I ended the day with a nice slow run and a few minutes on the stair stepper at the gym last night. It helped my mood tremendously and I feel so much better today! Amazing what a good sweat can do for your body and soul!
The not so nice this was I ended up getting a blister on top of a healing blister – right on my left big toe! Luckily it doesn’t hurt but today I am going to go get fitted for running shoes – finally!
I also ended up watching a replay (a very old replay) of Ironman 2005. What an emotional journey those participants go through. I even recognized the oldest runner from my Runner’s World magazine, Ed Wolfgram. Wow – really puts things in perspective when a 25 year old is complaining about not wanting to do something! 😉
Well today really feels like fall! Cloudy, rainy, windy… I love it! Unfortunately I woke up at 5:30am and could not get back to sleep. I came downstairs and started reading Anthony Bourdain’s book Kitchen Confidential – I just love him! The only TV show I practically watch is No Reservations. His writing is humorous, true and un-censored – he writes it how it is!
After a chapter and making some coffee, which I didn’t drink, I tried to lay back down again. I woke back up at 7:30 when I heard Jordan stirring. I was exhausted still but glad I went back to bed.
I started to get very hungry so I made myself a VERY red Green Monster! Pretty, huh!?
Almond milk, Amazing Meal, strawberries, blueberries, peaches and half of an orange. Tasty!
Have an amazing day everyone!
