Happy 4th of July! This is my favorite holiday. If only I had this pair of shoes in red, white and blue!
I went running early this morning. I ran a half mile to warm up, then started recording my time.
My first mile was 9:01, second 8:23, and third 8:27. After recording I ran the rest of the way home but didn’t want to think about time, I just went off feel. My feet were a little tired yesterday so today I ran in my Nike Pegasus with superfeet insoles. They have plenty of support, but I have to make an effort to not land on my heel. I don’t plan to run in these shoes daily, just occasionally. I want to be able to run as fast as I did today in my flatter shoes. I could definitely feel that my calves weren’t working as hard today in the Pegasus. I will do my next run in my Pure Flows.
It was already getting hot but about half of this run was in the shade.
Yesterday one of my readers, Susan, suggested I eat a bagel in the morning before running. I didn’t have bagels in the house, but I had sourdough bread. I made toast with butter and rushed out the door. My stomach was happy and I didn’t get dizzy when I finished running like I had been before. Thanks for the tip, Susan! After running I had eggs, linguisa, and potatoes. That’s a good recovery meal.
We had burgers for an All-American lunch and fish tacos for dinner. I’m slowly getting back into the habit of cooking more!
If you haven’t tried Sierra Nevada’s otra vez yet I highly recommend it.. . It tastes like not very sweet lemonade. It’s so refreshing! I tried to buy more at Safeway but they were out. I will have to stock up any chance I get.
How was your 4th?
