Here are just a few things that are on my mind today:
I am in a ‘breakfast rut.’ I am one of those people who finds a breakfast they love and therefore eats it every.single.morning… we’re talking for like a year time span. I basically overdose on one breakfast item to the point where I can’t even stand to look at it. Right now, I only ever really eat a sweet potato hash with two eggs and some fruit. It’s a delicious and very healthy breakfast, but I am sick of it. My goal for this month, is to start adding variety to my breakfast. I would love to start experimenting with breakfast smoothies (since my Vitamix is collecting dust). I need a breakfast intervention… Suggestions welcome!
I love my “Official” Boston Marathon Photos… except they did not capture any of the photos on the actual course. Luckily, my family was at mile 16 and they captured some action shots. I bit the bullet and paid the $30 per photo because I just loved these two shots.. I am a sucker for these things. I hope to make a gallery wall of race photos in my home gym!
I took an Epsom Salt Bath last night and it made all of the difference. It has now been 10 days since the Boston Marathon, but I have still been feeling some lingering fatigue. I have resumed training this week, but things are still really tight (i.e. my quads). It helped to sit in the tub with some Epsom Salts last night for 20 minutes… and it was super relaxing at the same time. I honestly felt much better waking up this morning and had a great spin class!
It made me happy to see that so many of you agreed with my post on Tuesday… it helps to know that I’m not alone! I feel much better now. Thank you:)
One thing I look forward to each day is foam rolling and stretching. For the hour or so I get to relax at night, I usually spend this time stretching and foam rolling. Often this is done while watching tv or reading. I am really, really trying to stretch more often! I never have time in the morning after my workouts, so at night before bed is the best I can do!
