Woke up early this morning, but unfortunately I didn't sleep very well so I wasn't my normally perky self first thing in the morning!
Moseyed around for an hour, drinking a lot of water and munching on some crackers and decided to forego coffee and bring some caffeinated Clif Bloks instead. BAD DECISION. I pretty much felt awful for the whole 85 minutes, which stunk because I had built myself up to be so excited for a fun, fast run up here! Oh well–can't win them all!
There were my miles: 8:35 (all downhill!), 8:42, 8:52, 9:05, 9:17 (things are starting to go south right around here!), 9:28, 9:00, 9:17, 9:17, 9:57
Average HR: 155, Average Pace: 9:05
Proceeded to eat my new favorite protein bar, some fruit, and my leftovers from dinner last night, then fell asleep on the couch!
Since this IS vacation, I decided to follow up my nap with some shopping at the Gap Outlet (which was very successful) and a treat: grande hot passion tea!
I did some school work and then hit up the grocery store. I am one of those people that CANNOT go to the store without a list–but I did today and it actually worked out. I couldn't decide what to eat for dinner so I just bought a bunch of stuff that sounded good and threw it on my plate. Dinner was perfect!
Cucumber, snap peas, spinach and garlic chicken sausage, and fruit! With a few Sour Patch Kids for dessert, of course 😉
Looking forward to another run tomorrow and hopefully meeting up with the rest of our friends that are driving up!
