Immediately following my run today I had a decent blog post written in my head. The only problem was I had a teleconference, shower, then leave for a flight. So no real time to sit down and write the dang post. Maybe it will come back to me later this week :) In the meantime here is the mish mash happening in my head while procrastinating writing my trip report in a seriously nasty hampton inn.
Monday I did some weights and cross-training at the gym. It's always tough to be instead when it is so nice out but my body enjoyed the light day and no running. Tuesday morning there were plans to wake up when my hubs left for work. Instead I slept another hour, replied to some e-mails, then made it out the door around 9:45 am. The day greeted me with little shade, no breeze, and high humidity. I made it through the 11 miles just under a 10 min/mile. Not very fast but that's summer running for me! I think today was the longest mid-week run I've done that wasn't considered my weekly long run. It felt good and I'm off to great start to week 2 of training.
Today I noticed I've got a sweet farmer tan without even trying. Between the watch, tank top, short, and sock lines I'm looking hot ;) I use sunscreen spf 45 but after several hours outside and not being able to reapply that's what happens!
I've also been having serious food cravings since I started upping the mileage. It's bad enough I'm hungry every 90 minutes but now all I want, besides cookies or cake, is bacon or avocados. And it's even better if I incorporate those 2 together. Like today for lunch I had a BLA (bacon, lettuce, avocado) sandwich. Normally it would have been a BLAT but no edible tomato in the house to be found. Last week I think I had bacon in at least 1 meal every day. So... not... healthy... I need to try to limit the bacon to say 2 times a week :)
