Thursday Thoughts: March 5

Thursday already!  First things first, I want to congratulate my little sister, Kristen, she PR’d by 9 minutes at the Little Rock Half Marathon last weekend!!  She is super speedy, I’m amazed and inspired by her every day!  Congrats speedy sisser!

I totaled up my February running totals and wrote a little post about it.  I like being able to quickly look back on each months and see my progress and also to see where I need to improve.  Also last week, James and I went to the Frontier Justice shooting range.  You can read about that here.

The weather has been mild and sunny, then cold and rainy, and back to sunny and cold.  I’m so ready for spring! I can’t wait until the time changes this weekend.  I wish I didn’t lose an hour of sleep (I do love my sleep), but I am looking forward to being able to run after work and it still be light out!

Last weekend I tried out Energy Bits for my long run.  My long run didn’t end up being too long… I ran on the treadmill, and just couldn’t push myself past 6 miles on Sunday.  I am not sure what to think of Energy Bits yet.  I will write a review once I try the remainder of my samples, but I’m not convinced yet.  I’d love to know if you have tried Energy Bits, and what you think of them! I have about 45 bits left to try out.

Momma sent me this the other day, and I love it! I came up with my mantra “With Brave Wings She Runs” from this phrase, “With Brave Wings She Flies,” read my story about “My Brave Wings” here.  Thanks Mom!

Tuesday night, I went to my third KCRC speed night.  I like to go to the Groupies runs on Thursdays, and will try to add one or two speed nights per month, on Tuesdays, with the Groupies.  Amy and I tackled some hills, and I can tell you, even today, my butt and shins are a bit sore.  Add that to my sore shoulders from yoga, and I’m a mess! It’s a good sore though, progress! 

I’m really excited to go to the KCRC Groupies Martin City run with Amy tonight! It will be a special group run in Martin City, MO, followed by pizza and beer at Martin City Brewing Co., sponsored by Nathan Sports!

Are you ready for the time change this Sunday?

Have you tried Energy Bits? If so, how did you like them?

  1. Nope, never tried Energy Bits. I’m mostly a GU person with occasional energy chews of whatever brand. I am willing to give up an hour if it means I have enuf light in the evenings to run outside again. So very tired of the treadmill.

    • I have not yet tried gu. I have a couple, but I haven’t been brave enough to try! I am scared they will be too sickly sweet or something. Perhaps this weekend I will give it a shot finally!
