This afternoon I left off with a snack. Not too long after that I had another snack. It was just some veggies. I was cleaning and cutting a big supply so they are on hand for everyone to eat. We go through them like crazy!
That did not hold me over for too long and I had dinner shortly after. I had a big bowl of yum! It was left overs from last night. It consisted of mashed potatoes, beef with gravy and corn.
I think I enjoyed it even more today!
It finally was getting towards evening and the weather still had not cooled down. Maybe 2 degrees by my account. Despite our local channels “extreme heat warning” I went for my run. I drink tons of water anyway so I felt safe in doing so.
I headed towards my normal route as of late. I have been feeling off this week. Just weak and struggling through my workouts for some reason (maybe the new medication?). Today was no exception. I had heavy legs and felt very slow. After about a half of a mile I was feeling pretty good. Instead of going the normal route I veered off to the left and decided to go in a direction that I have not gone in about three years.
This was the route that first gave me my ITBS and three years of problems with it. It is about 6 miles from my house in a big loop. I have not gone that way because I have not been able to run that far without pain in a long time. The last two weeks I have gone between 5-6 miles so I guess I wanted to see if I could do it. I sure can! I ran and got a little worried near the spot where it first gave me trouble right in front of the airport. I ran past that area and I felt great!
When I got home I stretched and iced and still felt no pain. I think I am going to be ok. 🙂 I am so excited that I am back running again! My husband tells me I should not push it and he’s right. I have a tendency to go overboard. For the up coming week I want to step it back a bit and maybe just run 3-4 miles at a clip.
This past week I did 6 miles Tue and biked (stationary workout) Thur for my cardio and then again ran 6 today. For my new subscribers, I like to do three days of cardio (T, Th, Sat) and three days of circuits (M, W, F) with Sunday as a rest day. I am looking forward to that tomorrow!
So that is my eats for the day. I don’t plan on eating anything else unless I feel hungry. In that case there are some fresh berries calling to me from the fridge. They look good but I just don’t feel like I have room yet. 🙂
I hope you all have a great night!
Talk to you later. 🙂
