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. 😀
