This morning I met up with my running buddy, Kim, for a long run on the Dora Trail and New River Trail. We hadn’t seen each other or run together since March! That’s like a decade in girl world and a century in running world. We had lots of catching up to do 🙂 It was great to see her and great to catch up and share the new things going on in our lives.
We ran 8 miles and my legs were feeling pretty sore and tired. I guess they may still be fatigued from Thursday’s track workout, even though I took a rest day yesterday? Other than that I really enjoyed running with Kim and it was the perfect weather outside for a long run: 52 degrees and overcast.
After our run, I stopped by the grocery store on the way home to pick up Sol for a cookout we’re going to tomorrow. I discovered Sol when I went to Mexico my freshman year of college for my cousin’s wedding. It’s similar to Corona, but better!
Once I got home I iced my shins. I have a history of having shin problems (shin splints, stress fracture) and they have been bothersome since I ran on the boardwalk at the beach. I will be doing lots of extra stretching, icing, and foam rolling to try and keep my shins and calves healthy.
I did a big grocery store trip yesterday (yes, I went to the store two days in a row, but the one yesterday did not have my beloved Sol). They were having a big summer sale and had a lot of produce on sale. I got strawberries, apples, pineapple (99 cents for a whole pineapple!!), pears, bananas, tomatoes, avocado, mango, and a cantaloupe. Safe to say I love fruit. I also stumbled across these new Cheez-Its.
They are delicious! Provolone is my favorite type of cheese to have on a sandwich. If you like provolone you should definitely give them a try! I also picked up this bottle of wine for the cookout we are going to tomorrow. It is a house warming cookout and I hope this Hokie Bird wine warms their house 🙂
I have no idea if it’s any good, but how can it not be when it has the Hokie Bird on it, right?
Do you have a problem area/injury that comes back to haunt you over and over?
Have you ever tried Sol? If you drink alcohol, what is your favorite drink?
Have you tried any new foods lately? What were they?
