Workout: 3 miles + core work + foam roller
The 3 miles I ran this morning were more difficult than the 5 I ran yesterday. My brain likes the longer runs to zone out and my body likes the longer runs to warm up. Yes I know, I could add a warm up to the shorter runs. I’m working on it.
I did planks for 10 minutes, and I have no idea how many I did. Five? I also spent some quality time with my foam roller, and wow my IT bands were tight! I had to give myself a stern talking to about rolling those babies out. Tight IT bands give me hip and knee injuries without fail. Must.avoid.more.injuries.
And you guys, I’m really proud of myself because I actually MADE DINNER last night. I mean, “made” is relative (right MQ?). I heated things up and put them together. But I used more than two ingredients, and I actually cooked (again, heated up) my vegetables instead of just eating them raw out of laziness.
I cut up carrots and broccoli, added the Perdue breaded chicken breast cutlets, and half a cup of Ben’s Ready Rice (garden vegetable flavor). Obviously I topped it with lots of salt, pepper, hot sauce and Sriracha. SO GOOD and SO EASY. Took me under 10 minutes to prepare!
Tonight I am headed to a “New Volunteers Meet & Greet” for Girls on the Run. I am SO excited and will tell you all about it tomorrow.
Happy Hump Day!
