Hi, friends! Hope you’re having a wonderful Hump Day!
After breakfast, I got on my Summer Run Streak on and ran 2 miles, which was from my front door to the end of the street and back again. It was short and sweet, and I listened to Pandora on my iPhone and zoned out. I love runs like this because they totally clear my mind.
Speaking of running and iPhones, I use mine to listen to music, track my runs (via the MapMyRun app), and snap photos. (A bunch of you guys asked if I run with my camera, but I just use my iPhone to take pictures.) I also use my phone to get in touch with friends and/or Mal before and after races and, of course, I like having it, especially on my long runs, for safety reasons. I can’t say, however, I’ve used my cell phone to make a call or tweet during a run or race, but I’ve seen plenty of people do it!
Do you run with your cell phone? Do you think it’s a necessary piece of running equipment?
After my run, I quickly stretched, showered, and then headed to the dentist for a check-up/cleaning. I’m happy to report: no cavities! That’s three appointments in a row now! I guess my obsessive brushing/flossing/fluoride rinse routine is working!
After my appointment, I returned home, starving for lunch. There was some leftover cod in the refrigerator from last night’s dinner, so I added it to a big salad, which I topped with truffle oil and balsamic vinegar.
A few hours later, I whipped up a smoothie with frozen mango, banana, almond milk, vanilla protein powder, and a scoop of peanut butter as an afternoon snack. Mmm!
Just now, I ate a Kashi Trail Mix Granola Bar as a second afternoon snack.
I’m off to walk Murph and then to go to CrossFit. There’s a fun WOD tonight!
P.S. I’m a little behind with my magazine reading, but I just finished this article about Dave McGillivray, who heads up the Boston Marathon, in the April issue of Runner’s World, and I absolutely loved it. Just wanted to share!
