- Butts and Guts Class – 60 minutes
My calves were still tight when I woke up this morning. Luckily, once I started moving around a bit, they loosened up a lot. The last time they were this bad was last year when I had to go to the sports doctor and go to physical therapy.
Now, I know how to handle them a little bit better. I know not to push myself if they’re too tight and painful. I stretch and foam roll more and I take ibuprofen when needed.
And of course, we did tons of squats and lunges in Butts & Guts class today. I just went at my own pace and regressed some of the exercises if I needed too. I did made sure to put on my Pro Compression socks when I got home though.
Post workout, I had a Larabar.
Larabar recently sent me a few of their bars to try out.
Two of their regular bars in Apple Pie and Peanut Butter Cookie. Two of their Uber bars in Roasted Nut Roll and Bananas Foster.
I had a hard time deciding whether to try the peanut butter cookie or roasted nut roll first. I have never had an Uber bar so I went with that one.
It was so good. I loved all the different nuts in it – roasted almonds, cashews, roasted peanuts, pecans, and roasted macadamia nuts. Yes, it tasted just as delicious as it sounds.
Larabars are gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, non-GMO, vegan, and kosher.
I think I might try these as pre-run fuel.
Speaking of running, I can’t remember if I mentioned that Danny and I are running a 5k on Saturday. I think Marlene is going to come out and run it with us too!
It’s just a small local race and raises funds for the Sarcoma Foundation of America. It’s a nice race. It’s close to home and last year they had raffles and free Italian ice, which the kids loved (okay, I loved it too).
Last year, Danny and my stepmom both placed for their age groups.
Last year’s race:
The kids are signed up for the 1k again this year!
The only thing I’m worried about is that it’s supposed to be 90 degrees on Saturday. Yay.
Have a wonderful day!
- Ever have a Larabar? Favorite flavor?
- Any races coming up?
- Do you like small races or big races?
Larabar sent me some of their bars to try out and review on my blog. All opinions are my own.
