Running Update and Free Coconut Water

by - Thursday, May 12, 2011

I love Thursdays. They're my last day in the office for the week, so they always feel like mini Fridays. I still have to work on Fridays, I just get to do it from home and don't have to worry about a commute.

So needless to say, when Thursday mornings roll around, I always have a smile on my face! Plus it's Three Things Thursday and I have a few fun updates to share!


1. Even though I told myself I was going to take this whole week off from running to let myself relax and recover from the race, I was so antsy after work yesterday that I wanted to run and burn off steam. I figured since I actually felt like I wanted to run, I would just go with it. I ran a short three miler and took it nice and easy. My legs for the most part felt OK, although I noticed a bit of tightness cropping up at the end. It was hot and sunny out yesterday, but the humidity wasn't too bad. It felt good to be moving after sitting and working all day. And I was in such a good mood when I got back home that I left my music on and danced around the house I was cleaning. It's a good thing none of my roommates were home to see my sweet dance moves. I was rockin' out hardcore.

2. I'm looking forward to this weekend for many reasons. First, Megan moved from Florida up to Maryland earlier this week and we'd talked tentatively about planning a run for sometime this weekend, which I think would be a blast. And also a new frozen yogurt place opened up and I am super excited to try it out. My frozen yogurt obsession is a little bit out of control and now that the weather is nice, I pretty much want it eat it as my three meals for the day. The fact that a fro-yo place just opened near my office a little while ago is not helping matters either.

3. GNC reached out to me a few days ago about doing a review of their coconut water. I'm pretty excited to try it out, since coconut water seems to be all the rage these days. I'm curious to see if it really lives up to the hype. GNC is also offering a coupon to try their Phenom coconut water for free. All you have to do is comment on their blog post about it. Since the coupon expires May 15, I wanted to let you all know about it even though I haven't done the review yet. Sorry I can't give you advice on which flavor to pick, but you'll have to let me know what you decide if you use the coupon.

Wishing you all a very happy Thursday!
