I’ve been anxiously awaiting the arrival of replacement headphones all week with the goal of getting back into a workout routine this weekend. I am determined to be as obsessed with running as I was when I lived Dallas. As a tribute/motivator, I created a playlist similar to what I would have ran to during that time.
I charged the headphones, imported the playlist into the Personal Running Trainer app, and prepared a pre-running snack: a dab of peanut butter, a smaller dab of jelly, and a teaspoon of… wait for it… BEE POLLEN! My friend Adam told me about the uber long list of bee pollen health benefits earlier in the week and ever since I’ve been upping my daily intake.
The snack, playlist, and running app worked together seamlessly to keep me motivated during the entire 45 minute trek. I was really pleased with the app minus one thing – nothing signaled mid-way through the workout that I should turn around (next time I’ll pay attention to what song hits around 20 min).
When I got home, I made another new-to-me breakfast. Check back tomorrow for the recipe!
