I Somehow Managed

I somehow managed to burn my toast so bad I had to throw out one of the pieces and make a new one. I ate the less burnt guy though. I like burnt toast, but this was like charcoal.

I somehow managed to run 16 miles today. It was not easy. I can’t even remember the last time I ran anything over 10. And my body made it clear that it wasn’t used to this kind of mileage right now.

I ended walking the hills for the last 5 or so which threw off my time. 16 miles, average pace 9:22.

I somehow managed to scream, “Oh No!!!” when I saw a dead little bunny on my run. I might have scared my fellow run/walkers, but it made me sad. 

As soon as I got home I had half an apple. I think I was super thirsty more than anything because all I wanted was fruit and water.

After a quick shower I made a BIG smoothie in a bowl.

I somehow managed to put every topping I could find on my smoothie = cereal, chopped protein bar, PB, almond slivers, a ham sandwich, sea salt… Okay, not those last 2 things, but the rest of them were piled high.

And finally, I somehow managed to still be hungry after eating all of this! I think I am still thirsty though, so we’ll see. IMG 6102 thumb I Somehow Managed

Have a good day!

    I’m curious about your IT Band. I remember last year you had an issue and took off 6 weeks. Do you ever have pain still? How is it healing?

    I could kill for those times! lol I always feel that way after long runs until I’ve had about 3 glasses of water, and sometimes a mixture of water and powerade. :/ I have yet to try the smoothie in a bowl though, that looks delicious!

    I always have to chew something after having a smoothie otherwise I don’t feel satisfied, but with toppings, who knows?

    Great job on the run!
