It was supposed to pour rain today, so we didn’t think we would be biking and I decided to go for a run. I left a note for John to meet me at the track as I would be running longer (he usually does 3 miles). My plan was to go 6 miles.
Pre run fuel – mini whole wheat bagel:
I took an opened bottle of POM juice with me as well and a bottle of water. Jogged for 3 miles, had water and a little juice, then started on the 2nd set of 3 miles. I finished 6 and John hadn’t arrived, so I drank the rest of the POM juice at started to go home when John arrived at the track ready to run! I thought, what the heck and told him I would go for another 2 miles. We didn’t run together, because at this point I was going pretty slow LOL! Finshed up a total of 8 miles! I was so sweaty, as it is still pretty humid around here.
Had a wonderful breakfast in front of the fan:
Banana oats with PB2 cooked in topped with chocolate chips and a sprinkle of coconut. This is one of my favorite combos.
I won a $100 Dicks GC at Miz Fit’s site and it arrived by FedEx.
Yay! We decided to go to the Saratoga mall because the Dick’s is bigger there. Isn’t it funny how when you have the money to spend, you can’t find anything to buy? There is no hurry to buy anything. I was looking at some workout clothes, and possibly some bike shorts, or a jacket. Dick’s doesn’t sell road bikes, or I would have put it towards that. Thinking maybe for next summer to have both my hybrid bike and a road bike.
Stopped at the food court for lunch. There was a special at one of the chinese places for 2 entrees and 2 side dishes. Of course, this was meant for one person! But John and I decided to split it and each choose a side and entree:
My choice was chicken with broccoli, and a side of steamed broccoli. Pile on the veggies! Chicken with broccoli is actually a good choice to get for chinese food. They steam the dish instead of wok cooking it here. I had a couple bites of John’s rice. I knew that I was going to be getting a treat later, so decided on a veggies side dish. It’s all about choices!
More shopping ensued (I love that John goes with). Made a stop at TJMaxx and they had some great sales on workout clothes! I got a long sleeve, hot pink technical top and black workout pants for $18! I loves me a bargain. I’ll have to take a picture of them.
After we got shopped out, stopped at The Fortunate Cup (which you may remember from last Saturday) and I got a skim latte:
Plus a cranberry orange cookie.
It was delicious! After my run, I think it’s a good treat 😀
This place has a wonderful build-out. You know it’s kind of sad when a coffeehouse has a better bathroom than you do at home.
Watched some of Tour of Ireland on tv. Isn’t this a cool logo?
The biker shamrock! Love it!
Low on food, so it was omelet time for dinner. I forgot how fluffy omelets are in the GT Express. This is 2 eggs with some feta cheese. I decided on no veggies since I had so many for lunch.
Went grocery shopping tonight and stocked up. I have to say I am pretty beat right now. Pixie is beat, too – and she wanted to show all of you her giant feet!
After all that, it didn’t even rain today.
I am so tired I can’t even think of a question. LOL! Have a great night!
