On a happier note...here are my 5 things for the week.
#1-Nothing is better after a 5 mile run than a tanning bed nap and iced coffee. I actually had a great run yesterday. I have been a little sluggish and having a tough time getting into running this year. The cold weather has really put me behind schedule. I felt good yesterday and managed to do 5 miles at a little under an 8 min/mile pace. So, I rewarded myself with an iced skinny vanilla latte. It was a delicious pick me up! What is your favorite post run reward?
#2-I found this great article on what goes through a runners mind while they run. It is so true that there are stages while running and after it's over we always think we can conquer the world!!
#3-Today is Royals opening day in Kansas City.
#4-I'm almost out of local honey and the farmer's market doesn't open for another week. I have been rationing it out for the past 2 weeks. I love the local produce and fun pastas from the farmer's market, but when I run out of local honey-it is a crisis!!! I really do think it helps with allergies as well as tasting wonderful! What is your favorite thing from the farmer's market? How often do you go?
#5-I am so excited for a chill night in tonight. We are making homemade pizzas-well kinda...Trader Joe's par cooked pizza dough, sauce, and cheese...the Fearless Flyer this month was all about pizza!! http://traderjoes.com/fearless-flyer/index.asp
We are making pepperoni and pineapple. My personal fave!! I must be getting old since I am pumped to have a nice relaxing night in!
