Favorite thing I’ve seen in a while. This Waldo makes me really happy. Also I have an urge to go to yoga tomorrow.
So yesterday I did a 7 mile run at a very average pace and was feeling a little better than last week. I’ve been adding a bit more protein into my diet, sometimes the whole vegetarian thing can be lacking in that category. While I’m feeling great about eating a ton of fresh and whole foods, I don’t normally count or keep track of exactly what I’m eating, like number of calories, protein etc., and I think maybe I was lacking a bit. One thing I added back in for the first time in a long time are eggs. I’ve had this yummy looking egg, cheese, avocado, sprouted wheat bagel the last 2 days as well as my almost daily smoothie for breakfast.
Yes, that is a large sized mason jar of coffee behind it. No it wasn’t full originally, that’s the starting level and I added a bunch of milk. I’m not totally coffee crazed 🙂 Anyways, I think and hope that is what the problem was last week, so I’m trying to keep better track of the exact content I’m eating this week and see how I feel.
Here’s another lovely view of my smoothie obsession. This was today’s batch:
In this batch is:
Strawberry, mango, pineapple, banana, spinach, almonds, chia seed, and water. It’s just so completely wonderful.
Today I started a run and am having a bit of pain in the tendon behind my knee connected to my hamstring so I changed things up a bit. I did a few half mile loops around my house, then called it good for running. I went inside and did a workout from NTC (Nike Training Club) and it was perfect as well as something I’ve been meaning to add more to my daily routine. NTC is a free app from Nike that has all different kind of workouts, at different levels, and tells/shows you how to do them. It is really great. I am not a member at a gym so I often miss the core building/weight lifting element that I should be incorporating and this is a great way for me to do it. Core muscle is so super important to help prevent injury and be a better runner. This pain I’m having was a huge reminder of that.
Have you ever used NTC?
Are there other great apps out there that do a good job?
