My birthday may have come and gone, but the fun still lingers. 🙂
I found a tiny little package on my front doorstep last night after work. I pretty much ripped it open within seconds. It was from my BESTIE and marathon training pal Maria!
Check it out! I was stoked to find PINK running socks and vanilla bean Gu!
I have been running for over a year and have still never tried Gu, crazy huh?
So I am going to save this little Gu packet for my next looooooooong run, and then give you a full report. But I was not about to let these pink socks sit for too long without some lovin’. So I put them on my feet and geared up for a lovely run.
I just love pink. 🙂
My TNT Marathon training plan called for a 30 minute run which to me equals about 3 miles. I actually finished 3 miles in 32 minutes last night, as I was struggling to run two days in a row.
I’m still working on posting that training plan for you all to see. I promise to get it up as soon as I can.
I have noticed that running two days in a row was hard and pretty much exhausted me. So bad, that I may or may not have slept through most of The Biggest Loser Finale. 😦
Two funny things that happened on my run last night:
- I inhaled my first bug (yup, I was breathing pretty deep and bam! I started choking, the little bugger went down pretty fast though)
- Some guy saw me coming and started yelling “RUN! RUN” – he was mimicking my shirt. I was like “ha ha ha – thanks man!”
P.S – The pink socks rocked. They were comfy, fun and way prettier then all my current white running socks. I love adding a little pizzazz into my life.
The Biggest Loser overview:
Don’t worry, I did manage to wake up to see the confetti fall on the winner! So at least I know who wins. I am actually just happy for all the contestants this season. The ones I saw looked fabulous! So disappointed that I missed most of it though. Did I miss anything exciting? I was hoping there would be a Sam & Stephanie proposal? Was there?
Running Reader Question:
So this one is for the girl who has never tried Gu – What is your recommendation on when to take the GU, take it after about an hour of running? How often do you GU? Every couple of miles after an hour of running? What’s the difference between GU Chomps & Gu?
I personally have not run over 6.2 miles so have not had a reason to GU, but I know my long runs are coming up soon and I want to be prepared.
