Double spin, running websites and the best smoothie ever!

This morning my husband had to travel a few hours away for some work-related stuff, so I had to go it alone at the gym.  I got there just as the 6am spinning class was about to begin.  I felt okay during the first class, even though I was a little tired.  When I finished with spin class #1, I moved on to a treadmill, where I did a 2 mile run in about 20 minutes.  When I finished with my run, I went on to do my strength training.  Today's muscle groups: back and triceps.  I spent 30 minutes doing alternating reps with both machines and free weights.  Finally, I went back to the spin room for spin class #2.  Joining the gym was the best decision my husband I have made in a long time. :)

Today I came across something interesting as I was scrolling through my site hits.  I saw that someone had come to my blog from another website for runners, so I went to it and saw this (click on the link to see):

  So that was pretty cool.  I'm glad to know there are people getting something from my blog.

Lastly, I don't do a lot of posts about food, even though nutrition and distance running certainly go hand-in-hand.  Just FYI, if any of you are ever interested in what I eat on a daily basis, feel free to go to my www.MyFitnessPal.com page and have a look at my food diary (my user name is PriscillaBake).  Unless we're somewhere with no internet access, I log my food and exercise on there every day.  I keep my food diary "open" so anyone can look at it.  Fair warning: some days are better than others.  I have been known to cave to the occasional treat and/or restaurant favorite.  Along those lines, I just have to share the recipe for the most heavenly smoothie I think I've had in a long time.  

Coconut Protein Smoothie:
 6 oz. Silk Coconut Milk, Vanilla or Original
1/2 frozen banana
2 Tblspns. vanilla protein powder
2 Tblspns. artificial sweetener or honey
1 container Dannon Light 'n Fit Pineapple Coconut
1/2 cup ice (more or less, depending on how thick you like it)

This amount makes enough for one big smoothie and is only around 200 calories. :)
