Good news: I ran 6.2 miles! :mrgreen:

Bad news: It was a really rough run. πŸ˜•

The combination of heat, humidity, and lack of hydration really did me in. I even ended up walking a few times. It was just not a good run. πŸ˜•

I’m actually kind of surprised how thirsty I got during my run. I mean, it was nearly 90 degrees outside, so, of course, I was thirsty, but I’ve run 5 miles in similar weather and been totally fine. I guess I need to get one of those water belts? Or a Camelbak? Any recommendations?

Here are my splits:

  • Mile 1: 8:35
  • Mile 2: 9:01
  • Mile 3: 9:08
  • Mile 4: 9:14
  • Mile 5: 9:34
  • Mile 6: 9:26

Total: 56:45

As you can see, my pace got slower and slower with each mile. My body was so hot and dehydrated, it just would not move any faster. Next time, I definitely need to bring some water. Lesson learned!


For dinner tonight, I tried a new recipe from Rachel Ray magazine. It was one of her 5-ingredient recipes for Peanut Chicken, but I made it with shrimp instead.


I have to admit, this dish was a bit bland. I used unsalted peanut butter, not realizing it would make a huge difference in the flavor of the sauce. Salted peanut butter would definitely taste better in this recipe.



Even still, Mal and I really enjoyed this meal. It’s a keeper, but next time I’ll use salted peanut butter.


After dinner, I whipped up a batch of banana soft serve with two Carrot Cake Cookies thrown into the mix. It ended up being quite carrot cake-like with the cookies blended in. Delish! πŸ˜€


I got so much accomplished today, I am taking the rest of the night off to relax. Wahoo!

Enjoy the evening!! πŸ˜€
