A week ago today I was freezing my tail off as I completed the Walt Disney World Marathon. This morning I woke up to a balmy 68 degrees and ran my first post-marathon 3 miles. Life is good. 🙂
The 3 miles felt great. I ran at what felt like a natural pace and didn’t realize how fast I was going until after the first mile I heard my garmin beep and looked down to see 8:32 pop on the screen. It was as if my legs had completely forgotten the 26.2 miles it had ran a week before.
This was a huge step up from my last marathon when my first post-marathon run was when I realized I was injured and ended up having to take two extra weeks off from running to recover. No pain is a good thing and makes me very happy.
I also put the new shoes to the test this morning.
Its amazing the difference a new pair of shoes make. These babies still need to broken in, but it was nice to have a little cushion under my feet. I didn’t realize until this morning just how much I had worn out all the cushion in my previous pair. It takes a new pair of shoes to realize just how worn out my old ones were.
After my poor review of Bondi Band headbands a few of you were wondering which headbands I do recommend. It’s nothing fancy, but I swear by Goody’s Stay Put Headbands.
They’re cheap, I can find them easily at Publix, and they actually stay in place. They may not be pretty, but they get the job done. Love, Love, Love them! 🙂
Sunday mornings = waffle mornings!
I followed the directions on the bag and made one delicious waffle that I topped with plain yogurt and strawberries.
This mix is very hearty and chewy. I love it!
The strawberries were also as sweet as could be, no sugar or syrup needed. Yum!
Today is grocery shopping day! (Is it sad thats my favorite day of the week?)
Best get to it!
