Before I get into today’s post, I just wanted to say how astounded I was with everyone’s responses on my post from yesterday. You all gave me some great suggestions on how to get through this low point, and you also showed me once again how supportive and amazing the people around me can be . I am going to take some of these suggestions and turn them into action…step one already happened today! A few of you had said to sign up for sparkpeople.com, and I did it today. I am not perfect with it, yet, but if you’re on, my username is ikkint213…you can find me because I have not yet figured out how to find others .
And now back to the real purpose: yesterday I started running for my marathon training. And my hip is not quite right still. It felt great while on my 3 mile run, but since then, it has been tight as heck. Blah. I guess it’s time that I finally find a doctor at school. The health center on campus is less than up to speed on injury, so I think it’s best if I find my own doctor since my normal one is 2+ hours away.
Oh ya, and about 2.8 miles into my 3 mile run, my knee locked up and it was really strange. I have never had that happen before. I ended up walking the rest of the way home but at least I had my trusty Garmin companion with me. It was actually the first time I ran with it!
But you know what happened before my run? I fueled up with an AWESOME taco salad (minus any meat). I had been gifted a single serve bag of Doritos from a swimmer who doesn’t like them (is that even allowed?). So I decided to crunch them atop some romaine, cucumber, green pepper, black olives, and a little cheddar cheese. Topped with some Catalina French dressing, and it totally hit the spot.
I was supposed to run again today but it turned into a 40 minute at-home spin session while watching 2 episodes of Modern Family. I had never watched it before, but started yesterday. I guess I have a lot of catching up to do!
And then, this happened:
Geno made himself at home within my messy closet.
Oh, and then after, this happened:
Geno tried drinking my smoothie. He didn’t get very far. I am pretty overprotective when it some to my smoothies!
Do any of you have cats who try to eat all of your food?
What’s your favorite type of salad?
