10 miles @ 8:04 pace on trail
I enjoyed my sweaty run today. Took things easy and knocked out 10 good miles. Nothing was sore or hurting.
I was only going to do 8 miles today… until I literally ran into my sister on the trail 🙂 We ran about 1.5 miles together and it was amazing. She listened to me rant almost the whole way, hahah. Made.My.Day. I came home to a wonderfully smelling house, as I put butternut squash in the oven before I left and set the delay start option accordingly. I love doing this with bagels, too. I stuffed my face with the yummy butternut squash (half with thyme, half with cinnamon) and Cafe du Monde before completely stretching.
While the oven was still hot, I made some chocolate peanut butter muffins (aka cupcakes without frosting, haha) for Todd’s birthday. I will be in the Key’s for his BDay so I’m fitting in as much spoiling I can leading up to my departure. I even took him a few to work 🙂 While they baked I enjoyed my usual green smoothie and some rice to round out my 4:1 protein to carb ratio post run. Gotta keep the body fueled with more than just “muffins.”
As I’ve just mentioned, this weekend I’ll be headed to the Key’s for my girl Brittany’s Bachelorette PartAY! Don’t hate me when I tell you that I won’t be blogging while I’m there. I know you’ll miss your daily dose of HRF (HeatherRunsFast… it’ll catch on!) but I’ll be back before you know it! I like to follow bad news, with some good, so let me cheer you up…
I just have to let everyone know that starting tomorrow, 7-11 has medium Slurpees for $0.49!!! What what? Slurpees are so good this time of year! I’ll be sure to slurp down a few when I get back.
I really love the banana flavor because I weirdly like the taste of fake banana. Remember runts? My favorite is the banana, and the heart ones, whatever flavor that is. I even have banana extract that I use in my green smoothies 🙂
Since I’ll be missing Todd’s birthday while I’m gone, I grabbed some take home froyo to eat tonight while we take throwback Thursday to a new level and watch Ferris Bueller’s Day Off 🙂
Please tell me you have a 7-11 where you live?!
What is your favorite runt flavor?
