I feel like so much has happened this week already that it can't possibly be just Tuesday. Everything is so much more complicated when you don't have a car.
Tuesday is my running day. I usually get up and try to be out the door by 6:30. I love early morning runs, they energize me and make me feel like I can accomplish anything. Another upside is that I have the whole day in front of me. This morning I woke up EXHAUSTED. I feel like this is becoming a theme...
First I woke up an hour later than I planned and then when it was time for my run I wimped out. My legs were still pretty sore from stadiums yesterday. I justified my wimping out by telling myself that when I had a car I used to run stadiums in the morning and then my body had a whole 24 hours to recover before running the next morning but I had done stadiums less than 12 hours before so I should wait until the evening and do an evening run instead.
I should know better. I'm just horrible at working out in the evenings. After a long day at work I want to come home and veg, or atleast get some dinner.
So anyways, I came home and went on a walk with my mom and then I went for a run. I've been running for 4.5 miles every other day but today I was only able to do 3 miles. Bummer. I don't know about you but when I've attained a certain level of fitness the next time I go out I want to be able to accomplish the same or MORE. It's always so depressing to not be able to get to atleast the same level. On days that I run I usually throw in a Jari Love cardio video or on Saturday I did P90X Plyometrics. I haven't done anything of the like yet. Not sure if I will... but I should, especially since I skimped on the run.
In other news, for the past couple weeks I've been working on a copy cat to Kashi's Mayan Harvest Bake. I LOVE the Mayan Harvest Bake. Absolutely the BEST frozen meal. It's just so good. I could rave about it for a whole blog post. I searched the internet and came up with a pretty good copy cat but haven't been completely satisfied so each week I've been editing here and there and the meal that I made today was delicious! I think I'm pretty happy with it and there won't be anymore editing. I'll post the recipe in tomorrow's blog.
