Hola Amigos – happy Tuesday!
For an on-the-go breakfast today, I’m going to be noshing on a WildBlueberry PURE Bar, a Sliced Peach and Banana.
Sweet and tart – just like me 🙂
I’m going to be devastated when peaches aren’t in season anymore! Do you ever just stop and smell a peach? Sometimes I think the smell is more exciting than the taste…
Then I come to my senses, eat it, and realize that NOTHING is more exciting than the taste of a peach! 😀
For lunch today I packed some Fresh Vegetable & Thyme Frittata slices, over a big bed of baby spinach, with some of that monster squash and cherry tomatoes.
That’s the awesome thing about a frittata – it’s just as good cold, as it is hot!
I was thinking about making zucchini/squash bread with all the leftover squash I have. I think that’d work, don’t you?
Today’s Greatest Running Tips
So today’s selections from the 101 Greatest Running Tips, also come from the “Starting Out” section. They’re good ones!
Tip #9. Don’t crush the egg: “Don’t clench your fists in a white-knuckle grip. Instead, run with a cupped hand, thumbs resting on the fingers, as if you were protecting an egg in each palm.” –Runner’s World editors
– I am actually in a really good habit of keeping my fingers and hands pretty loose. Like tensing up your body, clenching your fists wastes so much energy!
Tip #10. Make time for a quickie “If 15 minutes is all the time I have, I still run. Fifteen minutes of running is better than not running at all.” –Dr. Duncan Macdonald, former U.S. record holder at 5000 (set when he was in medical school)
– I can aaaaabsolutely improve on this. I am, in general, an “all or nothing” kind of person. Really though, any and all forms of exercise, in any and all lengths of time is better than nothing at all. Now I just need to convince myself that getting sweaty and needing to take a shower for a 15 minute run is worth it! Which, it is.
Tip #14. Stay “liquid” “Hydrate. Hydrate. Hydrate! In cold weather and warm. We use water to sweat, lubricate joints, tendons, and ligaments, and to carry blood efficiently to major organs. I work all day at hydrating.” –Dr. Alex Ratelle, former masters running great
– I really like that quote – “I work all day at hydrating.” because it’s a really important job! If I’m not hydrated not only am I thirsty, but I’m tired, listless, cranky and working out is darn near impossible. Try getting your hydrate on with fun foods like watermelon, peaches, cucumbers & zucchini!
Well, I’m hitching a ride to work today with the husband, hence the on-the-go breakfast. The battery light came on in my car over the weekend, so I dropped it off at the service center yesterday morning. I haven’t heard back from them, so they either stole it or the problem is worse than I originally thought…RATS! Think good thoughts!!
