My Legs Hate Me.

2 days after a long run is always the worst in terms of soreness- I’m not sure what compelled me to run Doak Stadiums today, but I sure did.  And my legs definitely hate me for it.  

I had trouble getting time or motivation to eat lunch today for some reason.  I got caught up in work, Supervisor evals, etc and just wasn’t motivated to hunt/gather food :).  I ended up with an apple before stadiums for energy and an apple after.

I got to experience the cleaning of the stadium after a huge game- it took a 11-man team.  So crazy.

Had to check in on Dave today- he had lost a bet with some friends at UF and sure enough… he wasn’t thrilled about his attire today. I had to see for myself.  Good sport!

I finally got home today and couldn’t bring myself for another mile- too tired and not enough energy.  I headed straight for food.  Dinner was a steam-in-bag meal: Couscous with spinach and lemon/olive oil light sauce.  I added avocado and egg because I was craving calories, fat, and protein.

Got to work writing a publication for one of the organization’s I hold a leadership role in.  My best work is done 1) with candlelight and 2) with a glass of wine.  True story.  And the candle smells like christmas cookie.  Lovely!

All finished with my first draft, completely exhausted, and trying to mentally prepare myself for early-morning training sesh tomorrow (first one after Thanksgiving is going to be ridiculous I’m sure- and… my personal trainer told me that on my way out of the gym today). Time for bed! 

 

Starbucks Is My Everest…

Especially when there’s one literally across the street from my office.  It’s all I can do to stop myself from ordering the high-sugar Salted Caramel Mocha (soooo good in my mouth- not so good on my hips!)

Image

I settled on a Passion Fruit tea instead (still yummy- much less calories and no sugar) to go with my apple mid-morning pick-me-up.

Image

I didn’t run this morning…. I decided I needed a day off.  I’m rarin’ to go now, though… kind of wishing I got my lazy butt up out of bed to run this morning!  But who can leave this sweet face?  She clearly needed a little more cuddle time.

Image

I was worried I’d be really sore this morning from my upper body workout yesterday, but I think the nighttime recovery is actually working pretty well- I was only a little sore and have a lot of energy (atypical for a day after a tough weight session)

Image

Breakfast this morning was banana, pear, muesli, and almond milk.  Was soooo good (don’t worry, my muesli was low sugar, high fiber)

And off to a Healthy Campus meeting!  (I love my job!)
