For reals, it was a pretty boring day around here.
I slept in a little. I did laundry. I had leftover pizza for lunch and ate 41,938 little green dangly worms on my easy 7-mile run.
So, instead of asking you to read a boring post about that, I’m going to ask you to do two things.
One, check out A.J.’s post – and the resulting discussion – over on Hollaback about questions and comments in blog posts. Good stuff.
And two, answer a totally random question for me. I’ve been wondering about this for a while but haven’t really had a reason to ask, even though I’m sure y’all have the answer:
What is the deal with almond milk?
I’m not being snarky – I’m honestly curious! It seems like a ton of people consume it and I can’t quite figure out why. I mean, I get it for people who avoid dairy and/or soy, but I often see it, for example in a smoothie, right alongside yogurt. So it better for you? Does it taste better? Does it give you sweet-smelling marzipan farts? Do I need to try this stuff?
Anyway, I realize that was totally apropos of nothing. Indulge me, just this once.
I’m going to round out this completely useless post with some menial weekly running data:
M – 7 easy (57:42, 8:14 pace)
Tu – 7 with 5 at tempo (52:12, 7:28 pace)
W – 4.1 easy (34:33, 8:26 pace)
Th – 9.2 easy (1:19:48, 8:40 pace)
F – 3.6 easy (30:00, 8:19 pace)
Sa – 13.1 easy (Cville Half, 2:14:45, 10:17 pace)
Su – OFF
Total: 44 miles.
I’m not sure what’s in store for this week! I might try that 5M tempo again, but actually run it at half-marathon pace, and it would be nice to sneak in a track session, too. I’m also thinking about a 5K on Saturday. Gotta get my racing fix before the summer swelter sets in!
