Hola Amigos!

Like the title says I’m going to keep this one short and sweet. It’s been a killer day, and I’m feeling a little under the weather, so all I really want to do is go to bed.

First of all a link to my Operation Beautiful post appeared on Caitlin’s Blog. I may or may not have let out a little *squee* of excitement when I saw my name in the links. It’s cool to be a part of such an amazing movement.

I banged out a 4.89 mile run in 1:00:02. So close to an hour flat, oh well. My legs felt like lead weights today. Have you ever experienced this? How do I combat it?
I always feel like my runs go better if I haven’t been on my legs for 8 hours working. Maybe it’s time to switch to morning runs, huh?

In other news, has anyone else noticed that it’s near impossible to find a vegetarian dish at a chain restaurant? I find it pretty disappointing that everything has meat in it, even the salads. Never mind the fact that the salads are the size of a feeding trough. (Quick tip: when eating out ask for a to-go box as soon as your meal arrives, cut your food in half, and pack it up. That way the food is out of your face.)

I guess it’s time to look for new places to dine. I need to expand my horizons, and live a little.

I hope your weekend is treating you well so far. Tune in tomorrow for a post on tips and tricks for a successful run. (Not that I’m an expert or anything.)

Smell ya later, Blogland.

Questions for you:

Do you find yourself going to the same restaurant over and over again? Do you eat the same thing every time?

    saw your post on health for wholehealth. yes…I do get caught up eating the samething…….esp my breakfast…because I like it too much.
    I vote for the morning runs…it makes you feel so much better for the rest of the day..and energy also!

      I didn’t think about the fact that running in the morning would give me energy for the rest of the day. I like the sound of that!

  3. haha yes I often return to my ‘old favourites’ when it comes to restaurants!
