Brittany left me a comment yesterday and I have to say she is so right, why is it that you can workout day in day out and feel great and energized but as soon as you take a week off from the gym or running you feel sluggish and BLAH?
So as soon as I got home today changed into my running gear, no time for excuses to set in, headed to the basement where my beloved treadmill was waiting.
on the treadmill
5min warm up
4minute run and 1minute walk (repeat 4 times)
5min cool down
3km in 30 minutes
Can I just say that it felt so good to be running pain free. I kept waiting for the pain to start but the shin feeling Good, the calf feeling Good. I did feel little aches and pains but that was simply from NOT moving for the past 2 weeks.
After my run I spend 20minutes stretching and I made sure to stretch every muscle properly and took my time... feeling Good.
I have to admit that I didn't have a great day as far as my eating went, especially hours before the run. There was no pre run snack to fuel my run ... well there was sharing of a small bag of chips, but I certainly it did more harm then good and certainly had no part in fuelling anything. During my run I could feel the chips just sitting there and they were upsetting my tummy. NOT feeling GOOD!!
Tomorrow is another day... I really feel like running again tomorrow but I should have a rest day in between runs, I need to take it slow. So the bike it is ... which I HATE!! UGH!!
I have another NEW to me Product I just have to mention because I LOVE IT, I could eat the whole tub in one sitting and I'm NOT kidding.
Liberte Mediterranee Coconut Yogurt!! YUM YUM
I know, the Nutrition Facts are a bit scary!! That's a whole lot of FAT in one place and the calories YIKES!!
I'm so used to having NO Fat, LOW Calorie Yogurt and to have something like this, is simply SINFUL. AMAZING. It has little pieces of Coconut and is really thick and creamy.
Hope you had a Feeling Good Monday!!
