|Happy to be finished our long run, just goofing around!|
With the holidays and then a busy January with the Mickey Marathon in the middle of the month, I totally forgot to try my new toy. Yesterday was the day after a nearly 9 mile long run. I had kale and strawberries in the refrigerator and frozen blueberries in the freezer and added those together with my protein powder and organic milk. It blended perfectly and was a more tasty and better blended beverage than I have been able to make in my ordinary blender. My favorite feature is the container used to make the shakes. It doubles as a beverage container when you switch out the blade base for a drink top. Unlike my ordinary blender, you do not have separate parts to wash, just two items. I also have a smoothie recipe book and I will be trying out new things in the weeks to come. Plenty of my running friends use these smoothies as meal replacements, but because I like food, that might not be an option for me! Now to our workouts for the week:

Finally, I am including little Lulu in the workout recap. Our weather was gorgeous yesterday and she walked for 30 minutes, maybe longer and proceeded to collapse on a chair in the sun after returning home, Then she demanded dinner 15 minutes early. Of course I gave in to the little beast and gave her a little extra. She wore herself out walking around the lake in the neighborhood!
