Hi everyone! How’s your Sunday going so far? Mine’s going great!
I ended up going on my run, and it was fab! I’m so glad I got it done in the morning. I have a feeling come tonight I’d have been wishing I would have done it.
I ended up going 5.5 miles instead of 4.5. I finished in 52:30.
Max HR=185 (There was some hill work on this route)
Avg HR: 172 (a wee bit high)
Cals Burned=630 whoa baby!
I felt super awesome afterward, but during the run, I was SO hot. I thought since I made it out by 8:30 it wouldn’t be so bad, but it got to a point where I almost tore my shirt off to run with only my sports bra. I took one quick water break around mile four, but I think I needed a couple more in between. Next time I might take my own bottle of water instead of relying of drinking fountains. I was drenched when I was done.
Even my tummy was soaked!!
I think this is the most I’ve sweat in my whole life.
As soon as I got done, I made myself a GM and some blueberry pancakes made with oats and whole wheat flour:
They were SO good. I wrapped some up for tomorrow’s breakfast. Leftover pancakes? You betcha.
A little after I finished eating, my friend called and asked if I wanted to go to the Third Sunday Market. It’s a HUGE festival in the summer each month on the third Sunday with vendors selling everything from antique doorknobs to summer squash to soy candles.
Oh, and the best part were the Apple Cider Slushies!
Holy moly these things almost knocked my head off! Sooo good.
I ended up getting some blueberries and two soy candles. Shane wasn’t too happy about the candles. I’m a bit of a candle freak and we have drawers full of them…oops!
It was a lot of fun, and I can’t wait to go again next month!!
What fun festivals does your city have in the summer?
