Evening Run!

Hey again! Ahh, I didn’t do much else today after my nap-fest. I did make it to the grocery store because I was out of chicken. I wouldn’t have slept well knowing I didn’t have my favorite post-workout meal waiting for me after my workout tomorrow.

I am seriously in love with chicken, avocado and a little salsa on top with red pepper flakes and pepper. It doesn’t sound that great but I loveeeeee it.

I finished cooking up my chick-a-dees, and cleaned the kitch, and thought about going for a run. Before I knew it, I was outside hitting the pavement. The true Arizonan in me came out, because although it was still about 98 degrees outside(high of 111 today :)) I thought it felt really nice out. I didn’t wear my HRM, I didn’t bring a watch, I didn’t map out a route, I just RAN. And ran and ran! I ran fast and loved every minute of it. I always forget how much I love my outdoor runs. They are so soothing to my cluster-f*&k of a brain. The whole time I was out there I was thinking about how thankful I am to have the drive and ability and athleticism to just run my heart out. It felt so amazing. I ran along the road by my house which is a windy road. It is about 1.6 miles long in length so I decided I would run up and down it(approx 3.2 miles) I didn’t time myself, but door to door it took me about 30 minutes. All I had with me was my ipod and I really can’t wait until the weather cools down a bit.(Which in AZ, our summer usually doesn’t end until like October. bleh) Either way, these evening runs will hopefully happen more often.

That’s all i’ve got for now, but I will be back tomorrow with a possible cure for my raging hormones. Ugh the aunt is almost gone and hopefully life will be NORMAL again, until then..no excuses 🙂
