I woke up with every intention of keeping it lazy today. But that just wasn't in the cards. I re-organized the upstairs and moved some furniture around... did tons of laundry!
Made some bread dough... I LOVE fresh baked bread. It's so nice to have it in the house!
Today was beautiful - sunny, just a little breeze... perfect for a run. I was cleaning, and I said to myself "self, at 4:00 you need to get out there." I was really excited, but as 4:00 got closer, the less excited I got. It would be so much easier to just sit around! The whole "just put on your running shoes and see what happens" thing feels like it was made for me. I got ready to go, and immediately I was excited about getting outside again.
Last Thursday I went running on some streets by my house for the first time. So today I went again. What great running! There are some hills, and the traffic is light. I felt totally safe this afternoon. So it looks like I will be getting back into a running routine! Hooray!
The bad thing about today was that my IT band started acting up around mile 2. I have honestly been a running slacker this winter, even on the treadmill, and I think my IT band was not happy that I went from running 15 minutes on the treadmill to running two miles outside on the roads with hills. When I turned around, I decided to walk home. Got home, stretched, iced, rolled, repeated. I will be icing and rolling before I go to bed.
Eating was super good today.
Breakfast - toast with ricotta and jelly
Lunch - perch with green beans and roasted potatoes
Snack - grapes, banana, carrots with hummus
Dinner - salad with salmon, grapes and walnuts - balsamic vinaigrette
Sweet - plain yogurt with honey
