I’ve been taking it pretty easy the past few days since my calves were still tight from Saturday’s race as well as pain in my quad and ankles. I’ve been sticking to upper body workouts at the gym and today my calves finally felt better so I did some cardio at the gym.
My quad is still sore so I did really light and easy cardio: 25 minutes on the arc trainer, 20 slow minutes on the treadmill, and 12 minutes on the stationary bike.
All while watching the Kardashians because you have to pass that cardio time somehow.
This past weekend, Danny got some new shoes for marathon training and of course I had to get myself a new pair. I found a pair of Nikes for pretty cheap and I decided to get them since I have been wearing my old Nikes for everything and they’re getting some wear on them.
I wore them to the gym today and the kids wanted me to take a picture of their shoes too.
Danny got Brooks Ravenna 6 for his Chicago Marathon training.
I’m debating whether or not I should go to CrossFit tonight. I missed Tuesday so I haven’t been all week but we’re running a 5k on Saturday so I don’t want to be too sore for the race.
I made a delicious breakfast the other day. I used to make this all the time but I haven’t made it in forever – peach oatmeal yogurt parfait.
You can check out the recipe here. It’s really easy and so good. I cut up a peach and mixed it with a little bit of brown sugar and cinnamon. Then I added oatmeal to the bottom of the jar, added the peaches, a few blueberries, and topped it with plain Greek yogurt mixed with one stevia packet.
The warm oatmeal and cold yogurt make such a delicious creamy combo!
Have a great day!
