I am excited to finish reading this one (yes, I’ve only half started and that’s while I was walking on the treadmill. Keep active while being lazy, am I right?) because it is all about marathons. I have the half marathon issue, and while the half is my favourite distance to run, the thought of a full marathon is always swirling around in my brain. Of course, that takes a lot of time, dedication, and work – it is a huge commitment! – but one day it will happen!
Let’s rewind to last night. I slept in (as per usual. It’s been happening too much lately) and decided I would go for a run after work. The thing is though, this time I ACTUALLY DID! I was tempted to just flop down on the couch and enjoy some of my mom’s Christmas baking, but I knew I’d feel one hundred times better, and more productive, if I got a run in and ate a healthy dinner BEFORE any treats.
I completed 3 miles on the treadmill listening to the Songza app on my phone. I seriously love that app – you can find every song you could ever imagine, and it’s fun how you can pick your playlist according to the time of day and whatnot. Anyway, I was starved after the run, and I may have picked at a few sweet treats before devouring this:
Now, we come to today. And we are all alive, because the Mayans were wrong! Suckas!
I started my day with four miles on the treadmill as well as some random strength moves after, like standing leg lifts, calf raises, lateral lunges, push ups, and some ab moves. My abs are so sore from the other day – apparently that’s what happens when you don’t train your core regularly! I even stretched for a while after and made the effort to foam roll for about ten minutes last night.
I now leave you with a wonderful Christmas song – can you guess why? Have the best Friday ever, friends!
