Please ignore the dirty rug. Today I ran 6.2 miles at the gym and it felt great. MUCH better than yesterday. I think it had a lot to do with my pants. Yesterday I rocked some rather tight sweatpants, which made me feel super tethered. My legs didn't feel free and it was a struggle to run over a 9 minute mile pace. Today though, I wore some leggings and shorts, and it was much easier! I had a banana for a little refuel before I decided to check out this new gem in town:
You should have seen my face. I was beaming the entire time I was in the store. I bought a few things that I have been dying to get ahold of!
Ok, the whey protein powder was not from Trader Joe's, rather Walmart, but I wanted to show my "energy" selection of goods. :) I have read many good things about flaxseed and am anxious to put it in my oatmeal tomorrow.
The wine is only $2.99 a bottle!! I am stocking up for sure next time I go. The bagels are so yummy! I had a half with one slice of the garlic cheese, along with a tangerine and some of my leftover thai veggies from last night.
Today has been fantastic! Jason made breakfast this morning when he came home from work. Eggs, bacon and toast with coffee and juice. Senator Ben Nelson was supposed to speak at UNO, but he had an emergency and was still in Washington. So we decided to go to a great coffee shop, Blue Line, for caramel lattes. The run was great, Trader Joe's exciting, and now I am finishing up dishes and laundry before a quick shower and then work at Dario's for a few hours.
