A new PR!

I just ran 5 miles in under 50 minutes with a PR of 9:31 for 3 miles – OMG. I am on cloud nine right now! I have never ran this fast or far before – I am a newbie runner :). The last mile was hell! I had to stop in middle of it, take a breath and a swig of water and get right back into it. But I did it! YAY! This is one of my items on my 101 list, too!

I fueled this morning on a piece of sprouted toast with almond butter and a 1/3 of a honey crisp apple.

I was drenched when I arrived back home! But nothing beats a good sweat!

I quickly refreshed with a green Green Monster! (Marc wanted to take the picture so I give all of the credit to him!)

PS – Baby J LOVES Green Monsters and here is proof! (don’t mine me, I am completely soaked still and pre-showered)

It a beautiful day in Seattle! Hope everyone has a great day!

Eyes. Are. Heavy.

I hope everyone is enjoying their Saturday.
I, however, am exhausted! I stayed up until 2 last night working on my iPod and just overall not sleepy and I woke up this morning and went straight to a spinning class. No coffee, either. Yikes!
But I loved the spinning class – this was my first one! It was an hour of leg burning, sweat dripping, heart pounding intensity. My legs are very sore right now, too. I have always wanted to attend one and I have heard nothing but great things about them. I am glad I did!
I woke up and toasted a piece of spouted bread with almond butter. I knew I needed some fuel for my class!
Afterwords I made myself a chilly, red green monster – it was so soothing! Almond milk, strawberries, a peach, half of an orange, a scoop of Amazing Meal (my last one! more is on the way :), blueberries and some water.

We made an amazing run to Costco grabbing some bananas, chicken, brussel sprouts, avocado, strawberries and melon. It wasn’t that crowded, either! Made a quick stop at Target to pick up some personal items and them home I went. I was starving and tired! I was comforted by a nice warm bowl of lentil soup. It hit the spot!

I feel like I need some coffee, though. All I have is decaf so I may take a run to go grab some while Marc is out. Maybe….

Light as a feather!

Finally!

I took the time and got fitted for running shoes! I purchased a pair from Brooks Adrenaline line. I just got home from the gym and they passed the test with flying colors! My feet felt like pillows – no pain, no rubbing in the wrong places, just pure comfort! Plus, I was able to check #2 off of my 101 list!

Running here I come!

Oh and just look at this messy eater! I made him organic brown rice mixed with organic pasta sauce and avocado. All he was impressed with was the spoon 🙂
