a GUUUUUUoood Day
Besides this fantastic weather that we are having up north - it is close to 70 today!, Fed Ex came to bring me a big box of GU treats which today made my day. Last week or so when thinking about what I was doing for fuel during long runs and the marathon, I shared that I was boycotting GU since I contacted them to try their new things and no one returned my inquiry. Well! Then - I received a comment from Devon who is part of the PR team for GU who then sent me all of these treats: Roctane GU (haven't tried it yet and the pineapple flavor is caffeine free!, GU Chomps, Recovery drink, electrolyte drink AND the most exciting flavor that I can't wait to "eat" - Vanilla Gingerbread. YUM!! I am now looking forward to my long run this weekend so that I can try all of these GUs! Stay tuned to hear about the different flavors and products!
And - I will definitely share and throw a GU or 2 into my fall giveaway - so make sure you enter!
Today swimming went like this -
4:38 am - looking at the clock. Alarm usually goes off at 4:40. Turn off alarm.
4:48am - Should I go? My arm kind of hurts from the flu shot yesterday. I start doing strokes in bed. Ehhh... I'll get up at 4:50. Maybe I could use some extra sleep. Should I skip it today? Hmm.. If I skip it, I'll have to work out during Nick's nap this morning. Maybe I can suck it up and just go.
4:55 - up and out of bed. It was a decent workout. I was thinking driving home about the privacy issues that DC Running Mama was dealing with, and how I shouldn't write anything I wouldn't one someone that I swim with (hardly know anyone) to read. But - I'll tell you, a fast chick came back from having the flu and it was SOo nice without her. She changes the set and cheats - what is the point?? I swam in her lane today and it wasn't thrillingly enjoyable. With her not there, there was a nice happy medium. But - that's all I'll say. Hopefully she won't find my blog.
Happy sunshiney day!
