Today started out early for me, 4am Early! I had an airport drop off and decided I would head to the 5:30am Bootcamp at Beantown for today’s Hills and Drills. It was running the Beacon Hill Hills ( 4 of them) for a specific set of time, with a drill in between. I always need a solid PUSH to get to the hills, so this class helps motivate me, and I was either 1. Deliriously tired or 2. Insanely motivated that I stayed for two rounds of the hills, for a total of 24 Hills. My legs were shaky by the end and my speed was not pretty but I covered about 8 miles of solid hills without having a heart attack ( which I felt like was a possibility!)I also deviated from my Pineapple flavor of choice SKRATCH and tried the Raspberry flavor and loved it! Skratch is great because it’s made from real fruit and real fruits sugars, so yes it has more calories ( but they are real calories!) and it also has carbohydrates to give you that extra umph you need when pushing your body to the max. Core Power was chugged legit seconds upon finishing as I was starving!
I am 110% addicted to candy, and typically okay with that, but with summer and attempting some big races this fall ( Spartan Beast , 100 on 100, Reach the Beach, Marine Corps Marathon ) I am “trying” to watch the 7am Gummy Bear and Star Burst Consumption. I mentioned HERE that I stopped into this store earlier this week for some healthy inspiration! I picked up this Gluten Free Granola and tried it this morning! It was fantastic, I loved it, and ended up eating it straight from the bag.
Tomorrow is one of my sisters birthdays!You can wish her a happy birthday week- I’ll pass it along! last night we got to celebrate the kick off to her birthday with a little Mexican party! She loves Mexican food, it’s great for large families, and the kids were in amazing moods, so really it was a perfect night. Plus there was cake! I again attempted a “healthier cake” option and we went with the fruit tort cake, and it was a huge hit! ( * not sure how healthy is actually is, but it has fruit on it, so it’s got to be healthy right?!?).
