The weekend's fun started out with a blue moon hike with the runners at Mt. Pisgah. Along with headlamps, everyone brings food/drink to enjoy at the top.
About 30 people showed up. A small group ran the back loop to the top and the rest of us hiked up the steep summit trail (1.4 mi). Party at the top!
Saturday morning, I woke up a bit exhausted and still sick (gah), but knew I needed (mentally anyway) to get in one last long run before the McKenzie River 50K. I had my eye on the Ridgeline Trail so that's where I went.
While my hamstrings hadn't seen hills in a few weeks, they happily complied. And it was a BEAUTIFUL morning to be on the trails so I couldn't complain.
Naturally, I busted out the I Heart Sweat shirt.
2 hours 7 min later - 12 miles of trail done
Sunday, I met the running group for another glorious run, although I ran most of it on my own. The temperature here these days is perfect - sunny with a cool breeze.
And today, Lindsey and I met for a scenic bike ride and some chatting (about her recent engagement)!
We chatted and rode about 40 miles.
My favorite at home meal this weekend was my post ride blueberry protein smoothie!
Ingredients: 1/3 cup frozen blueberries and 1 banana, 1 c spinach, 1/2 scoop protein powder, 1 Tbsp almond butter, 2 scoops plain nf yogurt, 1/2 cup almond milk, dash of cinnamon and shredded coconut for the top.
The manfriend is currently putting together a new bookshelf we just picked up. Happy Labor Day to him! ;) Our Fred Meyer (aka Krogers in other parts) was having a buy 1, get 1 sale so we got a tall bookshelf and then a short one for free.
Now it's time for me to remind myself that it is taper time - no overdoing it this week! Did you do anything fun for your long weekend? Anyone else score on labor day sales?
