Once I got outside, and I wasn't sure when I would get hit with a downpour, I decided just to forgo the B210K plan today and instead just run straight through. I'm not sure if mile 1 is always just a mental thing for me but it is always my worst mile, even though its my best time. I'm constantly thinking that this is really hard and I would rather walk it. But like magic, each time I hear the mile 1 indicator, I've usually found my stride and it gets much easier from there.
My normal plan was to just run 3, but then I thought I would see how 4 miles would feel. I felt pretty ok once I hit the 3 mile mark so I would give it a go. I did it. My official longest run ever was in the books!
I got back home and decided to celebrate with trying a new Protein Shake recipe out. It turned out pretty good! It's not my absolute favorite, but I will definitely put this one in the rotation!
Here is the recipe in case you are interested.
Peach Cobbler Protein Shake
1 scoop French Vanilla Protein Powder
1 cup Almond Milk
1/2 cup Frozen Peaches
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
10 ice cubes
The rest of my morning was cleaning and getting ready for company to come and visit. We had a rousing adventure playing Dungeons and Dragons. Lots of fun was had!
And I think Oz, decided to get in the spirit of exercise recently. But I don't think he's doing it right!
