Running Music

I hope you’re having a good Wednesday!

With the weather being so nice today in Columbia I knew I wanted to get out of the house and soak in some sun. I decided to head back to the Riverwalk this morning for a run to start my day off right. I decided to listen to my iPod instead of Pandora on my phone since my phone died 5 minutes into my run yesterday…. I was not happy. 

I find listening to music really helps me push through a run and distracts me when I start to get tired. So here are a couple songs that I liked listening to today.

Because The Night (Manian Bootleg Cut) Cascada

Shut Up And Kiss Me. Reece Mastin

Once I got home I grabbed half of  the black cherry nonfat Chobani yogurt I bought yesterday for a post workout snack.

I added flax seeds and raspberries to the yogurt to give it some texture. I’m not a fan of the consistency Greek yogurt has by itself. 

One last thing I thought I would share with you is the healthy dessert I made last night! After eating a salad with shrimp and tomato soup, I was craving something yummy. So here you go….

Mini Frozen Banana Peanut Butter Sandwiches 🙂

I found this simple idea on Pinterest. What would I do without that addicting website! I used the honey roasted peanut butter from Whole Foods which made them taste amazing! When frozen it made them taste like peanut butter ice-cream.

If you decide to make them yourself let me know what you think!

Running at the Riverwalk

After waking up this morning I felt like getting some exercise and getting outside for a little while. I laced up my running shoes, grabbed a banana and my iPod and drove across the bridge in Columbia to the Riverwalk.

The Riverwalk is so pretty which makes the run more enjoyable, and it also challenges me because the path isn’t flat like running on a treadmill!

After 40 minutes at the Riverwalk I got some grocery shopping done at Whole Foods. I could probably spend all day in that place, everything looks so good, I always want to buy everything! I picked up some greek yogurt, soup, baby spinach for salads, and frozen shrimp. I can’t wait to put the shrimp on top of my salads, yumm.

As of now, I am looking over BodyPump 84 choreography while eating a healthy snack of raspberries and celery with peanut butter. Instead of team teaching BodyPump with another instructor I will be instructing by myself this semester. I am super excited and can’t wait to start teaching again when Christmas break is over!

The peanut butter is from Whole Foods. I used one of the small machines to get fresh honey roasted peanut butter……and it is DELICIOUS. If you have never tried it I highly recommend it!

Have a great day!
