5 miles +

So this am I had to get up and do 5 miles before hubby had to take off and help out family in nyc. I was actually excited to get up and have a solo run. I knew that if I got it out of the way I would feel very good.

It was perfect running weather, although I should have brought my gloves as my hands were cold.

I didn't even map out my run which is quite crazy of a control freak stat oriented person like myself. I just ran and had the garmin to tell me how much. It worked out very well, and I defiantly felt great at the end and was going faster at the end of the 5 miles. I felt strong. I wound up doing 5.25 , i forget the exact time and I did not download the run yet.

I am building each weekend b/c I am running 15k in a marathon relay. I am very curious about GREENS and if any one uses any type of green mixes (protein drinks etc)


  1. Nice job on your run!

    As far as making green drinks go, I don't really use a mix or anything. What I usually do is add about two handfuls of spinach to my smoothies. You can't even taste it and you get a big nutritional punch from the spinach. I also use hemp protein powder every once in awhile in my smoothies too.

  2. Five miler, well done! I want a Garmin so bad I could spit. I have no GREENS experience, but I'll be watching to see how it goes for you. I'm always looking for something...

  3. I use protein drinks mainly after long runs (like your 5 miler;-), and strength training generally. i use a whey protein.


what are you triing
