A Speeeedy 5.5 Miles

Good Morning, Good Morning, Good MORNING!

Last night I woke up every two hours on the dot and I thought it was time to get up, I hate when that happens. I know it’s because I had a lot to think about with all my meetings last night. Must relax before bed!

This morning I did a speedy 5.5 mile run(45minutes) with Fast Jill, and Mr. Rick. I so love the beautiful morning air! For breakfast I was craving a Green Monster with some added peaches. Our sweet neighbors dropped them off yesterday.

My GM included:

  • 1 c soy milk
  • 3 c baby spinach
  • 1 baby nanner
  • 1 peach
  • handful of cantaloupe
  • whey protein powder
  • handful of ice

It was LIME GREEN!!!

I am still a bit hungry so I might make myself some toast and PB :).

That’s it, I am not working out anymore!

Can I just tell you how impressed I am that you get up at (or before) 5:00 a.m. to run? I started my long run at 5 a.m. this past weekend, and you would have thought I was the only one who ever got up so early, judging by how sorry I felt for myself! :)

Great job on the early morning run! You are rockin' all those hats you are wearing! Hope you have time to test Hubby's fact for the day - you are one busy girl!

what if I did only green monsters for every meal for like 7 days...would I lose weight? would I starve...hmm I'm interested to see... but probably not diligent enough to try :)

Is that true about the kissing? You mean to tell me that I should have purchased more chapstick today instead of a new pair of running shoes. Chapstick is so much cheaper! @_@
