Hi guys! Last night after SF class, I was a bit munchie. We did a lot of throws and takedowns last night and man those are the worst nights. Only because you have to keep getting up and down off the floor. That’s tiring! I just put out a little plate of munchies.
- 2 prunes
I ate the prunes (love them! Scott does not.) and a few apricots, and one slice of cheddar. I picked at the peanuts and pistachios. Scott pulled out a Honey Porter and I sipped on that more than I was planning. It went really well with the peanuts. Surprise, surprise! Then after I got my leg rubbed, I hit the sack.
The minute I got up this morning all I kept telling myself was that I was going to do 6 miles. “I’m doing 6 miles today.” “Getting in 6 miles this morning.” And every variation thereof.
My leg is sore but it’s not tight which thank goodness is a world of difference. It’s sore from being tight and then massaged (as in, I have bruises up and down my thigh. I’m hardcore! ). I started my run and my left felt great. It didn’t get tight on me at all. After 3.5 miles, I kept repeating, “I’m doing 6 miles today.” and I started my next 2.5 loop. I busted that out and was so happy by the time I got back home I was practically skipping.
No ill effects after the run either. I can totally bust out 10 miles on Sunday for sure. I had a quick glass of CS and then stretched. Hit the shower for a speedy wash and was back downstairs in a flash to make breakfast.
Yeah, you know it’s oatbran. Mix-ins super simple, just cranberries and some dark chocolate PB along with some coffee. Mmmmm
I shoveled that down the hatch and then it was time to hit up PhysT. I did a few new exercises and explained how I was able to hit 6 miles today no problem. Wheee! I didn’t have to get an ultrasound and I only have one appointment scheduled for next week. And that’s tenative, she said that depending on how I feel after my 10 mile run, I might not have to go back in.
I probably still will though at least one more time before the race. Plus I was supposed to get a new resistance band (more resistance) today but both of us forgot and I left without it. Doh!
After therapy it was time to go back home. I walked Rocky quick when I got back and then made some lunch. Super easy lunch today.
A sundried tomato flatout with hummus, spinach, and tomato. A smoothie to wash it all down. Today’s smoothie was the best one yet! So yummy!
- 2.5 C unsweetened cranberry juice
- Bunch of kale
- 1 carrot chunked
- 1 kiwi
- Frozen mango
- Frozen peaches
- 3 ice cubes
It was just like drinking juice! So light and refreshing, I want another.
Scott had an Amy’s veggie enchiliada meal that I added some extra rice to and some extra beans to the “beans” portion. The beans were so good and I kept picking at them. I love beans! I hated beans as a kid but now I love them. Towards the end, I gave him the last 1/4 of my sandwich and he saved me some beans. YUM!
Got to get some stuff done around here then it’s time to head out to MT. Hooray for awesome days!
