So, itâ€™s randomly 70 degrees and super humid this morning in North Carolina. Wtf?! I feel like Iâ€™m in Florida! Weirdest winter ever. It was cold yesterday!
I decided the only way to deal with this was to have a smoothie for breakfast ðŸ™‚
I made my favorite â€” a green Banana & Spinach smoothie! Sounds gross, is delicious. Super quick and easy, too ðŸ™‚
On the side â€” a piece of hearty wheat toast topped with almond butter and the other half of my banana (the first half went in the smoothie!):
I think I would eat toast with almond butter and banana for every single meal if I could. Soooo good.
All together now!
I also decided that this weather warranted painted toe nails and flip flops ðŸ™‚
Flip flops feel weird because I havenâ€™t worn them in so long!
Before breakfast, I spent some time this morning at my apartment gym on the elliptical with my biochem flash cards (I had a smaller piece of toast with almond butter before leaving home).
Doesnâ€™t that just look like a blast? Sigh. Iâ€™m all about the multitasking when busy/trying to study, though, as you know! My test is at 11 a.m. Iâ€™m feeling kind of prepared, but not as prepared as Iâ€™d like to be. Thereâ€™s just so much complicated stuff to understand/remember!
I will leave you with some fun photos of my awesome speed workout early yesterday morning with the girls at the UNC track. I think we killed Lauren, haha. (The sweat stain makes this photo even more awesome)
We did the same workout as two weeks ago:
- Jog 1.5 miles to the track to warm up
- Run 12 laps around the track (3 miles), broken down as:
- 6 laps at a fast pace (~6:30 min/mile pace)
- 6 laps (one in between each fast lap) at a slow jog/ending in a walk to recover
- Jog 1.5 miles back home (man we were tired!)
As you can see, we did a total of 6 miles! Intense. Iâ€™m definitely sore today, but as always foam rolling and icing help ðŸ™‚
Time to finish studying, pack lunch, and head off to school! Have a great Wednesday!
