4 Miles. Boom! April 10, 2011

The Ragnar Relay is just five days away! I definitely don’t want to have ‘dead legs’ (which sometimes happens to me when I don’t run for a few days), so this week, I want to make sure I do a couple of miles each day. Not too much, but just enough to get the blood moving and my legs ready.

This morning I had a banana and some peanut butter and headed out the door. It was PERFECT weather, low 50s, cool breeze. Ideal for running, although it did warm up towards the end.

I had trance music pumping through my ipod (Fun Fact: I love Trance and Techno music!) and I just enjoyed the run.

While Running, I….

…ran past Warner Brothers Studios (I love living in LA!) and I saw a poster for the 40th Anniversary DVD release of A Clockwork Orange. Wow, 40 years? It’s a strange movie, but I really liked it!

…freaked out when I thought a pit bull was chasing me (it turned out to just be a white lab who wanted to play).

…realized that I really like the dresses the lady in the T-Mobile billboards is wearing.

In the end, I ran a little over four miles, but I stopped the Garmin right at 4.00 because I really like round numbers.

I really felt like I could have run another 3-4 miles, but I was happy to finish strong knowing I had more in the tank. I hope that’s the case next week during the race too!

YAY Sweat! Ew!

I was excited to try some Coconut Water today. I hear the electrolytes in it help hydrate you better than water can. And I love all things coconut, so I thought I would love it.

Turns out, not so much. It had a strange smell that I couldn’t get over. I drank half and gave the rest to Irving. So sad, I really wanted to love it.


Maybe I’d like it better if it was served out of an actual coconut with a straw. Yes. This looks much better.


Have a great Sunday!

    Great run! I like to dilute my coconut water down by just adding it to a bottle of water. I notice such a difference in my recovery when I rehydrate with the stuff, but agree that the taste can be strong on its own.

  2. I love coconut water! Definitely one of my favorite post workout drinks! Can’t wait to hear about Ragner!

    Don’t give up on the coconut water unless you’ve tried other brands or some of the flavored versions. VitaCoco Pineapple is my favorite and Naked Foods plain is good, too. I actually used coconut water during the 2010 LAM.
