juice to the rescue

I had the most vivid dream last night.

I ran a 1/2 marathon on an indoor track and PR’d.

I’ve only run one 1/2 marathon and it wasn’t on an indoor track.  I’m not signed up for races, and am not even running right now.  Maybe it was something to do with waiting to see the finish line with all the painting?  Who knows!

Either way, when I woke up, I felt like I had run a marathon.  I could have slept for hours more, but needed to start my day!  My body felt tired, but in a need to stretch it out, kind of way.  I contemplated swimming.  Good idea?  Bad idea?  Would it make my arms to tired for more painting?  After making breakfast and doing some computer things, I decided to give it a go. 

I’m so glad I did.  It took a few laps to wake my body up, but my muscles are feeling much looser and relaxed!  We’ll see what I’m saying when I pick up the paint roller though!

When I got home, I was craving JUICE.

This juice was just what I needed and it tasted great!! Definitely one of my favorites!  I decided to forego the lemon/ginger/apple for once, and the change up was delicious!

I’m 100% re-energized.  The white walls are calling my name!
