So since I’m still trying to rest up whatever is going on with my hamstring, I ran a really slow 3 miles yesterday. I mean slow with walk and stretch breaks frequently. I really just had to get out and get some fresh air so I decided as long as I made it really easy on myself it would be good to warm it up and stretch it out. Since I knew it would be an easy run, I took my phone and got some lovely sunset pics!
Today I took an actual, real, full fledged, rest day. No core, no yoga, no running, nothing. It was weird. But I think, finally, my hamstring is getting back. I almost can’t feel the issue at all anymore. I am really hoping I won’t feel it even a little tomorrow morning and I can go on a run first thing.
We had a couple friends over tonight and made a taco bar and cookies. Of course I am always so focused on eating that I never think to take a pic before I’ve started, so please enjoy viewing my partially eaten dinner and the taco bar after 4 people had already attacked it. This is one of my many goals. Slow down, enjoy the food for a SECOND before chowing down. Lofty goal for me obviously.
So we made beans, brown rice with southwest taco seasoning (basically makes Spanish rice), cheese, sautéed bell peppers and onions, pico de gallo, salsa, lettuce, cilantro, hot sauce, and for the meat eaters, chicken and ground beef. It was so amazing. I started with 2, and then had a third 🙂
Hoping to get to sleep somewhat early to get going on a run tomorrow morning! Isn’t that a “you know you’re a runner when” saying???
Who has awesome runs/races planned for the weekend??
