Sunday's Long Run

So, I drank a little too much last night. I am going to make that my last bit of drinking alcohol for 2 weeks. (well, I may have a glass of wine with dinner tonight if the BF's parents have drinks available) I did wake up this morning a little dehydrated, but I had to run. I turned on the coffee pot and had a Mango Hammer Fizz to help with my self-imposed dehydration. 1.5 cups of coffee, a Fizz, a few glasses of water, a Hammer gel later, I was ready to go.

I was only scheduled to do 4 miles, but I have a lot of nerves regarding this 10k coming up. So I did 6.2 miles to ease my mind. I will be doing it on maybe 4 hours of sleep, since I work swing shift and don't really want to take the night off of work. (and being slightly hungover mimics lack of sleep, right? lol) But I did the 6.2 in less then 90 minutes. Doing this workout really helped take the pressure off of my mind. I expect to eat maybe just a gel and a cup of coffee when I get up and then head out to the race. I know what time goal to shoot for and how I will feel afterward. I expect about the same time if not a bit better on the 20th. I know I will take less walk breaks because it won't be so hot at 8am compared to noon. I do not like the heat.

I did my slog on the greenbelt from the zoo to past the golf course towards Barber Park and then back. What I noticed on these past few jaunts were that the users on the east end are less friendly then the west end users- even though there are more users. I had 3 people wave, say Hi, or smile today and 1 was a Boise PD bike cop, so I don't think he should count. On the west end on the past few slogs, nearly everyone I pass wave or say Hi. This is just something I find a bit strange. I even painted my nails yesterday so when I wave today, I would not have chipped nails, but nice shiny perfect red polish.

Do you acknowledge others when you pass them? I really don't mind waving but saying Hi is sometimes a little hard when my mouth is dry and I am breathing hard.

Happy Birthday To Me

Happy Birthday to me.

You know how I celebrated the start of my birthday on midnight at work? (I actually am not taking my birthday off. Why can't all birthdays be on a weekend day?)

Burpees, pushups, squats, crunches. One for every year. So, I did 22 of each.

Ok, 24. ;-)

Sunday, for the BFs birthday, we had a shot of Wild Turkey. And our birthday shot (which I found out Vista Bar doesn't do free birthday shots - shame on them! Looks like Neurolux is my preferred birthday celebration location because I know they give free birthday shots) made me want to really enjoy another, but I refrained.

Actually, I think this weekend, I will be taking in a cocktail or 4 at the Modern.

I also made sure to sign up for lots of restaurants deals for birthday goodies this year because I like being a cheapskate. I like it when places give you a week (or all month) to use the goodies and not just on your birthday day. I don't want to go for a free b-day meal alone on my birthday at lunch, wh…

Kiss Me Organics Organic Dandelion Root Tea - With Hibiscus & Cinnamon Review

This post is sponsored by Kiss Me Organics and no other compensation was given.

I love Dandelion. They are not really a weed, but they have so many health benefits. The BF started eating them a few years ago. And he picked the first one this last week for me to eat. He has even gotten some of his guy friends to start picking them and eating them regularly. Serious! I am thankful for this tea because I don't have to eat them out of the yard, unless I want to. They are full of nothing but health. This tea tastes way better then a flower out in the yard!
