(9 loooong days without you.)
Today's run was brought to you by... SHORTS! And.... CADBURY! Yep. I'm back on the eggs. I went 9 days without one and, after my night shift last night, I couldn't hold out any longer. Aaaaaand I bought four. They'll most likely be gone by 10 p.m. and I'm okay with that. Enough about Cadbury. Let's move on to RUNNING IN SHORTS!
When I woke up from my day-of-sleeping-post-night-shift... I was groggy... I was grumpy... and I certainly didn't feel like going out for a run. But then I remembered just how good I would feel after my run and that was all the motivation I needed to get off my ass and get out the door. I checked weather.com and it was 48 degrees outside. 48 degrees is TOTALLY 'running in shorts' weather (it's sad that I now think 48 is warm enough for shorts but whatev). So I did a run around the reservoir and when I got home I felt like a million bucks. Now where are the rest of those eggs?
Do you sometimes eat candy after a run? I am embarrassed to admit this but sometimes my post-run snack is a piece of chocolate followed soon-there-after by a protein smoothie or a big bowl of cereal. I promise 94% of what I eat is really healthy. And then there is the 6% that is filled with gummy candy or chocolate or baked goods or cookies... all in moderation, though.
Is it 'running-in-shorts' weather where you live? I'll admit... it was a little chilly when I first got out there today... but after about 5 minutes, the fresh air felt AWESOME on my bare legs!
Garmin stats: 5 miles/39 minutes. 'Round the Reservoir. And now my head is clear. Thank god for that.
