Yesterday was all kinds of sucky. It was a long, stressful day. I was tired and struggled to get going in the morning which meant I was running late. It was an extra large kind of day.
I try not to order the extra large tea because it’s ridiculous. It’s huge. But it was one of those mornings where I just knew I was going to need it.
Lunch time I snuck out and headed to chiro. I hadn’t been in weeks and I have been experiencing some new knee pain. I attribute it to the sprints I have been doing. It’s a different style of running for me and my feet hit much harder on the pavement. I was right, it’s called “jumper’s knee” and is the beginning of a tendonitis. The best way to fix it is to keep my quads stretched, iced and relaxed. They were super tight when she worked on them.
I got through the day somehow and went to pick up C. Only to then receive an email asking me for something I was supposed to do that totally slipped my mind so back to work I went and grabbed my computer to finish it at home. C went to her grandma’s for the evening and she was really sniffly once I picked her up. She has been fighting a summer cold all week. Summer colds are the worst.
I finished what I had to do and was able to hit up the gym still in time for the 6:15 class. I got there and was informed that the wod we were doing was a 1/2 Murph. ugh. really? The good news was it was with a partner.
800 m run
50 pull ups
100 push ups
800 m run
You both did the run and then you could divide the other movements. It actually went fast and we finished in 19:54. Not too bad at all. When we finished we did some ab stuff and with our partners played catch while doing sit ups with a medicine ball. I actually enjoyed it and it was just what I needed after the day I had. When I got home I was craving something comforting. I consulted my meal plan and found just the thing for how I was feeling.
That’s an egg white omelet with some veggies and a PB&J sandwich. I enjoyed every bite of that sandwich. It was just what I needed last night. I felt great after the work out and dinner and was able to relax the rest of the night. J got home from baseball and we watched a Teen Mom 2 which always helps us feel good about ourselves and how our lives have turned out.
Now it’s Friday and the weekend begins in just a few short hours.
Have you got any plans for the weekend?
I have lots to get done and also a lot of fun visits in there too!
Is it a long weekend in your neck of the woods?
