Morning/Afternoon lovely’s! I hope your Saturday was a good one! I have church today, but I am going to enjoy the afternoon and rest some. Today is also my long run of 7 miles.
We also gained an hour last night. How are you doing with that??? Do you like falling back and gaining an hour? I think it’s a toss-up for me, because I don’t particularly like getting up when it’s dark and then going home from work when it’s dark. It’s the whole losing an hour of daylight in the afternoon that I don’t like, but I guess it’s better than springing forward.
7 Mile Run:
Mile One: 9.12
Mile Two: 8.58 (halfway thru this mile I took my jacket off)
Mile Three: 8.55
Mile Four: 8.50
Mile Five: 8.56
Mile Six: 8.36
Mile Seven: 8.32
Total Time: 1:02:01
Average Pace: 8.51
I felt really great on this run!
So it’s November the 4th and I am so thankful for Christ. Because when I don’t feel loved, or feel like I don’t have purpose, or when I get sad I know that true love, my purpose and my happiness comes from having a relationship with Him.
I found this cool 21 Day Challenge on a blog that I read called The Chocolate Mile that I thought was pretty neat. One of the requirements is to have Twitter, but since I don’t have it I am just going to follow along on my blog. I have missed a couple of days, but I am still going to jump right in!
Day 1: Write a letter to yourself about how you feel today, seal it up and open it on Thanksgiving.
Day 2: Step outside of your box! Do something that you’ve been wanting to do, but makes you uncomfortable.
Day 3: Call someone up that you have been thinking about, but haven’t talked to in a while.
Day 4: Operation beautiful. Leave a note for someone.
Pre-run I ate one waffle with some almond butter and waited 30 minutes before I ran, but once I was finished I made myself a banana/chocolate smoothie.
- 1 cup of 30 Calorie almond milk
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 scoop of chocolate protein powder
- 1 large handful of spinach
Last night I looked over at my bed and this is what I found:
He kind of just blends in with the blanket… in case you were wondering, he is there now. 😉
So this past week I have watched this tree’s leaves turn. It was the coolest thing to watch and I wish that I would have taken a picture earlier in the week. I love the colors!!
I am off to rest for a little bit! Have a wonderful day!
