Instead of using Krispy Kremes to fix my sadness if my run had gone bad this morning, I had Krispy Kremes to CELEBRATE!!!
I ran 4 miles this morning and it felt heavenly! My ankle area was a little sore but there was no pain and a few hours later it still feels completely normal. The real test comes the next morning….I swear that is when injuries show their ugly faces. Still not sure if I will run the 1/2 on Saturday and I probably won’t decide until Friday night at 11 but either way I emotionally/physically/mentally/spiritually NEEDED a few miles of happiness.
I watched the first part of Biggest Loser but had to go to work with just 10 minutes left of the episode. 42 minutes until I am home on my couch watching who won!!!
The other day at the gym as I was doing my side raises with 5 lb weights and feeling like my shoulders were about to fall off I noticed these babies:
Do people actually use those? What do they do with them….each one of those is like lifting my grandma while she is wearing 10 lb. ankle weights on each leg.
You thought I was kidding about the Krispy Kremes. I wasn’t. To share with Billy or to not share with Billy, that is the question.
I love getting my daily email from Runners World each morning. I look forward to it sitting in my mailbox and can’t wait to check out the latest article. I especially love it when the article has to do with running AND food. Today’s article was Food for Thought: Answers to your most pressing pre-mid, and post run nutrition questions. I wanted to include a few of them just in case you don’t check RW obsessively like I do.
This makes me happy because I REALLY love Wendy’s chili and that is what I usually order when I go there (either that or their Chicken Apple Pecan Salad).
I really think I might try fueling with honey because I can’t stand gels. Or maybe I will try candy dipped into honey instead:
Last but not least, the diet soda argument:
If you do ever get fast food, what is your go to ‘healthyish’ choice?
For or against diet soda…what are your thoughts?
What are your Thursday night plans?
What dumbbells do you usually use? 5, 8, 10,12, 15, MORE?
