Since I am not really officially training for my half just yet, I still obviously need to run. Despite only managing to get 2 hours of sleep the night before, I woke my butt up at 5 am to meet the OKC Landrunners for their second training run.
I was not in the least bit pumped for this because it was still ridiculously hot at 6am and I was tired. TIRED. Anywaaaay, I ran 4 miles at an 11:57 pace. I don’t normally run this pace, but I could not keep it together. It made me feel a little better that some people who normally kill at these training runs took some walk breaks too.
Nothing went well with this run, besides my lovely Lululemon shorts staying in place and being awesome. I didn’t bring any water along the way and I didn’t run far enough to go to a water stop. I coveted other runner’s handheld water and hydration belts. I even considered swimming and drinking ditch water. (I wouldn’t REALLY do that.)
I managed to finish my four and head home.
I’m so glamorous and I never sweat and I always look SO cute after a run.
^Don’t worry. I wasn’t driving during this picture.
I came home and made a Blackberry Smoothie.
-8 oz. Almond Milk
-1/2 cup of Blackberries
- 1 cup of yogurt
- 5 ice cubes
-2 scoops Protein Powder
Injury prevention is key.
