Yesterday I started off my morning with a great breakfast of Greek Yogurt with a cut up Banana and (a few) handfuls of granola and Special K cereal. Oh, and of course a few (or more) apples because I don’t know what my day looks like without them. And coffee. Duhh, that is a given for me 🙂
I went to the gym for the first time since before leaving for Michigan and I suffered through some basic lifting/abs/push-ups/kettle bell swings/lunges/squats. Boy am I out of shape! But that is OK, it just felt great to sweat!
OK. So please don’t tell anyone I did this next thing…
…especially my Sports Performance Doctor. He would be slightly frustrated with me… and don’t tell my mom either– she is as scary as my doctor….
but I don’t care, because I RAN PAIN FREE TODAY!!!
I was going to go on a long walk as my dad and his running buddy ran, but literally as I put in my Ipod and watched them run away from me, I got so sad that I shouted “Wait!!” and ran up to them and just said “Lets do this!” I was very careful to listen to my body and promised myself I would stop if I felt any pain. Well, 5.2 (ish) miles later, I finished the run (very out of breath I might add) and was on cloud nine! Man it felt great to get some running endorphins again!! Whoo-hoo!! ((Wow, clearly I still have them…I don’t do many ‘whoo-hoo’s’…))
I was very winded and could definitely tell that I had not done any cardio in 3.5 weeks. It also didn’t help that I am still recovering from my sinus infection and have lots of yummy flem/mucus in my lungs ((gross sorry that was TMI…))
I finished up my day deep cleaning my car. Please stay tuned for some serious details regarding deep car cleaning. This is very important… a clean car feels like a new car and takes years off its life. Fact.
Have a great day everyone!!
Thoughts on whether or not I should have run?? Am I a bad patient??
What is your favorite breakfast??
