Yesterday I went out for another 4 mile run. I thought about going biking, but I knew I probably wouldn't be able to run Wednesday and Thursday so I laced up and headed out. My goal for yesterday's short run was to run consistent miles in the pace range of 9:00 and 9:30. So here are my splits:
On another front...REVIEW TIME!
First off, how about some Better Whey of Life yogurt?
I was contacted a few weeks ago to review this stuff, and I was excited because I have been wanting to try it for a while, but they don't carry it in South Carolina yet. So they shipped me three flavors to try, the Acai Mixed Berry, French Vanilla and Plain.
The flavored yogurts both have a whopping 15 g protein, while the plain packs in 17 grams. They are all-natural and are the first whey protein-enhanced, nonfat yogurts on the market.
Other good things about this product:
- 30% less sugar than the leading yogurt
- 3g Prebiotic Fiber
- Made with nonfat milk with no added growth hormones
- Excellent source of Calcium
- Contains Probiotics for healthy digestion
All in all I would say that for a nonfat yogurt, these are pretty good! If you are looking for a product that will keep you full and taste pretty similar to regular yogurts, then you should try these out. I know I struggle to get enough protein in my diet so I welcomed adding these to my morning routine. They are in general though, a bit more tart than normal yogurts due to the lower amount of sugar and the whey additions, so if you try these expecting a Dannon Light 'N Fit taste, you're not going to get it!
Thanks Kasey for sending me these to try! When are they going to be available in my neck of the woods?? :)
Check out their website to see if Better Whey of Life is available in your state!
...and now for my Phillips In-Ear Headphones. These babies are seriously my favorite headphones for running. And believe me, I have tried out many different kinds and am really, really picky!
I should have worn a different color shirt so you could actually see the cord, but these headphones have two different lengths. Here, I have it shortened and the cord just reaches down to wear my iPod is. (Please excuse the cheesy pics.)
I usually clip it to the top of my sports bra for easier access, and it's nice to have the option of a shorter cord so it isn't all in the way, like I did here:
But if you want a longer cord, you can add on the extender.
What I like most about these headphones, is that they have three different sized ear buds to change out, depending on, well your ear size. Regardless of how they look in this pic, I have really small ears and most in-ear headphones are too big and keep slipping out during a run or either irritate my ears. But with these, I can choose the size of the ear buds to fit me perfectly (medium).
They also have a longer cord for the right ear bud, which works out nicely if you wrap the right one around the back of your neck, and secure the ipod on your left side.
These headphones are comfortable too, and they also have great sound quality! Much louder and richer than my iPod earbuds.
And they come in a cute little case so you can keep the extra extension and ear buds.
I bought these at Target, and they usually run about $30. But I could only find them online here at Best Buy for $34.99. They come in red or black.
(Whew! That was a long post! Thanks for sticking around :)
