Hey guys, I wanted to post some of the awesome deals I’ve seen around the web this month! I’ll share more as I come across them, and feel free to post your own in the comments below!
– PRO Compression marathon socks, calf sleeves, low socks in baby blue and purple are currently on sale for 40% off and free shipping (code SOMF4, good through April 30)! SkinnyRunner’s post yesterday alerted me to the sale, so I picked up a pair of low running socks as soon as I saw the email this morning :) PRO Compression is donating $1 for each pair of marathon socks purchased to Team in Training or Train 4 Autism – how awesome is that?
I’ll soon be covering up my unsightly runner feet with these!
– Navy-Air Force Half Marathon and 5 Miler registration just opened yesterday, and you can use PT365 or 13EBird for $5 off till April 20. Run and do a little sightseeing in DC! I’m really tempted to sign up for this one. I think I’ll either run this or the VHTRC Women’s Trail Half Marathon in September.
– 3 miles on treadmill, last two miles at tempo (~9:00 pace)
– Total Body Supersets from PBFingers (didn’t get to Superset 5)
I tried running with my new Garmin Footpod for the first time today (birthday gift!).
Sorry for the crappy shot – you guys deserve so much better =P
I’m semi-obsessed with my running stats and keeping track of my workouts, so I wanted the footpod so I could record my treadmill workouts as well as my outdoor runs. The pod was really easy to attach to my shoelaces, but I have to say, it felt a little weird to put on my GPS watch and head to the gym! The pod was not very accurate for me – by the end of the run, it was off by 0.15 miles from the treadmill distance. Luckily, it is very easy to calibrate so I’ll fix that first thing tomorrow!
I think you guys know by now I don’t really “invent” recipes. I cook a lot, but I always look up recipes rather than try to come up with something on my own. The closest I get to coming up with a recipe is looking at what I have lying around, and tossing stuff together in reasonable-looking combinations. So this is that kind of recipe. That said, I really loved the addition of Greek yogurt to hot oatmeal! It lended a tanginess and creaminess to the oatmeal that made it much more interesting. Give it a try!
The ingredients – minus the Greek yogurt. I think my sister stole the rest ;)
Did I mention how much I love almond butter right now? I tried it for the first time when I went home to NY and I’m adding it to everything!
I chose to sprinkle my chia seeds on top for a little crunch, but next time, I’ll mix it in with the milk, oatmeal and apples for a thicker oatmeal! Enjoy!
Are you creative in the kitchen, or do you tend to stick with “tried and true” recipes?
Know of any great running/ fitness-related deals going on? Please share :)
