Beat by the Heat

Yesterday I completed a 5 mile run in 85 degree weather and it was quite the challenge. When I finally finished I was exhausted and felt overheated. This made me really impressed with all the people who completed the Boston Marathon yesterday in the record-breaking heat!

After my run, I took a cold shower and refueled with a delicious ProBar.

These bars are so good, but I recommend not eating them unless they are a meal replacement or for pre/post workout fuel. My reasoning behind this? They contain around 400 calories...

I have heard a lot of good things about Lauren Fleshman's Picky Bars and so I bought a couple this week to try. They are pretty pricey, but extremely delicious. I thought I'd like the Smooth Caffeinator the best, but I actually liked the All in Almond flavor far better.

I wish Lauren Fleshman would just sponsor me to run really crappy half marathons so that I could eat these bars for free... haha I guess that's not going to happen. People generally get sponsors for being particularly good at something, not particularly mediocre. 

This makes Day 3 of the Stretch for Seven Challenge. I still have this one annoying knot in my left quad that is causing me a great deal of pain when I foam roll. So annoying.

Today ended up being an unintentional rest day due to the fact I have an exam tonight (what am I doing blogging and not studying?!) and because I feel a little sick. I'm pretty sure Lillie and Lola may be the culprits... That's okay though, I forgive them because of their immense cuteness.

Have a good Wednesday evening and keep up the stretching!


  1. Uh-oh! You got sick too? Poor thing! I haven't gotten it, but I had to take Lola to the doctor today and she has a sinus infection. I hope you feel better soon! I think you got sick from us last time, too! Gee...we aren't much fun to visit, are we?

    1. No you're SO fun to visit. I actually have been depressed the past few days because being with you reminded me how much I hate school!! I love and miss you! Oh and please disregard the email my dad sent you. He is overly sensitive and needs to man up. haha :) xoxox

  2. Haha - I felt so bad when I realized I had e-mailed him back and not your mom. It gave me a good laugh though when I thought that first e-mail was from him. Tell him I know how much he loves you though and how he misses you when he's gone. Now I don't think he would enjoy decorating videos that much, though, so that should have tipped me off right away. =)
