Slowly but surely, running is back. It felt good to get in two 30 minute runs this week. This picture was taken after my Monday run. I would have take a pic after my morning run today (#teamshorts) but I was busy being accosted by my dog and the pooch we are dog sitting. . Have a great day! .
If it’s not on strava...did it ever happen?! . A popular saying here on the social media/running malarkey thingy-me-bob, I’ve done it a few times in the past, went running without my watch, or strava on my phone for various reasons - usually forgetting to charge the bliddy things #alzheimers 🙄 . I had a social media break earlier in the year and it felt great not even going out and taking a damn selfie for The ‘Gram - tech free, taking running back to the roots of why I do it - to run, simple as that! . At work there’s times I’m alone in my thoughts with no one to talk to, nature of the job unfortunately, so I think about EVERYTHING, since not running for a few days I thought about....running actually 😂 I thought about another break away, I thought about not using the tech, I thought about going back to roots, I thought about one of my favourite runs - this one here - in the snow, I got lost, there was a blizzard, I had a selfie stick to beat off wild bears 🐻 I did around 15 miles this day, and I couldn’t even record most of it because of battery life on the devices I had - it was bliddy awesome! . So, sometime soon I’ll be giving this another blast, going back to the roots of why I do it - the fun, for me, nothing else, almost like resetting the timer on my running journey....👊🏼 . You should give it a go 🤗 . Might even take my selfie stick with me..... 😆
More from the box of stuff @leydenssportsnutrition and @lsnreviews sent me for honest feedback as part of their #lsnreview initiative. I was back on the Pro2Go by @scimx and expecting big things. Chilli flavour bakes and apple & cinnamon #protein bar. Again there's a pic of the #macros included for easy reference. Again the bar was top class. Just marginally less tasty than the Blueberry & white chocolate but not enough to lose marks. 22g of protein packed in to this one. Again the texture and chewiness were perfect. I could honestly have a new favourite bar. Another 5 stars. The protein bakes seemed nicer than the last ones. A slightly nicer flavour, a bit crunchier and not as dry. Still a bit too much salt for my liking but I'd up the score for these to 4 stars. Two good snacks with a couple more flavours of bar left to try 😍😍 #sportsnutrition#nutrition#proteinbar#irishfitfam#fitfam#irishrunner#runningdad#runningman#glutenfree#snacks#marathonrunner#healthyliving#healthyeating#healthylife#healthychoices
