Yesterday morning before work with my dad I got in a GREAT 50 min weight lifting session. I did lots of legs and arms and was sweating my booty off as I quickly changed (yes that is correct… I did not have time to shower, so I didn’t. Sorry not sorry) and rushed off.
After work, I did something I NEVER do! I went out to breakfast with my dad!! We went to First Watch and it was DELICIOUS!! I got the Tri-athlete Plate — Egg white omelet with mushrooms, tomato, green chilies, and then a dry english muffin and a cup of fruit! I will definitely go back!
The rest of the day (up to 6pm) was spent mowing the lawn and being a BAMF with the electric chain saw on some bushes that badly needed a trim!
THEN I RAN!!
Words cannot describe how happy I am to be running again! My shinsplints don’t hurt AT ALL!! Seriously, no pain! It am a firm believer in the benefits of compression socks. I have been wearing my Pro Compression’s absolutely anywhere and everywhere. I also have been super careful about running. I ran for the first time on Thursday evening (5.2 miles) and I didn’t run again until yesterday evening.
Last night I got in a great 6 miles! I forgot to charge my Nike GPS watch (hadn’t been used in about 4 weeks!!) so I went old school! My total time was 43.54. I started off the first mile super easy to take inventory on my body… from there I picked it up to a faster but still comfortable pace. I got down to around 6.55 pace for the last few miles, which I was pleased with. ((I ran on the Monon Trail which has every 2/10th’s of a mile marked. This also makes it great for speed work!))
I love when I can get strength AND cardio in… feels oh so good!
Anyways, I was happy and totally got a runner’s high from it!! Success! I then went to Stacked Pickle which is 5$ burgers on Monday night’s. I got a Turkey Burger and had the bottom half of the bun and a side salad. I felt good about it!
It was an active, tiring day and I loved every second of it!
What do you guys have going on today?
Are you guys prefer to go out for breakfast, lunch, or dinner? (All 3 is definitely an option!)
