 5 girls?! This is the sign they made for me to cheer me on at the Blue Nose on Sunday. Unfortunately the girl who had the sign was unable to go cheer, so I did not see it until today. So sweet <3
|Yes, those are my sock feet holding the sides down, lol. It kept curling up!|
I hope you have tried this smoothie from another previous post! I've added this pic to show you how I prep everything before I leave so that when I get home, my recovery shake is literally 'the push of a button away.' :) I have to add that we've had this $15 Wal-Mart blender for over 2 years and it STILL works great! :D The recipe for the shake can be found here!
Since Protein is your BFF in terms of muscle repair/recovery, I make sure after a super duper long run or hard race to refuel with a shake as a supplement to my daily diet.
Don't judge me. We used to listen to this song during warm ups when I was on the high school volley ball team. LOL. I added it pre-Blue Nose as a 'pump me up song.' It's Prodigy's "Breathe." Check it out:
Thanks again for visiting!
