so NOT one comment on smoothies and protein powder ? what up. I was even with it b/c pioneer woman happened to be talking about smoothies ???
out of the box. challenge yourself. do something new. something different.
I finally got on the trainer at my house. I needed to do a 45 minute ride and i didn't take a spin class that day, so i finally jumped on the trainer. It was quite strange to walk downstairs to the basement and get a workout in. I enjoyed it and the set up is quite nice. I have the TV and was able to watch some guilty pleasure stuff. My ass hurts. I swear I forgot the pain a bike seat causes me. I have to do 25 miles in the olympic so i need to get use to this ??? any extra advice on how to get use to butt pain ?
Next up I went for a run with my new coach and a group of runners she is training for a half. Again out of my comfort zone b/c i have been doing the nice warm treadmill. I was so happy I went. It was cold but I dressed for it and the sun was out and it was great. I wound up running 6 miles and felt great !!! I actually have some hip flexor soreness and need to get on the foam roller asap. but all in all - it was great to do 2 things that i haven't done.
hubby has the kids out with him and i am in a peaceful house, just started my sunday sauce and need to live in the this moment.
mantras, my mantra while i run is I can, I will, I am....i started saying it when i needed a boost and i swear it makes me go faster. I have a garmin so I say this as truth !!!
