I woke up this morning and the sun was coming up. There has been a lot of grey skies recently, which is such a downer. This truly made my morning; awesome running weather too! ♥
The alarm was set for 6am so that I had plenty of time to eat and get my butt over to the park by 83am. I stumbled to the kitchen and decided that it was easier to make french pressed coffee than put a big pot on. I love the texture of french pressed coffee, there’s something so smooth about it.
Breakie was an easy decision as I got a mailbox surprise yesterday that I just couldn’t wait to dig into this morning. The wonderful people at Crofters sent me a bunch of their Superfruit Spreads to sample:
I hummed and hawed over what flavour to try first. It was a toss up between North America & Asia.
Asia won. Both yumberries and raspberries are native to East Asia and have been used historically for maintaining and restoring health. The Chinese know the yumberry as yang-mei. Once you’ve tried this brilliant red fruit, it’s easy to understand how the name yang-mei made its way to yummy and onward to yumberry.
For some reason I always end up having a complex carb + peanut butter before each run. This morning’s combo was a toasted Ezekiel English Muffin with crunchy organic peanut butter & jam.
We got in 11.3K LSD in 1h50 mins. I was totally into it and felt great. The sun was soooo nice. It was a rather blustery day though and the wind made it challenging at some points. I’m feeling much better about it all and am glad that I made the decision to stop stressing over the schedules and just follow the RR one.
I made a stop at the Mall and then headed for home. Was nice to get in the door by Noon and know that I have the rest of the weekend to spend cleaning and with hubby. Or should I say cleaning with the hubby. LOL. :) I know I’m missing a great time at Lesley’s with the girls but I gotta get organized. Hope you have a blast ladies!! xoxo
Lunch was mini pizzas and watermelon.
Gorgeous pink color!
