After a bit of a sleep-in this morning (till almost 8:30!) The Captain and I enjoyed a leisurely breakfast and a then after a bit of a wait, we headed out for a run. I decided that we should go late morning so that we could just have lunch after our stretch instead of having a protein drink and delaying lunch a couple of more hours.
It is a gorgeous day here on the Island... blue skies and the temperature is about 18C right now which translates to just under 70F... perfect for running along the Strait. And I must admit to loving seeing all the dogs playing in the off-leash area at this time of day, too.
So... a shuffle, yes... it was 3.35 km in just over 25 minutes, but I am not going to complain! It has been a couple of weeks since I ran at all so it was wonderful to just get out there.
I remembered to make us a Drip Drop drink to split before we went out. This medical grade rehydration powder makes such a difference for me in how I recover but I do wish it didn't have so much sugar in it. Is that a necessary part of it's magic?
I like the taste of this... not salty at all, and not fizzy either... but I cannot purchase it in Canada and DRIP DROP has cancelled their ambassador program in Canada so they won't be sending me any more of it. I have also not seen it in the stores when I travel to the U.S. so have not been able to purchase it on my own either.
I am open to suggestions for another brand if you have one you particularly like.
