I usually reserve my WIP (work in progress) Wednesday parts for my knitting posts, but today, my WIP part is about me.
I started the Couch-to-5K program this week, and completed day 2 this morning. I have often avoided the canal paths because they can sometimes feel a bit sketchy. But as I said before, our rails-to-trails paths are plentiful, clean, and lovely. It was even reassuring, as I was walking my way back to my car, to be passed by an Easton PD officer on a motorcycle, patrolling the path.
I went out this morning because we it got really stinking hot today (90s). It went so-so. My passenger seems to enjoy our outings, munching on graham crackers, sipping juice (is important to hydrate, right?), and practicing her yoga moves.
I did 3.06 miles. The first 2 miles were run/walk intervals (60:90), and the final mile was just a walk. I’m slow, I know. It’s almost laughable, and some of you hardcore distance runners are laughing at me, but hey, I make you look fast, right? 😉
My afternoon smoothies are simple, with minimal, basic ingredients. Today, it had a cup of frozen blackberries, a teaspoon of raspberry matcha, a scoop of vanilla protein powder, 2 tablespoons of peanut butter powder, ice, and water. I meant to add a bit of organic yogurt, but I forgot. It was tasty. Very filling. It tatted like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, sorta. I definitely need to get a bigger blender, though. These things are foamy, and they expand with blending. The Ninja isn’t cutting it.
