Nothing like a nice 6 mile run to get my Saturday started out right! 🙂
Nothing speedy–just an enjoyable run before my long run tomorrow.
Prior to running, I had a piece of toast with peanut butter and banana on it. Definitely a good pre-run standby.
After running, I had a Clif energy gel shot. I normally don’t have gels after running (usually only during a run), but I didn’t feel like eating much of anything else.
I heard these were good, but I was not impressed. I’m not sure if it was the flavor or just the Clif brand in general, but I’ll stick to my GUs for now.
I spent a good chunk of time foam rolling and stretching while I waited for Craig to get home so we could go to the gym. Since he was running a little late, I finished off the rest of this yogurt. (There was only about 1/3 cup left.) I sprinkled some Cherrios on top. Love Cheerios!
When Craig got home, we went to the gym where I lifted weights for 45 minutes. I alternated between arm lifts and abs/stretching. I didn’t want to lift my legs since I knew I would be doing a long run tomorrow.
Then it was time for lunch.
I topped my salad with tomatoes + carrots + nutritional yeast + homemade croutons (so good!–way better than store-bought ones!)
This afternoon Craig and I got pedicures!!
We went to Glaze Nail Bar in Anchorage. It is a super trendy, eco-friendly, natural nail salon and spa.
With all the running I do, my feet take a beating, so I was in desperate need of a pedicure.
We are off to have dinner with friends tonight! See you tomorrow!
