This morning I woke up with the same leg pain I had yesterday, but still battled through a 4.1 mile run. It’s amazing how many more miles I can cover by simply setting my alarm 5 minutes earlier.
The weather was my “perfect running weather.” It was a cross between a late summer/early fall morning. Not humid, not chilly, and not hot. Just perfect.
Last night I made a Steak & Mango Scramble for today, but wasn’t quite feeling it for breakfast, so I made my Green Smoothie to bring to work instead. In went my favorite Chocolate Peanut Butter protein, a few slices of frozen banana, a dash of cinnamon, a splash of Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze, water, ice and a dash of Xanthan Gum. It wasn’t bad, but I definitely couldn’t stomach finishing it. I’ll have to work on the perfect combo. I’ve only recently started using Xanthan Gum, so trying to make the perfect shake has been tricky. I’ve found it makes my shakes warm. Ick!
When lunch time came around, I was more than ready to tackle my Steak and Mango Scramble, and it HIT the spot!
