I did an 8 mile run last night! It was so hot and humid. I think the temp was right around 74 degrees when we started. The sun was out and shining, it was miserable. I drank so much water on that run. I swear we had to make a stop at a local university to fill up our water bottles. I again fueled with the Hammer Gel products. I used Vanilla and it really does taste like icing on a donut. It was recommended by Corinne !
Food is still rockin! I weighed myself this morning and I am glad to say it is moving downward. I am daily weigher! I know, I shouldn't be, but I am. You can't fault me. It helps me stay in check. So I've weighed everyday this week and FINALLY I saw a number going down. I had maintained for several days, but this morning, it was DOWN, DOWN, DOWN!
Yesterday I did have to make few changes in food. I opted for a Pre workout snack. I selected oatmeal. I was feeling a little light headed and I didn't like that feeling. I figured with an 8 mile run approaching I need to fuel up before I went. I was so glad I did, otherwise I think I would've had to quit by mile 3 or 4. I then came home for my dinner of chicken breast, marinara sauce and ww noodles. I also had a small side salad. It was so good.
Tonight I think I'm running again. My schedule has been off a little this week, so I may run back again. However my legs are a little sore this morning. Not only did I do the 8 mile run, but remember on Tuesday I did some of my new Fast and Furious workout that included SQUATS....my least favorite by the way. That on top of 8 miles did me in. I may opt for a nice walk tonight. Will see as the day progresses.
I finished planting my patunias last night. They look okay. The husband thinks it looked half ass. I appreciated that after I planted them after my long run!
He is such a sweetie sometimes! Ha!
I have to somewhat agree, they didn't look great, so I hope they purk up some now that they are planted.
