I think I am officially back to running! While I was gone, I ran a half-marathon and then continued to train for a full marathon until my IT band (the muscle on the outside of my left leg, affecting my left knee) flared up. It was devastating and I didn’t want to stop. So I didn’t. Which as you all can guess made it worse. So I finally listened to the “Doctor’s orders” and took time off of running AND the elliptical.
This morning was my second day running this week with NO pain! Hooray! And as for the rest of me, I feel great! My energy levels are more than they should be after my longest day at work ever…
I know this is a terrible picture, but I feel like it gives you a glimpse into how I felt at work today. Trapped and blah. As soon as I left though I felt better!
Lunch was a spinach salad with red onion, celery, raisins and roasted chickpeas and tossed in TJ’s Cilantro Dressing. Ever since I saw Julie’s Guest Post for Tina, I’ve wanted to try roasting Chickpeas and putting them on a salad. They were SO good! Especially with the raisins!
And some more Sweet Potato soup!
Breakfast was your traditional bowl of Oats with banana and egg whites and Cinnamon Raisin PB on top and a side of vitamins!
Tomorrow is FRIDAY!!
What’s your ideal work environment? Today I was stuck in a quiet room with no windows, which is NOT ideal for me! I love noise and a view of the outside!
