Shot Bloks and Protein Bites
I pushed my Friday run to yesterday, which wasn't my plan. The thing is, I hadn't planned on it taking 2 hours to get home. Traffic? Psh, too easy. There is a loop road around Jacksonville, which I didn't get off and around I went....
Yesterday after the blueberry festival and a nap, I powered up with water, Shot Bloks and Power Bar's Protein Bites. I tried them at the Disney Expo last January, and they were pretty good. Mixed with the Shot Bloks, they definitely seemed to do the trick. I also really like the resealable pouch; I hope they sell them in bulk.
A short run was on the docket for yesterday, and I started off at a faster pace (5.0mph) and tapered off to 4.5mph, then 4.2 and finally stayed at 4.0. I ran for 30 minutes, and did a cool-down after, with a decent amount of stretching since I am getting a longer distance in today.
Total distance: 2.3 miles in 33 minutes, but that includes my warm-up.
I would like to get in 6 miles today, but it might not happen since I am helping to get the foundation for our shed set today. I am letting my bagel and peanut butter settle a few more minutes and then heading to the gym. It's hot now, so I am letting the gym run the fans and the AC instead of me. Hey, that's part of why I pay for a membership right?
Oh, and don't forget - once I hit 50 followers, I will do a giveaway!
