Man it’s hot!!

Sadie woke me up at 6:15 am this morning which was a little later than normal. I got up, fed her and let her out, then ate 1/2 WW bun with PB and half a glass of H20. I was back in bed by 6:25! I got back up around 7:30, got all my running gear and headed out to my parents house. It’s about 30 mins to my parents so I got there at 8am and immediately headed out. The sun was so bright and there were no clouds. SUCK. I was attempting my hilly route from Monday but doing it backwards for a little change. But half way through I was so HOT and the sun was just beating on me. So I decided to detour from this route and go on a shaded trail. MUCH BETTER IDEA. The trail doesn’t have as many hills but still has a few. It’s amazing how the sun really sucks energy out of you. I just kept telling myself, get to the 4 mile mark. Then I remembered right around 4 miles there is a water fountain! MY SAVING GRACE!! So I stopped for about 30 seconds, got 3 sips of water(that’s my magic number for sips of water at a time, haha) and decided I could definitely make it to 5 miles. The last mile was pretty flat but was back out in the scorching sun. I made it though! Yea!! It was tough but I’m glad I kept pushing on. Here are my stats:

Avg Pace: 10:19min/mile

Mile1: 10:21

Mile2: 10:17

Mile3: 10:26

Mile4: 10:29

Mile5: 10:03

I feel pretty good about this! I walked about 0.6 mile home and then walked Sadie about a mile then walked another mile on my treadmill while reading. My legs were so happy to finally sit down and rest!!

I had a GREAT lunch today!! I definitely didn’t want something heavy so I decided to make a yogurt parfait!!



This included:

1 container of Chobani Greek Yogurt with Peach

huge handful of blueberries

1 nectarine

1/2 banana

1/4 cup Kashi Go Lean Crunch

1 TBSP Naturally More PB

This mix was AMAZING!! And got me pretty full! I am curious how long it will hold me over!! I love summer fruits! That nectarine was awesome! I am definitely picking more up at the store today! I’ve also realized I am addicted to Naturally More PB. I just can’t get enough! It’s great on everything!! Not sure what to make for dinner… something easy and summery for sure! Any suggestions??


  1. This is randon, I know, but I might be coming to Memphis for a weekend in July or August. I've got a friend there, and when I say friend I mean a boy, and while I'm in town I'll probably need to get a run in. Maybe we can meet up and run together!

  2. Good job girl. The heat really affects me too. Way to push through it. Nice reward too. Yummy

  3. Girl, I don't know how you do it. I'm proud of you :)

  4. Great run! Especially in the heat. Some times a glorious water fountain is all the motivation you need.

  5. The sun really is the worst part. Maybe I need to try out the 3 magic sips of water when I'm out there!

  6. Water fountains can make a hard, hot run soooo much better!

    I love nectarines...I hadn't had one in forever and I bought some this week! I'm definitely getting more!

  7. SMOOOOTHIEEEEEE! Dont listen to me, I think I just have an addiction, haha.
