Monday: Columbus erased my Garmin…..

Today was a holiday for me.  So I let myself sleep in for just a bit and then went out for my 5 mile run.  The plan for this week is something like: 5-6-4-10.  But there is also a 3 mile trail run on Saturday that the sister and I are planning to do. So should that be a substitute for my 4 miler?   I will definitely get the 10 done BEFORE the trail run.  Trails here are very different than what I am used to.  So I don’t want it to impact the long run.

Things felt ok today.  Hips are still a bit sore from the weekend.  I also made it to the NEW gym for the first time and worked on legs.

Run: 5miles / 58:32

Michael used my Garmin yesterday.  And he didn’t mean to, but he  ended up wiping out my 5k time.  So here is my only proof (other than the actual race results).  I share it here for historical purposes.  Actual race results were 28:27, 19th overall female and 45th overall finisher.  I believe 137 did the 5k.  I think Columbus made him do it.

I am back in a boring meal rut.  I tried to do strawberry overnight oats for today but they did not turn out.  Too much milk I think.  So I went back to a protein bar instead.  Then I had some carrots with a homemade dip that is supposed to be like the Outback Blooming Onion sauce.  It needs cayenne.  An easy fix.   Lunch was egg beaters, turkey sausage and an english muffin.  Then a nectarine.  And dinner was ribeye steak, sweet potato fries and more of the sauce.

I am waiting for the miracle that is a probiotic supplement.  I bought some today after struggling this week with some stomach issues.  And struggling for about a year and a half with other various dairy issues.  Everyone says the supplement will help.  So I am more than willing to give it a try.  I am not really sure how long it will take to see a difference.

Do you take any vitamins?  What about supplements?  I take a multi-vitamin pack with energy from Costco and biotin.  And now a probiotic.
