I sure do!
Sometimes a change of scenery is all you need.
This morning as Ryan and I changed to go to the gym, I asked him if he’d prefer to go for a run outside with me and Sadie.
He was all for it and suggested driving 10 minutes to a nearby lake to run rather than running around our neighborhood. That sounded like a good idea to me!
We hopped out of the car and did two loops around Lake Baldwin for a total of 5 miles in 46 minutes, with an average mile pace of 9:15. I could tell I was holding Ryan and his monkey legs (as I call them) back a bit, but I appreciated him running at my pace.
After our run, we toweled off and headed home to shower.
After a lightning fast shower and getting ready for the workday, I headed downstairs to make myself a strawberry banana smoothie for breakfast.
While I blended the ingredients together, I nibbled on Kay’s Naturals golden butter pretzel twists.
The salty flavor tasted great after a long run.
After whirring up frozen fruit, ice cubes, protein powder, xanthan gum and Almond Breeze unsweetened vanilla almond milk, my smoothie was ready for drinkin’.
I think I added a bit more xanthan gum than usual, because this smoothie was extra thick.
I ate the entire thing with a spoon.
Another Reason Why I Love You
I absolutely love how several of you immediately went to your kitchens and made those flourless peanut butter cookies after reading about them last night.
Just another reason why I love you guys so much… Clearly we share an intense love for peanut butter and cookies.
Question of the Day
Do you ever drive somewhere new to run, walk, bike or rollerblade just for a change of scenery?
