Coming down off my euphoric feelings regarding yesterday's epic W8D1 run, tonight's run was a let down. My knees didn't feel that great from the very beginning, and my usual first ten minutes of struggle lasted the entire 35 minutes I kept plodding along. Instead of that effortless feeling of being able to keep jogging forever, today I wanted to finish with every step I took. Furthermore, I left the house too late and ended up trekking back home in the dark. Not a stellar run, but, as always, I'm glad I did it.
The other upside of this run is that, after adding the appropriate activity points, this is what the top of my points tracker looks like: I know it's only in the "orange" so to speak by .5 points, but it is much more comforting than that angry red from before. Also, I still have Tuesday and Wednesday to keep it going before my next weigh-in.
In other news, tomorrow morning I'm experimenting with a new Green Monster. This time, I'm going to try it with strawberries and kiwi instead of blueberries! Hopefully, this is equally if not more yummy. Stay tuned!
