I usually increase my mileage each Saturday, but since I’m running the Zombie Half Marathon next Saturday, I decided to run 10 miles again today. I thought about running less and tapering a little, but since I’m not that concerned about my performance next weekend, I’m not going to do much of a taper.
While on my run, I had the remaining 3 Clif Shot Bloks (one serving) in this package. I munched on these during a pit-stop while Craig and I waited for two, large bull moose to cross the road in front of us. (They can be pretty slow-moving animals.) I can’t believe I didn’t want to bring my camera. Craig even asked me before we left, and I said no. Bummer! 🙁
I really like the taste of Clif Shot Bloks, but I have to stop and chew them. The energy gel packets are about the only thing I can consume while continuing to run.
On my long run last week, I wore my Nike mitten/gloves and my hands froze, so this week I had to pull out a thicker pair.
My run went okay; I didn’t feel awesome, but I still trucked along and managed to keep myself going at a pretty decent clip.
As soon as I got back from running, it was time to get some food back in my system.
milk + frozen strawberries + 1/2 banana + protein powder + chia seeds
I love how thick and frothy smoothies are! 🙂
