Curbs are not my friend 

So yesterday was supposed to be a rest day but here in New Jersey is was sunny and seventy degrees. It was too nice to pass up!!

I ran a nice and easy three miles. I had forgotten how nice it was to run with the sun in your face and a nice breeze….not a gusty wind. I ignored my watch and just meandered along. My foot was a little sore but I think it was just from normal wear and tear. Nothing to worry about. 

My attempt at a “running selfie”

My legs were a little sluggish from the six the day before and the double  workout I previously. I did the Total Body Cardio Fix in the morning and Upper Body Fix after work. 

Today I had initially planned on taking as the rest day but after dropping my car off at the shop the forecasted rain still hadn’t appeared so I decided to run today. The next two days are supposed to be cold and rainy, gotta run in the good weather when I can. The run was going great, the humidity was a new twist but not overwhelming. I got about two and a half miles in and encountered a couple walking their dogs. I attempted to do the courteous thing and step off the sidewalk and go around them. That went well, it was the stepping back on that did me in. I half stepped on the curb and my left foot rolled out, I felt a pop and stopped cold. I stopped my watch, I am a runner after all, and sat on the curb for a second. I tentatively moved it around and I didn’t cry so I got up. I walked for a bit and then pushed forward. I was still a couple miles from the house and had to get back somehow. I finished my run with minimal pain and then completed Upper Body Fix for the day. Normally that would have been done this morning but I overslept a tad. 

My foot hurts but isn’t swollen or bruised so I’m thinking I just twisted it. I went to yoga hoping that might help, it didn’t hurt at least. Now I’m currently icing and elevating. I think I will take that rest day tomorrow though. 

Ice and my cuddle buddy

Tonight I made a new treat. I mixed one cup of frozen strawberries and three quarters of a cup of plain Greek yogurt. Along with a splash of lemon juice and a teaspoon of raw honey. I combined all the ingredients in my personal size cup that came with my ninja blender. Five minutes later I had a delicious treat that just needed to be chilled in the freezer for a bit. It was delicious! Next time I’ll try a combo of blueberries and strawberries and add lime instead. It’s nice to have a treat now and then.

   

 

Now I’m on a mission to find a recipe that I can use the ground chicken I’ve been saving for God knows how long in the freezer. Wish me luck!

Until next time!
