running, boiled eggs and smoothies

interesting title huh ?

Running. I finally ran after about 3 weeks off due to shin splints. It felt awesome, I did 3 miles on the treadmill and was loving it. YES, loving a treadmill b/c that is how much I missed running. So next up will be that I start to run more often AND I am going to try and do some sort of speed work once a week. I also know a woman who is a serious runner (sub 7 miles in her races and always places) and she said she would start working with me. Oh and I am going to get a new pair of sneakers since I have had my current pair longer than 8 months and did train for a sprint tri in them, as well as doing 3 sprint tris in them and wearing them pretty much everyday for regular wear. I will be getting the same pair, the Brooks Trance b/c that is what works for me. 

Boiled eggs. For some reason I was dying for a boiled egg the other day. I guess it is due to the fact that I am trying to eat better and instead of snacking on crap I thought hum, a boiled egg tastes good and is not junk. I have realized that this is a perfect protein snack and am incorporating it into my food so that maybe I won't be as hungry by end of night when I have my junk/sweets. 

Smoothies. I love smoothies. But I love when a store makes them for me, hands it over in a nice plastic cup and the lid and a big straw. YUM. I bought a blender. I have all that is needed to make the same exact thing they make in the store and charge me 3.50 + for. I finally made one today and it was not perfect BUT it is workable. But the best part about it, my kids sucked them down. 

Happy Turkey Day, we head out tomorrow for a long road trip. I am going to try my hardest to pack some healthy snacks for the long ass car ride. 

Enjoy !!!
