Three Things Thursday

These are three things I’ve learned this week.

1. I love protein shakes, or green monsters, or whatever you want to call them. I call them “a scoop of Pure Protein Cookies and Crème protein power, 1/2 cup of Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze, 1/2 banana, a handful of spinach, and crushed ice.”

I know that’s a long name. People usually stop listening to me at “protein powder.”

I also love my magic bullet. And that's not a euphemism, you perv.

2. Covering up a bruised toenail does not make the bruised toenail better. (I thought that was polish at first and kept trying to take it off.)

How to Draw More Attention to Your Monkey Toe 101

Don’t worry, I have an obscene amount of nail polish to cover it up again.

3. I seriously have a lot to learn when it comes to fueling for a race.  (Thanks for the article, Tiff)

What have YOU learned this week? And if it’s anything good about running, tell me now please because I have another race coming up in a week.

  1. That looks tasty – do you have it for breakfast or a post-run snack? I’m assuming I can use milk instead of the fancy almond stuff. I try to buy as much locally as I can, and I don’t think almond milk is produced in these here parts. (:

    Thanks for the link. I thought it was interestinge that the author suggested a smoothie with milk and went on to say how milk doesn’t bother the stomach. Mine is made of iron, but I know a lot of people have GI issues with dairy products during runs.

    Is that the reason for the almond milk? (:

    PS Happy anniversary!
    PPS My favorite nail polish colors are “I’m really not a waitress” and “Pompeii purple”!

    Whyfore spinach in the mix? Just curious.

  3. Pretty sure my toe started looking like that on my other foot and it’s not about 3 shades darker. Swweet!

    I tried to make a green monster one time and I failed miserably. I think I need to get better ingredients to mix with it and try it again

    • ps- not = now
      pps- I tried to post this reply and it said that I was posting comments too fast and that I need to slow down. Haha

      • Hilarious! Don’t listen to WordPress. I want you to speed up! 🙂 Those shakes are so good. Even the Hubs is drinking them every day with me and he gave me the doubtful eye when he saw it was green too. Plus, giving up sugar this week…it’s the only sweet thing I got!

  4. Intervals!!! Man…I thought running straight through a 6 miler was ideal but I was a sweatier beast when I did bursts of fast speeds combined with slower periods.

  5. That is one super bruised toenail! Man!

    This week I learned how to balance a cup of water on my knuckles while doing turkish get ups.
