Workout: 9 mile run in 1:36 minutes. 2 mile walk with the doggies :)
Calories: It’s Superbowl sunday and it’s against the law to count them today!!!
Seriously, how do long distance runners do it? My gosh, I’m walking like a 9 month old pregnant lady – two weeks overdue. My lower back and legs are killing me. Do runners get used to this pain?
I know icing is supposed to help, but I can’t imagine doing long runs more than once a week.
I almost didn’t get out and run today, either, but I made myself get out that door. The first four miles were awesome, a 10 minute pace for me. Then came the gu and mile 5 – not so awesome. The next 2 miles were painful and slow. Then I noticed the breathing was ok, so I tried to push myself the next 2 and they went a little faster.
I still haven’t figured out my Garmin so I don’t have the split times. I just know I finished and was so glad to do so. I just wish I was immune to lower back pain.
In other healthy news I realized that I’ve fallen off the diet wagon. It probably happened a couple of weeks ago, probably when I tried on my goal jeans and found that they were feeling a little better. I started getting a little lax, boo me!
Today I’m trying to eat a little better. Hence the following:
I got the veggies in and you can bet your booty I had some boneless chicken wings, Doritos, Tostitos and homemade oatmeal cookies. Yay for the Super Bowl.
The doggies got their treats!
Dulci wasn’t interested much, though.
Tomorrow, the healthy eating must resume!!
It turns out EP is under a water-conservation advisory and school will be cancelled one more day. It looks like I’m indebted to the Snowpocalypse for the 4-day vacation.
On a serious note, I need to make a stash in case of emergencies. Are you all prepared, got any good tips?
