It’s March 1! Spring is in the air, no doubt, because suddenly our weekends are getting busier and our long runs are getting longer. We started the weekend with a rare Runner Girls Night Out! So blessed by the wonderful friendships I’ve gained through running! Of course they all look gorgeous here! However, I’m still so grateful they tolerate the selfie stick at dark-thirty as well 🙂We were in a recovery week, so our mileage dropped back to 6 on Saturday. Thank Goodness! After a rich meal out, some ice cream and a glass of wine to two – I wasn’t exactly excited about including speed drills into our run. Don’t get me wrong … I actually love speed drills. Just a lot less after girls night. 2 mile warm up, 2 miles intervals, 2 mile cool down. Done!Both my daughters’ had major projects they’d been working on for a couple weeks and turned in the day before, so the rest of Saturday was a celebration of sorts – out to brunch and then to the paint your own pottery studio. Our favorite kind of day! Rehydrating with one of my favorite Nuun flavors – Watermelon! Recently reformulated with all clean and natural ingredients, certified vegan and gluten-free the Watermelon Active and new Mango Orange Energy are my current go-to’s.
The color-coordinating Minnie Mouse shoes are just a bonus – reminiscing about my first runDisney race two years ago!
Note to self: figure out how to coordinate next runDisney race!!
Linking up with my friend Marcia for Tuesdays on the Run!
Favorite way to spend your down time?
Do you love drinking water? Do you flavor it to make it more appealing? I aim for 100 oz/day. and usually get there. I fill my 24 oz tumbler 4 times then make sure to have a little extra water with dinner. One of those refills is almost always a Nuun – Active or Energy on days I run in the morning; and All Day or U Natural on days I’m not up at dark thirty 🙂 Hydration is KEY for me during training 🙂
