Monday: Fact…we meet to run at 5:30am on Mondays. Fact…we start and finish at Starbucks.
I joined friends for 6 miles and added 3 more solo miles.
I had the yummiest post-run apricot!
Caroline thought I should be rubbing her belly instead of folding laundry. She couldn’t be bothered to put her tongue in her mouth for her picture.
You guys!!! I made a new chocolate banana nice cream. It rocks my socks! I’ll post the recipe soon!! P.S. I ate the entire batch and called it dinner.
I went to Fleet Feet for the Zooma Nashville course reveal run and party!
I joined these ladies for 3 miles, cupcakes, and champagne! Use discount code: EMILY15 when you register HERE!!
I made sure to do my track prep before I went to bed. Picky Bar, Gu, Cocogo (discount code: JENCHOOSESJOY all caps),and my splits.
My workout…(spoiler alert: it kicked my butt)
4 mile warmup
9 x 400m (60 second recovery) Goal: 1:37 Actual: 1:38, 1:37, 1:37, 1:36, 1:36, 1:37, 1:37, 1:38, 1:34
1 mile cool down
My legs were super heavy. I could really tell that I ran a 50k 10 days ago. I managed to hit most of my splits, but it was a LOT harder than it should have been.
I couldn’t wait to shower and put on my Pro Compression socks!!!! I don’t run in compression socks, but I LOVE them for recovery! They’re like a hug for tired, sore legs.
I used to wear compression sleeves for recovery. Pro Compression helped me to understand why compression socks are the better option for recovery. Read about it HERE!

We opted for vegan taco salads for dinner. We even used Tofutti “sour cream” and liked it!!!

This giveaway is sponsored by Pro Compression. I was given product in exchange for this giveaway. All opinions are my own.
Anyone else celebrate have tacos for Taco Tuesday? What are your favorite toppings? I love beans, corn, mushrooms, and tofu.
Have you tried Tofutti sour cream? Thoughts? We’re slowly tried to sub dairy products for vegan alternatives.
Do you run in compression socks or sleeves? Do you use them for recovery?
