Come on, look at that wonderful modeling job for my north face tank and nike tempo shorts. Plus a blue hair band from Goody ala CVS?
But guess what. All those reviews WORKED on me DANGIT!!! I humbly admit that I loved the purple tank and hot pink sports bra ala Skinny Runner, that I wound up buying it myself. I'm a fool. A fashion loving, fun running, fool. Maybe I should name my blog that.
Yet I digress.
I ran my first run of my half marathon training program. IT STUNK. I'm sorry to use such foul language, but omg. Here is what I ran in.
Grossssss. It was also not cloudy, p.s.
3 miles in that made me feel like I was going to die. Not because I don't know how to run, its because I chose to run it at 1 p.m. on a 90 degree day. I had to stop a couple of times in the shade so that I wouldn't pass out before I got back. But once I did, brother, oh man, I chugged gatorade and water like it was my job. Which it is, by the way. Its my job to stay alive!
So after a few minutes of wondering whether or not I was going to pass out, I decided to check out the last of my Gotein protein powder shake that I won from a giveaway done by Jess at Blonde Ponytail.
Previously, I had tried the vanilla and chocolate versions and loved those. I just wish I had used colder water and actually taken pictures of my experience. This time I had the strawberry version. I also added a little almond milk to see if I could get it to taste like Strawberry Quik.
As you can tell by the consistency of the above photo, it did not mix well when stirred in a water/almond milk combo job instead of just shaking it into a water bottle. It also did not in fact taste like Strawberry Quik. More like, Pepto Bismol. I wound up dumping it out in the sink. I think I'll be sticking to the Vanilla and Chocolate versions from now on, because those actually tasted good. As good a protein powder will ever taste.
