What a week. It has not gone anything like I had envisioned, but I’m just going to shake it off. I’ve still got some things to figure out, but I’m taking it one day at a time.

I took resting very seriously Thursday night and picked up these delicious Palm Breeze drinks from Walmart.

Maybe it was the frustration of the week, or maybe I just needed a little breather but they seriously hit the spot!

I’m sure it’s not the ideal way to end a tough work-week of training but it seemed okay to me! Sometimes you just need to relax!

The drink came in two tropical flavors: Ruby Red Citrus and Pineapple Mandarin Orange. They both sounded delicious, so why not try them both right?

I’m not a huge drinker, I only usually do it occasionally socially but this hit the spot after a pretty rough and exhausting week.

I’m definitely going to be picking up some more of these when we have some friends over later next week. I think they will for sure be a big hit and a great way to celebrate another training week is complete.


We all have those little things that we enjoy that aren’t necessarily healthy but they help us relax and unwind. A few of mine include:

  • Frozen Yogurt
  • Gummy Worms
  • Cake (any kind)
  • Fruity delicious drinks (just like the Palm Breeze)
  • Mexican Food

I don’t know what it is about these things, but when I treat myself it is with one of the things above. Sometimes you have to let yourself live a little, relax and not take life so seriously. It wasn’t meant to be!

I had a bad training week, but there is always another run, always another workout, and another new week to look forward to. There is no reason to look back.


I’ve got so focused on a time goal that I forgot the real reason I run. To enjoy it. Just like with these things I enjoy that I’ve shared with you today, running needs to be just an enjoyable. Sure it is going to be hard some days and easy others, but running overall needs to be something you enjoy.


What are your guilty pleasures?
