HAPPY BIRTHDAY ART!!!
Woke up late again! So mad at myself! I’m going to have to put my alarm clock by my door so I have to physically get up to turn it off… I arrived an hour late so I ran 5 miles while the team ran 7…I began at Rickenbacker Causeway, went out to Biscayne Road & 32nd street and back to Hobie Beach. Felt great at the beginning of the run, could’ve been the power bar I had. Our coaches and veteran teammates advised us to try out different foods before our training runs to find what agrees with our tummies. I usually have a piece of toast with peanut butter (my favorite!), felt more energized with the peanut butter power bar, though. Still, I want to stick to the all natural stuff….I’ll try a PB&Banana sandwich next week. Back to the run. My shins felt okay but my calves felt tight. Stopped at the turning point for a brief stretch and a swig of Gatorade. The way back was tough….the sun was scorching and it was disgustingly humid, have to be thankful though, no skeeters this week!
