Yesterday’s Evening Workout
- Cardio Dance – 45 minutes
I went. I danced. I came home.
This morning started out with some calf sleeves and coffee.
I woke up at about 5 am because my calves were so sore. So, I did what any normal person would do – I played Plants vs. Zombie on my phone until about 6am, and then I rolled out of bed to put my calves sleeve on. Then, I really needed coffee.
Hello, butter toffee coffee. You make my mornings so much better.
BodyPump pretty much wasn’t fun this morning. At all. Not only are my calves super sore, but my shoulder is hurting a lot. After Danny and I did the Muddy Buddy a couple of months ago, my shoulder starting bothering me a bit. Well, lately it has gotten a lot worse, and today was the worst.
So, during Body Pump, I lifted really light weights and skipped the push-ups. I think my body is telling me that I need to rest, but I have the last Biggest Loser workout tonight. Here’s what my plan is for the next few days:
- Wednesday – Biggest Loser workout (take it easy!) and 5k prep
- Thursday – Walk approx. 3 slow miles
- Friday – Off/Rest
- Saturday – Fall Fitness 5k (biggest loser finale!)
Hopefully, taking it easy on Thursday and Friday will help me be rested for the race on Saturday.
I made another peach pumpkin oatmeal parfait this morning. So delicious!
Only this time, I topped it with about a tablespoon of granola with almonds. The soft oatmeal and the crunchy granola really gave it a nice texture contrast.
I’ve decided that after the 5k on Saturday there’s only one thing that I want to do – eat a pumpkin muffin and drink coffee. Okay, I guess that’s actually two things.
I never drink coffee before a race, so by the end of the race, I’m wishing that they gave out cups full of coffee rather than water!
Questions of the day:
- What time do you usually wake up during the week? On the weekends?
- Do you drink coffee before you run/race?
- Where can I get the best pumpkin muffin?
