This Run's a Muck

I don’t know what the deal is with my stomach, but it has been weird all afternoon! That did not make for a good run, but at least we went.

This afternoon, I had a green smoothie and it was my first time trying almond milk! I bought the original unsweetened this weekend to try in my green smoothies, and I loved the flavor!


  • 1 cup Almond Breeze
  • 1/2 banana (the other half went into my breakfast cookie this morning)
  • 2-3 cups spinach
  • 1/2 Tbsp ground flax

The almond milk made such a difference in the flavor of the smoothie compared to when I’ve made it with skim milk. I don’t know that I can buy it every week, but I think I’ve converted to almond milk, at least in my smoothies. Yum.

I got all my stuff done this afternoon and our system was fixed, thank goodness, so it didn’t slow us down for too long. For some reason, I was starving this afternoon. I didn’t anything else to snack on, so I waited until I got home, grabbed some mixed nuts, and headed over to the chiropractor. 

Great news! I’m doing really great after everything with the accident! She had to do one adjustment, but I didn’t even need the electrode therapy today. That made me pretty happy – I guess I’m getting all back to normal.

Since I got back earlier than we thought I would, we went out for a longer run than normal – we have that 10K race on Saturday and wanted to get one longer run in this week to stretch out. I ran a little over 5 miles, and Nick ran 6. My stomach was still strange the entire time, so I ran slower than normal to keep from getting cramps. At least the weather was nice, right? I am excited for the race this weekend, though. It should be fun to do our first 10K Trail Run together and it’s 2 days before Nick’s birthday!

I’m glad we had some leftovers in the fridge – it was 8 pm before we ate dinner!


For some reason, my pictures won’t load? We had more of the pasta from last night – I mixed mine with some of roasted broccoli and some olive oil.

I promise to post the brownie recipe this week – I was going to tonight, but I’m having some computer issues, but they’ll have to wait.


Don’t you love computers?  :)


  1. I do the almond milk thing too since I’m intolerant to milk, soy milk is not so hot for your thyroid and hormones, and since rice milk tastes so blah. I’m so interested in your smoothie…and may just have to try it with almond milk!

  2. Sorry about your stomach – but glad your injuries are healing!!

    I just signed up for a 10K in August — it seems so much more doable than 10 miles or a half marathon!
