So today, I got up, ran and caught up with my girl Karen, went to a meeting, then physical therapy, then another meeting. Karen’s life is like a mirror image of mine right now, and she is an amazing friend. She helped make my Friday morning a little bit better. At physical therapy, I talked to Lori, my PT, and we decided that is would be a smart decision to take a couple of weeks completely off of running. It sucks. Coach Susan agrees it’s the right thing to do. It still sucks. Sometimes doing the right thing sucks…
On my way to PT, I got a Rockin Refuel Less Sugar formula to put in my coffee. It was SO good!
After my noon meeting, I went to Sole Sports to see Karen and talk about shirts for Ragnar. We are going to be SO cute with our team shirts! Karen rocks for helping us out! I got a really cute purple striped Nike tank for the summer and some KT tape. Joe helped to explain to me how I can effectively KT tape my ass back together.
So after I got home, that’s what I did! Notice the purple….hopefully the purple tape works even better because it’s so awesome. I wouldn’t want any other less awesome color taping my ass.
This picture is censored for obvious reasons. Purple KT tape…purple compression sleeves….yup. Purple is awesome.
Is anyone doing the Skirt Chaser? I am planning on running it for fun if I can by then. Last year I was freshly back into running and thought I could PR. So I went straight out the gate at a 9 minute mile and then crashed and burned as soon as I hit the hill on Curry. 33 minutes later, I crossed the finish line dying! So yeah….not planning on doing that again this year. It’s a fun race if you’ve never done it. Hopefully it won’t be as hot this year as it was last year. Yes, almost too hot to run comfortably in Feb. Welcome to the Valley of the Sun. Check out that promo code!
Speaking of February, I am going to participate in a couple of really cool challenges this month. The first one is by Running Toward Healthy, and it’s called Fab Ab February. Here is her calendar:
Check out her Facebook page to show her some love and let her know that you are participating!
Also, Squat Til You Drop is a challenge to make that booty work and get it tight and round (that is if you have booty to make round….I’m still working on that lol!)
The challenge is by Fabfitmomma and includes some things that I know I cannot due because of my injury. I am going to do what I can, though, and will probably benefit as much from the exercises for my strength and healing as I will for my soon to be tighter booty! Woo hoo for the hot booties!! Here is her calendar:
Give Fabfitmomma some love on her Facebook page and let her know you are workin’ that ass this month, too!
I had PT and a 20-25 minute run this morning, so I am laying off on the booty for today. I did, however, do the ab work.
Tonight, I had dinner with Karen and Meeker at Pita Jungle, and we ran into Loken and Bill there, too! How cute is this pic!
I was so hungry that I forgot to take pics of my food. We split a chicken salad and a chipotle chicken something pizza, and each got coconut curry soup. It was amazing as always. I also had their berry tea, which is my fav one to get in the evening because it is decaf. It is so good and refreshing!
Then, I took a bath and shaved my legs again. Now I shall sleep well, hopefully, because of it.
Plans for the weekend? Nothing out of the ordinary for me. I think I am going to try riding my bike tomorrow morning for the first time in a long time. I am not allowed to run, so I can only cross train. I am going to go batshit crazy if I don’t find something to keep me in shape. Hopefully riding my bike won’t hurt. Will report back.
What about you? What are you doing for the Super Bowl?
Are you doing any kind of workout challenge this month?
Favorite kind of cross training?
