Yesterday was a busy one! Crushed a 5km run in the morning, worked for a bit, met up with my local co-workers for a Christmas lunch (ordered grilled fish tacos and a side salad…they were delish!), went home, worked a little more, and then headed down to the barn to act like a 12 year old. Nothing says Christmas like decorating your horse’s stall and putting reindeer antlers on his head. Once a horse nerd, always a horse nerd! It never gets old.
You can see the expression on my horses’ faces just willing me to grow up. It will never happen!
This morning I woke up early and lazed around until I couldn’t laze anymore, strapped on my running shoes and busted out 10km. The longest run I have completed since October is 6km so it felt good to do something more substantial.
Basking in the post-run glow! OK, I’m busted…it’s partially beauty filter.
I have three running goals for 2016.
- PR in my 15k distance.
- PR in my half marathon distance.
- Run a half marathon without any intervals (normally do the tried and 10 & 1s).
First race is a 15k at the end of January.
After my run, I made a recovery smoothie:
In the mix: berries, half a frozen banana, coconut milk, 2 ice cubs, 1/2 a scoop of the funk (protein powder) and a bit of water.
After lunch, I will be heading down to do some riding. It is a rare dry day on the wet coast, so I have to get those outdoor rides in whenever I can!
