Streeeeeetch

That’s what I really wanted today. A good stretch!

My legs are still feeling tight from Saturday’s 15k! I know I pushed it hard, and being a little sore still just tells me that I pushed it to the limits.

I decided to take a 30 minute break from studying to hit the gym. Normally, I hate the elliptical, but I didn’t today. I just cruised along at the slowest pace ever for 20 minutes. It felt good to get the blood flowing in my legs, since I pretty much sit all day.

After my non-workout, I did this stretching routine from Runner’s World Magazine:

It felt soo good!

Before I left, I ate another Honeycrisp Apple. Seriously, best fruit on the planet. I’m not even a huge apple fan and I LOVE these babies.

Lunch and dinner are only 5 hours apart on Monday nights (I have to eat at 5:30 pm) so that was all I needed.

 

I warmed up some leftover Chicken and Sweet Potato Dumplings from the other night for dinner and added some peas:

Still good, a couple days later!

A few of you asked for the Chicken and Sweet potato dumplings recipe, but honestly we didn’t follow it exactly. For starters, we used chicken, not turkey. For veggies we used broccoli, carrot, onion, mushroom, kale, okra, and cauliflower. Other than that we pretty much followed the recipe, but had to add more chicken broth because we had so many veggies!

(I tried kale, okra, AND cauliflower! All things on my LIST!) 😀

Once I got home from class, I had  a small glass of vanilla soymilk…

and a handful of dark chocolate peanut m&m’s. I have been craving these little guys!

I can’t wait to run in the morning! Two days off will do that to me. 😀

  1. Those M&M’s look so good! And, so did the glass of milk actually…………I think I am going to go pour myself one now. Which also reminds me that I haven’t had enough calicum today as I forgot to eat my yogurt earlier. Good thing I saw that glass of milk. =)

  2. I love alternating a run day with an elliptical day; I feel so intense and focused when I run and I can chill and zone out on the elliptical. It’s a good balance!

  3. Honeycrisp’s are my favorite apple ever 🙂

    Dark chocolate peanut M&M’s?? Are these new? And if not, how did I not know about them?

    Have fun running in the morning!

  4. I still have yet to try the Honeycrisp. How does it taste like?
    And hee hee, you have gotten me on an M & M crave too…I like to pick out the blue ones, though. I swear they taste better.

  5. Have a good run 🙂 Glad you got a good stretch in! Oh and is there a reason why you drink soy milk instead of just milk? We have both in our house and I switch back and forth, but I was just wondering what your reason was!! 🙂

  6. Looks like you are doing exactly what your body needs! Good for you. I know what you mean, I haven’t been able to run for a few days now because I’ve been deathly ill and I am itching to get out there and run again. I must keep reminding myself that if I push it now, I will never get better!

    Glad your body is feeling rested and relaxed….enjoy your day hun!

  7. I loved that section in last month’s Runner’s World! Such good stretches 🙂

    Love Honeycrisp apples too!

  8. We did all of those poses in yoga yesterday! They are amazing!
