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?
