I didn’t intend to take a hiatus. It just happened that way. I haven’t posted in nearly 10 days! What have I been doing?! Busy with this, that, and the other. Sometimes blogging takes a back burner to real life.
And I’ve been running, of course.
I finished up my base miles with the last several weeks between 30-35 miles, each. I’ve been able to check out some new trails, which is nice to break up the monotony. I hope to explore a little more in Boston training; of which I am in week 1!
I have also been logging all of miles through dailymile.com. I love this site! The numbers and graphs and weekly recaps are a Type A- girls dream! Love. This.
I also saw this week, that someone finally got it right! GU made a savory energy gel! Am I the last one to know about this?! Since my sudden disdain for all things energy gel, for my long runs/races, I have been sticking to the chomps, beans, and blocks; even an occasional peanut butter cracker. I have secretly hoped that one of these companies would produce an energy gel that wasn’t sweet. As much as I have a sweet tooth (or teeth), my tummy does not like sweet gels. So, when I saw this peanut butter gel, I bought it to try it out for my weekend long run. Luckily, peanut butter is my favorite thing EVER, aside from my boyfriend. If I like this, I’ll be buying stock.
The latest news this week is that Trader Joe’s is rumored to be coming to Boulder! We are all abuzz and all excited! To celebrate, I ate the last of my TJ Dark Chocolate Covered Caramels. Hope that rumor pans out, otherwise I’ll be soliciting for TJ care packages to those of you fortunate enough to live near one.
In unrelated news, I will be mostly on another hiatus, as I will be sunning myself in HAWAII next week! I will, of course, try to keep open blog communication between the two readers and myself. However, since one of those reader is my boyfriend, I make no promises to that other reader. Sorry Kanadia.
