Day 290: On Thursday afternoon Mike and I went hiking at Mt. Sanitas in Boulder. The trailhead is just a short distance from the popular flatirons trail and I think it’s a much more difficult hike….which is always more fun when it’s over 🙂 It took us about two hours to scramble up and down the mountain and take lots of scenic pictures. We even took a break to gobble down peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. I am not sure what it is about hikes, even short hikes, but I have to eat a PBJ or it is not complete. I absolutely believe this to be a true statement.
Day 291: Yesterday my stomach was pretty upset all day, so I decided to get my workout out of the way as early as possible. I ran a quick three miles to and from Washington Park and said quiet prayers that my stomach pain would not act up. Luckily, the pain held off until the run was over. I came home and made my new favorite (pre-wedding breakfast):
I have been eating the breakfast for the last week and it’s kept me satisfied until lunch. Give er’ a try!
Day 292: I just got back from a six-mile run at Washington Park. Feeling excited before about the run, I decided to take a different path the whole time and run in the opposite direction at the park. I know, I know, getting CRAZY! I just felt like I had to switch up my pattern to get out of my brain a little bit and let my body take over some more. It worked. I ran 6 miles at a 9.40 pace, which is a little faster than I normally run and I felt great. If you’ve been running the same path for years, I recommend switching it up, no matter how odd it feels. I promise your bod’ will thank you for it.
