Let me just apologize in advance for the random outfit I am wearing in the below pictures. I needed to change into shorts in order to work on the leg but was far too lazy to change my work shirt and that is where the mismatched random outfit was born.
Thursday night was dedicated to getting that leg of mine back to its normal wanting to run as much as possible self.
I have a friend that is a chiropractor and he lent me an Electrotherapy device. Basically these weird things that made my muscles twitch and feel really cool are used to increase blood circulation, repair tissue and are used for muscle rehabilitation. Already feeling the benefits:)
Next up was our new Tiger Tail (found on gear page, it is a rolling muscle massager). The foam roller is a little too much pressure right now on the quad so the Tiger Tail is just perfect.
Pretty brave of me to put up this picture of my nap hair…..I LOVE naps, it is amazing what 20 minutes of shut eye can do for you!
Spray on tan will occur before Boston…….. also I might pick up my house before I take pictures. Did I tell you that my neighbor brought over a new dish scrub brush? I think she was hinting that it is time for me to do the dishes. I heard doing dishes and cleaning your house makes muscle recovery slow down and that is why I have let them stack up 3 feet above a safe level.
My next tip would be to make a colorful, ridiculously delicious dinner. We have an egg omelet with fresh delicious eggs from JEN, broccoli, peppers and chia seeds and a toasted THOMAS Bagel thin with Jam and apples. I was sent the bagel thins and although I was a little skeptical at first (I had never tried them before), I actually really LOVED them. I get excited thinking about the possibilities with these beauties.
The best recovery tip of all………
The cutest MEGAN brought over her famous zucchini cookies…..these are SO GOOD but also ridiculously good for you!!! Go to her amazing BLOG right now to get the recipe. They are still good for you if you eat all four at the same time right?!?!
