It was so weird waking up to an alarm this morning; I didn’t know what was happening. All summer I haven’t had to use an alarm, so when my alarm went off at 5:30 a.m. this morning, I didn’t know what the noise was. I guess this means summer break is official over.
Speaking of being woken up by unfamiliar noises, the other night, Craig and I were sound asleep and all of a sudden the bed started shaking and rocking back and forth, and Craig, still half asleep, mumbles, “it’s an earthquake.” I didn’t know what was going on at first since I had been sound asleep, but I guess that’s what happens when you live in Alaska.
Within 10 minutes of my alarm going off this morning, I was out the door for a very enjoyable 7 mile run. Ten minutes into my run, I was feeling good, so I decided to pick up the pace and do a tempo run. Here’s a breakdown of my run:
10 minute warm-up
30 minute tempo run (I tried to pick the pace up every 10 minutes.)
15 minute cool-down
Breakfast was a Pineapple-Mango-Banana Smoothie and 2 waffles. (I had another one after this picture was taken.)
What is your favorite kind of nut butter?
I used to love peanut butter but find myself reaching for the almond butter more often now.
