Dear For Those Of You Up North:
PLEASE stop hogging all of the cold weather and send some down here!
Chloe (and the rest of Florida)
Yes, it's been very hot and humid here. So much so that I've been getting mad on the long runs. Seriously. This is what my car said this morning - at 4:30:
I really wanted to punch something (or someone) when I saw that. Thankfully this morning it was overcast - BUT STILL! It's freaking OCTOBER! I really hope it cools down from IMFL in three weeks! Ok. I'm down with my rant about mother nature.
BUT I have been loving coconut water. What? You've never heard of it? It is probably the best recovery drink ever. I'm not huge on sugary goodness (aka Gatorade) - so this is right down my alley. These bad boys are chalk full of potassium with nothing artificial. Just 100% coconut water. There are several brands out there - but so far all of them have been just fine with me. If you have not tried it - grab one (available at health food stores)and enjoy it after a long hard workout.
Here is the current selection in the fridge:
In 'healthy habit' news:
My week of revving up my training and eating healthy - I have not felt better! The salad thing worked like a champ and I really think taking iron supplements have really helped with my energy level. So - if you are at wal-mart, pick one of those salad guys up. Well worth the $5.00!!
Good luck to everyone racing in Kona and Chicago this weekend!
