My favorite iPhone running app is without a doubt Runmeter. Not only does it integrate with Dailymile, but followers can send you messages that will be "read" as encouragement during a run. It also uses the phone's GPS to create a map of the run, clock distance, and give you updates on your pace.
During my last run, which is a 5K circuit, I noticed something amazing, something absolutely spectacular!
Apparently my pace has drastically improved overnight to an average 5:58/minute mile. It must be my Blueberry Power Smoothie
But then I snapped back to reality and recalled hearing on the news that Earth is experienced a massive solar flare late last week that is disrupting some radio and GPS systems. As a result my normally coherent run map looks like a drawing from a two year old playing with a Magna Doodle.
So it appears that I may not be quite as fast as I thought it was. I am still going to enjoy my after-run Blueberry Power Smoothie.
- 1 cup wild blueberries, frozen
- peel of one orange
- one orange, juiced
- 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
- 4 Tbsp vanilla whey protein powder
- 2 Tbsp honey
- Aprox. 1/4 cup coconut water to thin
Combine all ingredients into a blender and puree until smooth. Use coconut water to loosen the mixture, a little more if the blender is having a difficult time processing the blueberries. Top with blueberries and orange peel as a garnish.
