Good morning guys! I’m writing this just as I get home from work Sunday night and kind of want to put my feet up and relax. I’ve been a bit busier with work this week, but have some fun things to share that made me smile.
Thanks to Meg for getting this link-up party started! And congratulations to her on the birth of her little nugget 🙂
My running week was a bit of a downer. I was recovering from last week’s race so there was no real workouts outside easy running. On Wednesday, I went for a longer run with my lady run group and noticed a soreness on the inside of my left ankle.
The next day, it was still there and hurting. I had a workout planned for Friday, but did not do it because I was afraid of injuring myself (which I did last year at this time).
I am blessed to have a lot of running knowledge at my finger tips not only online, but also coaches and friends nearby. They helped advise my schedule to not injury myself further and maintain my base. Putting in two solid races has me in good shape for my marathon. Honestly, if I didn’t do another workout till then, I would still get a good time. I was advised to take 10 days off workouts, then do a long MP run of 23 miles, that being my longest.
I am so glad to have so many great runners around me, because I probably would have not been so smart with my planning and maybe pushed it too far.
On Sunday morning I was able to get in a 2.5 hour run on trails which made me really happy. Compression, ice and anti inflammatory foods guys.
Speaking of anti-inflammatory food, the fresh fruit smoothies at CTB are making me swoon. I don’t smoothie them anymore, I make what I call “Fruit-soup”. I just mix a couple together and eat it like soup. My favorite: mango, raspberry and blueberry. Clutch 🙂
In other news, I did all the usual things this week, laundry, shopping and fed myself.
I bought three new ramekins the other day because every picture I take looks the same in my white ones. The Pioneer Woman has a set of dishes that were perfect! Red, purple and blue ramekins now grace my breakfast plate 🙂 I also bought us new silverware after breaking the third spoon in our set. We were due.
I received a box from Plant Fusion proteins containing a shirt and many protein samples. I love this company and I hope to work with them in the future. I already have made a couple banana bowls using their powder and they are DELICIOUS!
That’s really all I can think of to note about the week.
How’s life where you are?
What is the best thing you did this week?
