Fair Weather Running


Sheesh what a Thursday, and it isn’t even over yet.  Headed to the YMCA after breakfast to finish training on the FitLinxx systems and to hang out with my Christie!

Snacked on what is now probably my 2nd favorite Luna EVAH…(Nutz Over Chocolate is still my #1)

This bad boy was coated on the bottom with a white chocolate/mint specked layer, and full of choco-goodness on top!

Luna saves the day, again!  That held off the hunger for a bit, and you know where else I had to stop, aka make Kim pick up:

I swear, these Mistos are soooooo addicting!  Thanks Kimmy!

FINALLY.  After what has seemed like days and days of frigid temps, I saw this when I walked outside!!!

Grabbed the Garmin, geared up, and Kim and I set out on an 8 miler!  Not before a small pre run sugar fest:

I adore carmel.  Like, LOVE.  So these were definitely a must have.  Perfect blend of sugar to keep me energized!

I love my Garmin because I can literally just *run* and not have to worry about if I have tracked the route before or not.  It was the perfect running temperature!  So odd because in 48 hours we are supposed to have 8” of snow/ice.  Welcome to East Tennessee I suppose.  I really need to start being more careful when I run on the roads.  I think I take for granted that people either don’t see me or just down right don’t care.  I think I was beeped at/almost killed at least 3 times.  Whoops!  🙂  Finally made it back to the YMCA, 8 miles accomplished!!!

By the time I got done it was around 3:00pm and I was STARVING.  It is hard for me to have alot of food on my stomach pre-run, so I put lunch off…probably too long!  Sushi was definitely calling my name:

This bad boy had avocado, carrots, cucumbers, brown rice, and nori…can’t go wrong with that combo!  Veggie goodness:

And it was FREE (see two posts ago to see why. 😉 )  This + Cheese + Apple = yum.

And in typical Tyler fashion, I had to end this meal with a sweet treat.  What do you get when you combine chocolate and pro-biotics???

Attune!  This bad boy has 5x the probiotics of yogurt, which promote digestive health….WEE!

YUM.  Totally the healthy version of a Crunch bar.  Delicious.

Now off to plan my weight class!  Total Body H.I.I.T. is one of my favorite classes that I teach because I have complete control.  Muhahahahaha.  We work all the muscle groups (large to small) with cardio bursts in between to keep the heart rate jacked!  😉  We usually pack the house out, and there is so much energy going on!  LOVE it.  Plus Lady GaGa always makes an appearance…..or nine.  😉  Yay for squats/lunges/deadlifts/rockstar jumps/etc, anything goes in this class!  Can’t wait!

Later bloggies, I will have a dinner update later!

  1. fun fact: my S.O. found an old ipod in the men’s locker room of his former gym and no one claimed it so he gifted it to me… it came *completely full* of music, probably 1000’s of $ worth, and the amazing thing is that i LOVE running to every song on it! it’s totally eclectic, from rap to classic rock to pop to jazz – about half is stuff i’d heard before (and liked), and the other half is stuff i wish i’d heard before! so that’s what i run to. whatever’s on “my” ipod.

    • Wow thats awesome!!! I have a mix of everything and usually just shuffle through it during a run. today I found myself skipping through alot of Christmas music though, haha. Not very motivating!

    Nice time on the run…and we really like the food selections for the day.

  4. Oh my goodness, I love those caramels! *droooool* I never thought of using them for a pre-run for during-run snack. I bet they taste better than those gel blocks. Yum!

  5. Nice run! I don’t usually run with music… I like the peace and quiet!

  6. PS, all day long I was singing to myself “Lets have some fun this beat is sick, I wanna take a ride on your chocolate peppermint stick” Jusssssst throwin’ that out there to yall. 😀

    what a wonderful day you have had !!! I added more things to my Earth Fare list …. wish there was a way i could get there before the snow hits !
    We’re headed to mom’s tonight — awesome fireplace in case the electric goes out!!
    Will be a nice time for me to go through the blogs – make sure i’ve not missed anything.
    Grabbing Jillian Michaels 30day shred DVD in case we get stuck — but ya know — walkin in the snow is a great cardio activity !! So we may just keep it simple and head out for walks each day!!
    I’ve been rather random this morning — it’s early — no hot tea yet !! 🙂
    Have a wonderful day — can’t wait to read about it later 🙂 🙂

    • I love your randomness, you have such a happy soul, I love it! I hope for both of our sakes we aren’t stranded! It drives me nuts and I go stir crazy QUICK. I do have my stash of food though, so I will survive!!! 😉
