We told ourselves last week, that we were going to try to give a better effort to getting our workouts in on the days they are scheduled instead of playing catch-up. In particular Sunday’s long run and Tuesday’s track. Those beginning of the week runs set the tone for the rest of the workouts, and we have found that if we don’t start off right, it shifts up all of our workouts and creates more fuss.
So today was makeup Monday–we had a tired husband Sunday morning, someone stayed up too late watching movies, maybe? ;). It’s alright though, we don’t get too worked up about it,–life goes on, and we reschedule. He needed his rest, and we both enjoyed our lazier Sunday. But man, Monday is tough. It was extremely humid today, the air was heavy on us and we’re planning for 10 miles, but I finished at 7, and Eric put in those last few. I haven’t sweat this much all summer. It was a steamy before-the-sun-came-up workout.
Ooey gooey steel cut oats topped with blueberries, kashi crunch cereal, and raw old fashioned oats with a side of orange slices. Hit the spot for sure.
And of course a fabulous cup of coffee–iced latte with soy milk. Delish.
