Hi guys! I am having one of those days where I just want to stay in my jammies and do nothing. :p We are having a very chilly day today, the coldest yet it seems. I so did not want to get out of bed but I made myself. I wanted to see the sky and wanted to run early not later. It was cold and very hard to leave the nice warm bed and husband. I did a short turn today, my old route. Even though my shins are a bit sore ( I had Scott rub them while we watched TV last night. I love having my shins rubbed. Weird? I dunno but it feels awesome) I was going to try and run faster today keeping my HR way up to see what kind of exercise that would turn out to be. Well it figures that my HRM decided to be a dinkus and not work right this morning. *grumble* I had a HR of 76 and 60 today. I burned 41 calories it said. This happened on the last really cold day too, so I’m assuming I need to make sure I super wet the band on colder days. Otherwise it can’t pick up the signal it seems.
I drank my recovery drink and was out the door. It was sooo cold that I actually got chilly during Rocky’s walk. I almost sprinted the rest of the way home because I was so cold! That’s a first, usually it’s starting to warm up by then.
Because it was so chilly, I almost made some oats but since it’s Friday wanted something a little different. I toasted 2 kashi waffles and one has PB and honey and the other has AB and honey. Along with coffee and pumpkin creamer. Oh that was soooo good this morning! And these waffles fully filled me up. In fact I’m still full and normally I would be getting hungry for lunch about now. I do think I need to start considering more protein in the oats some how.
I have so many things I want to do today that involve going out and running errands. However all I want to do is get comfy and lay on the couch and read. I better get moving and try and get some stuff done! See you later
