Hi friends! Are you having a good Wednesday? I am!
I had the opportunity to work from home today so I was able to get a lot done in the process!
My day started at 6:30 in front of my computer so I needed some fuel with a banana and coffee!
I worked all morning until the hunger monster hit and I made a nice big bowl of oatmeal. Warm and filling!
After breakfast, I realized I hadn’t seen my favorite little co-worker in quite a bit! I searched all over the house until I found him…
I continued to work up to my lunch hour when I decided to build up the nerve to go run! I was really nervous but I made myself make a few promises.
1. No sprinting or kicking at the end.
2. Keep consistent slow pace.
3. Stop, stretch, and evaluate between every mile.
I started out with a .25 mile brisk walk around the track before stretching.
Mile 1 8:53
Mile 2 9:02
Mile 3 9:18
I decided it was best to slow down each mile. I am really happy my fitness level hasn’t decreased at all. I never felt too tired or sore! I only had planned on doing 2 miles but since there was no pain I thought a 3rd slow one would be ok. Tomorrow I am planning to only do 2 consecutive SLOW miles. When I came home I iced my foot for 20 minutes and elevated it to be safe!
I made a fun lunch today since I was home! My meal started out with roasting 2 sweet potatoes in batchese to make sweet potato “fries”. These were only cooked in Pam and some salt.
I have continued to work all afternoon! After I am done this evening I am heading to Mike’s to hang out! Can’t wait!
I am so glad I was able to run today, it definitely was a confidence boost that I needed! All the hours on cardio machines during my recovery were so worth it. I just need to keep taking it easy and listen to my body… off to foam roll!!
Question of the day:
Ever find your pets hiding in unusual places??
