|I wish it had been this warm on my run.|
Overall, I felt like it was a good run. I started out real real real slow, at just under 9 minute miles. Again, my legs just wouldn't warm up! In fact, I don't feel like I really got loose until mile 7! Regardless, runners push through, and that is exactly what I did. Besides, it was cold, but at least it was super gorgeous out! I get so much energy from the sun, so I just fed off that. I also decided to take a totally different route, which proved to be a great idea. I found out that I have so much more safe running areas than I even realize, and all I have to do is head out my door. I am excited to keep adding more and more distance to this new route, which will eventually include a scenic trip around a PGA golf course.
|Try to get your chest as low to the floor as you can.|
I find myself constantly trying to figure out new ways to get protein into my diet, and I think I have come up with a delicious and simple way to do it. Runner's World recently did a short article about canned fish, and how these are often forgotten or ignored ways to get fish into our diet. Personally, I always find cooking fish to be a pain, especially when it is cold, and I can't use my grill, so the idea of a pre-cooked alternative was alluring. I also grew up with canned fish because my dad always had it in the house. Yesterday I went to Trader Joe's and grabbed a few examples: sardines, anchovies and salmon. All of these fish were broken down in the magazine, and they all have some great advantages.
I am super excited to have a three day weekend! Having that extra day to sleep in tomorrow will be amazing! I am also excited to have some close family friends over tonight for dinner. We went over to their house last weekend, so it was our turn to host. I love the idea of Sunday dinner, so this is awesome. Plus, I love hanging out with my friends' kids.
I also feel like I am in a state of limbo right now. My parents have lived in Alabama for almost 10 years now, so I only see them one or two times a year. Recently, my father has been searching for provost positions at universities back here in Ohio, and he might hear back about one this week. If this were the case, we might be picking up and moving this summer. Personally, I hate moving, but I would love to have my family close by. I definitely have my fingers crossed!
Have you ever had fish out of a can? Do you like it or does the idea weird you out?
Are you the type that will try anything or are you picky?
Do you have to drive somewhere to go for a run or can you just go right out your door?
Anyone else have President's Day off? What are your plans?
