Just got a little Graston on my right knee this morning. Dr. Bennett always catches things before they turn into an injury. He is my secret weapon for getting to Boston injury free. I go in every three weeks to get little things worked on and I always feel like a million bucks afterwards. I will go on strike if he ever retires, he has helped my running so much.
8 miles this morning at an 8:28 pace. On my easy runs I make sure to listen to relaxing music to keep me from speeding up when I know I need to go easy so that I can recover from the previous workout.
Brooke and I were invited over to Megan’s house for lunch today. I don’t know if there are many things better than having an amazing lunch prepared for you to come over and enjoy.
She made THIS salad and you have to try it (for the dressing she only uses 1/2 the sugar because it is pretty sweet).
Because when a new Oreo flavor comes out, you must try it. Must.
I think that these are WAYYYYYY better than normal Oreos. I loved them.
Brooke’s review of the cookies judging by how she ate them—> the cream cheese frosting is delicious but the cookie part… not her favorite.
Four of my favorite things lately:
1. This gum. I love gum so very much and I know I have mentioned this flavor before but I just have to again.
2. Kris’s blog. I have always loved her blog and her attitude about training, injuries, life etc. She is so inspiring to me!
3. I have been chaffing like crazy the last few months from my sports bras (maybe because most of my miles are done inside a hot gym where I sweat like crazy) and I found a sports bra that feels heavenly.
It has been a night and day difference for me. I have been using THIS ONE. It is a little more $ than I usually spend but sooooo worth it to me because it feels great, does it’s job and leaves me chafe free.
4. My mom printed off the picture of my grandpa running for Brooke too and she has been carrying it all around and looking at it.
