What was the best part of your Summer?
Newly added to my Tunes I Dig section is Katy Perry's Roar. If it's recommended by Hungry Runner Girl it has to be awesome right?! I feel like her and I have the same taste in music, and food. We're secretly BFF's but she doesn't know it yet. ;)
I believe I've mentioned this before, but the Thursday easy/short run is always........I repeat.....always the hardest to get my butt out the door. So weird. The fact that it was very windy and sideways rain didn't help either.....lol.
Even Lola was saying, "No mommy, stay here and chill with me." ;)
After the run I did my ab workout with 8 sets of 30 reps with various core movements. Then I worked out my arms for about 1/2 hour in total. I think I am obsessed with watching reruns of Friends during my at home strength workouts. The early seasons are my favourite. You know, before Ross & Rachel were 'on a break.' ;)
Friday = Rest day
On days when I have no run to do, I can eat anything I like for breakfast. :D I usually stick to oatmeal with berries or cereal on running days just to be on the safe side. ;) Long story short, I had these waffles with all of those strawberries!!! :D So tasty.
Obviously I couldn't let all of those strawberries go to waste, not to mention the extra time I had since I didn't have a run to do. Therefore, I decided to make these tasty Strawberry Muffins. Okay, not to toot my own horn, but the warm one I tried straight out of the oven was y-u-m-m-y!
On my 'rest day,' all I thought of was how badly I wanted to go for a run. Especially when I checked facebook, instagram and e-mails that are flooded with running chatter and pics. That being said, I did honour my rest day. Yay me!
Oh, I forgot to show you the cool sticky not dispenser STAPLES gave me yesterday when I was doing some 'Back to School Shopping!' I just had to show my Teacher ID card and voila---Freebies! Don't worry, I am going to redo my nails this weekend too....lol.
Friday afternoon I had a coffee/chat about running date with Nadia. That being said, I actually had a mint tea instead since I had already consumed 2 coffees earlier.....lol.
We chatted for nearly 2 hours about running and other things. The more we talked about running, the more I wanted to go run. I know, it's a rest day. Therefore, I fought the urge, hard and did not run. Tomorrow's run is going to rock! ;)
And lastly, I tried to do a plank this evening, even though my abs were sore from Thursday's core workout. I managed a pathetic 2:01.............don't laugh! It was hard.
On the agenda tomorrow is a 10 miler followed by the big 20 on Sunday! Who is going to remind me to take an extra bottle of water with me on Sunday to prevent massive thirst on the run as experienced last Sunday???
I'm so happy you popped in to check out GGR. Have a beautiful evening!
P.S. Maritime Race weekend is in 2 weeks!!!
