Things on the running front are not going so well right now. Mentally I’m SO in the game, but physically I am riding the struggle bus! Before I left for New York it seemed like every run was better than the one before it. I was literally on a roll. Since I got home every run has felt worse than the one before it.
My calves are tight. My hamstrings are tight. My calves are tight. My calves are tight. SIGH. I’m stretching, I’m foam rolling and I know I’ll get over this hump, but it’s so frustrating! When my calves are tight running even one mile feels exhausting.
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger!
I think part of the problem is that the weather has cooled down and maybe I’m not drinking as much water as I normally do. Actually, I’m 100% sure that’s true because I just realized I am not self-consciously getting up to pee every five minutes at work!
Okay good, I’m glad we solved that problem. Starting right now this train is heading to hydration station. (Sorry, that was a bad joke.)
Despite my legs feeling like bricks I’ve been plugging along and knocking out the necessary mileage every night.
I’ve lived in Fort Lauderdale for almost four years now and I still get excited to run by the beach. I hope I never get tired of it!
Okay, so I know when we buy Greek yogurt we’re supposed to choose the plain, no-sugar added kind. Well, if you’re ever feeling like “to hell with it, I want to eat a yogurt that actually tastes good” please try this one:
This is not sponsored, but by all means Dannon please send me a case and I will post about this yogurt every day! 😉
What a world we live in that I always feel the need to tell you that the things I post about aren’t sponsored. In 2015 I feel like a lot of bloggers and online influencers started disclosing their paid posts. Hopefully that trend continues. As someone who works in marketing I have a lot of thoughts about disclosure and why I don’t think it hurts a campaign – but that’s a discussion for another day!
Do you indulge in flavored (greek) yogurts? Favorite kind?
What was the temp like on your last run?
