HEY friends!! Hope you’re having a great weeeknd!
I’m loving all the entries for the Sun Warrior giveaway!! Keep ‘em coming!
Much as I loved today, I had a number of failures…
Breakfast was a fail. Tried to sub Sun Warrior protein powder into my PB+J breakfast cake instead of flour. Note to self: flour is necessary, or it will be a crumbly mess. Next time, I will sub SOME flour, but not all!!
I had a fail on the food variety front. My nut butter consumage (<— add that word to your dictionaries- I have already) today was off the charts. On and in breakfast, in dessert (non-dairy chocolate ice-cream topped with Dark Chocolate Dreams)…
Clearly I have a very varied diet!
I made up for this fail by having an awesome track workout!!
Track 400m repeats run:
1.5 mile warm-up
4 x 400’s at fast pace + recovery laps inbetween
1 mile cooldown
Fast lap paces (in min/mile): 6.00, 5.59, 5.55, 5.55.
I had planned to do more repeats, but when the shin started complaining, I decided to listen and just enjoy the laps I managed to do! Not to mention foot pain from all the blisters!
I had a slight fail with outfit choice though…
Am I ever going to stop raving about them? No, sorry, I love them too much
I also failed by leaving my clothes in the track changing rooms. Complete with my phone which was in my jeans pocket. And then only realising this after the track had shut. I know where I’ll be returning tomorrow!
(Photography fail. You know you all want photography lessons from me- I’m such a talent clearly!!). The Pringles not so much (chocolate>crisps/potato chips), but I cannot be trusted around dark chocolate buttons. I demolished nearly the whole pack single-handedly, and it was goooood!
But UNfail/win of the day was getting an answer at the quiz that NO-ONE else got!! My running geekiness/Paula Radcliffe obsession paid off with this question: “What is the current women’s world record for the marathon?”. I practically leapt up and screamed “2.15.25 by my beloved Paula at the London Marathon in 2003!!”. I redeemed myself for being completely useless in every other aspect. Basically I was just there for the food- everyone knew it!
TOMORROW is Sunday, and we all know that is my FAVE day!! My Sunday routine will be shaken up a bit tomorrow because I’m going to see my friend get baptised (YAY!!) in the morning. But there will still be Pancake Sunday, church and a run, so it’s all good!
Have you had any ‘fails’ today? I will add procrastinating writing this post to the list. It is 1am right now here. Ooops!
Is your diet varied? Erm…no. It is 99% nut butter, chocolate, dates and broccoli.
Chocolate or crisps/potato chips? Sweet tooth or salty? I think you know my answer!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend friends!!
P.S. If you didn’t know, I am a musician and I am going on a mini-tour (I have a longer one in summer) to Germany from April 9th-12th, and I would LOVE if a couple of you guys could guest post for me? Email me if you’re interested at email@example.com and I will love you even more if you do!!
