I Whip My Hair Back and Forth

It was a beautiful morning for a run here in Chicago, and a great day to try out my new shoes
Today was my long run, 5 miles! I haven’t run 5 miles since last February and with my ankle and knee bothering me, I was pretty nervous. I went out thinking, walk or run, just finish those 5 miles! Well, not going to lie, the first 3 were pretty rough and I had a side cramp that would just not go away. However, I ended up finishing very strong and feeling like I could keep going! I guess I just need to get through that initial hump. 
However, at 4.5 miles my earphone kept falling out, my playlist ran out, and then the wind kept whipping my sweaty ponytail into my face! (Hence the blog title… still can’t believe how young that girl is! I whip my hair back and forth, I whip my hair back and forth…). Anyone else have these frustrations?? 
Anyway, I finished the 5 miles in 45 minutes and 39 seconds, which put me at a 9:06 min/mile pace. I was pretty happy with that! When I got back and stretched and rolled out, and then it was time to eat! 
On the menu today was banana oats and a strawberry protein smoothie! The oats were made with 1/2 cup oats, 1/2 cup almond milk, 1/2 cup water and 1/2 a banana! (ate the other half before my run). 
The smoothie had 1 cup frozen strawberries, 1/2 cup almond milk and 1 scoop vanilla protein powder. Just like a strawberry milkshake! Although I must say, the smoothie without the banana in it was just not the same…

After getting some work done I decided to go to a Hot Yoga class. My shoulders were so sore from my workout with my trainer Friday and I knew it would also be great for my legs after my run this morning. When I got back it was time for lunch! 
I decided to make a giant salad with spinach, shredded carrots, cucumbers, chickpeas, mushrooms, sweet onion and some raspberry-infused balsamic vinegar! 
Hit the spot. Probably going to be making some Homemade Fruit on the Bottom Yogurt in a bit for dessert… Now it’s time for the last of my reading, figuring out lunch for the week, and relaxing in this beautiful weather! I hope you all are enjoying your Sunday, and for anyone on the East coast, stay safe and dry!
