Lärabar– Mmmm, so tasty! I get these every once in a while and usually reserve them for a running treat since a lot of them taste very much like a dessert. Well, I was running low on my normal stock of running nutrition and grabbed the Cherry Pie flavour Lärabar out of my bag and it was delicious. I love pretty much anything with cherries in it and this did not disappoint. It’s amazing how the almonds made it actually taste like pie. The only ingredients are: dates, almonds, unsweetened cherries. (All Lärabars have no additives and simple ingredients.) I know this is random (and I was not asked to review them or anything) I just thought it may be useful for you.
Heart Rate Monitor – If you’ve been following my blog for a while you’ll know every once in a while I post about how I’m waiting to purchase a Garmin. I’m big on, “if I do x…than I can buy y.” A Garmin is a big “y” so I haven’t completed my big “x” to attain it yet. No I’m not telling you what it is right now, haha. What would be the fun in just buying one?
At any rate, I’ve still wanted to have a hrm because I think it will be beneficial in training. The other day someone told me they had purchased one and don’t use it anymore and they’d be happy to pass it on to me. Yay! I just need to replace the battery and then I’ll be good to go. I don’t think it does calories burned but I don’t really care about that since it’s a mathematical equation I can figure that part out myself. I’m certainly excited to test out my new toy!
Gear – When I was out shopping I was looking for a new pair of runners since two of mine are getting up there. I had no luck (I’ll probably just order online from somewhere) but I DID score a pair of shorts (now my total is up to a whopping two pairs.) I also grabbed a running jacket that’s waterproof and I cannot wait to test it out either.
This past week my running schedule was skewed so it’s back to my regular schedule and blogging starting tomorrow. I also wanted to let you know that I have added some things to my about page and answered a question someone posted there. I hope you all enjoyed the weekend!
