When I got home from work I changed in record time. The weather today was GORGEOUS. My car temperature gauge said 67 degrees! Sweet! That meant I can wear shorts on my run since well, I have zero maternity running clothes. In and out in a flash I was on my way. I decided to go the same 3 mile hilly route I ran last Sunday. I can't help it, it is really pretty and we're in the market for patio furniture and this run allows me to peek into a lot of backyards along the way. Not creepy, just curious.
What is the first thing I encounter on my run? Turkeys!
Yeah yeah yeah, they look small in the photo but trust me, they were HUGE. Luckily there was a nice barbed wire fence separating us. El Dorado Hills turkeys are HUGE compared to Sacramento ones.
I did giggle when I saw them however as it brought back old times running with Pigeon. My first mile (which was some flat and down hill sections) was actually a 10:30 pace. However then my belly seized up and I resorted to walking quite a bit after that. I think my water intake was low today. I need to work on that when I get busy at work.
The rest of the run/walk was wonderful. Temperature was great and very little car traffic. Just me and my thoughts. Happy to get my run in I came home and started baking up a storm. Gluten free brownies (Peanut loves them), Gluten free cinnamon protein bread and a great meal using TVP (textured vegetable protein), beans, brown rice, tomatoes, chili, garlic and cayenne pepper. It was yummy. I accomplished all of this before Vans and the Peanut got home.
The Peanut has been having too many potty accidents at school this week. As an incentive I promised her ice cream after school if she could go the entire day without an accident. Since Vans and I did the old switch-a-roo with pickup, I had to tell him that if she was accident free he had to take her for ice cream. While I was cooking dinner I received the following:
That looks like . . .
could it be?
Small victories all around today for the Trailmomma family!
