No I have not spent days in the saddle. Two days ago I came close to summiting San Bernardino Peak and my calves, butt and yes, even my shoulders are still feeling the burn. ( No, I did not hand stand my way to the top of the mountain. My shoulders hurt from carrying a moderately heavy back pack for twelve miles.)
I did not have plans to do a work out of any kind this morning but I woke up to the power out.
There would be no coffee, no heat and no Fox News this morning. I was cold, sleepy and grumpy that I couldn’t watch reruns of Shep Smith from yesterday. So I decided to go for a run.
I mean my only other option was clean the house, talk to the cats, read or spy on my homeless neighbors. I just didn’t feel like being a creep or being a cat lady so off to the trails I went.
Good thing I did because the marine layer was thick over the valley and unbelievably gorgeous this morning.
After I accomplished a good four mile run without my calves exploding some how, I made my way back home to my cabin and the power was back on, oh think god!
I was already awake and pumped from my run so I whipped up a Pumpkin Coconut Tea Latte in my nutri bullet.
This tea latte just screams fall! Making it in the nutri bullet will foam it up like a latte without using a espresso machine!
1 cup boiling water
1/2 tsp coconut cream
1/2 tsp coconut oil
1/2 tsp to 1 tsp raw honey
