Calf Sleeves and Coffee

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.

Today’s Workout

  • BodyPump

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?
