Failed already.

I think I jinxed myself yesterday. I was so proud of myself for being 3 (almost 4) days into my running streak and then I failed. I had planned on getting a run in before my social commitments last night, but then work got crazy and I had to rush from the office to the meeting spot just in time to take off. I never got my run in. :( At least now I've learned a very good lesson in getting up early and getting my run out of the way. No more putting it off till the end of the day when I know I have plans. So now I'm back to day 1 of my streak: 10 mile long run with the group. Great morning for a run around Houston!

And I came home to a green smoothie! Ok, so it's not that green, but that's because the mocha protein powder brown color really took over. It was definitely much yummier than yesterdays smoothie with apple. Apple does not belong in smoothies! It does funky things to the texture and makes it all gritty.

I even enjoyed it in my running pint glass (and matching straw!)
Run Streak Day 1, Green Smoothie Streak Day 2

Let's see how long I can keep this up!


  1. Love green smoothies. Favorite is half an avocado, spinach, and milk, and banana with a drizzle of agave. tasty!

    Good luck n your running streak. I'm on a walking streak... So we'll see how that goes.r

  2. I had a similar issue yesterday. I was planning on running in the evening but then heavy rains and tornado warning hit our area. But I went out there and hoped I survive. I did several loops around the house and made it for 1 mile :) Good luck with your streak!

  3. I'm doing green smoothies this month, too! So far so good--it's easier than I thought it would be and I feel so virtuous putting all that spinach into the blender....

  4. mmm mocha protein powder this sounds like a good plan!
