Saturday although I had to work I still got a little more than 3 miles in that morning. I ran from work to the Heinz Field parking lot where the tents were set up for the Making Strides For Breast Cancer 5K which was taking place that morning. I stopped by, said hi to a few people from work, and jogged back to the office. Round trip it was 3.11 miles according to Map My Run (an awesome website, which tells you the mileage no matter how convoluted the route).
Yesterday I got maybe a 1/2 mile in tops... I jogged to McDonald's for breakfast, and then strolled home - I figure the jogging there justifies the McGriddle consumed. AND THEN... my Steelers beat those silly Brownies... YAY!!!!!!! A good weekend all around.
An Evaluation of Mid-Workout Energy Products
GU is disgusting and I never want to try it again; about the consistency of honey it caused me to gag just trying to finish one.
Honey Stingers are awesome, organic, and taste super yummy! Available in flavors such as orange, cherry and pomegranate, they are my favorite by far. AND to top it off they hail from Steamboat Springs, CO!
I have personally not tried Bloks yet, after the warning one of the guys at REI gave Alyssa it made me a bit weary (if you don't drink lots of water with your Bloks then they will literally block you up!). Alyssa has tried them and quite enjoys them - especially the Margarita flavor.
(I buy all my energy products at REI, not just because I'm a member there, but also because they have an awesome selection. Not that they're paying me to say that, I just like them that much!)
