Mary was NOT messing around with her Jello Leg Workout. After completing her workout yesterday, my legs sure felt like jello this morning. I blame the lunges. Ouch. Lunges + 15 lb dumbbells = sore booty in the morning.
I could really feel it in the booty region when I took off for my 5 mile run this morning. It took a while for my legs to loosen up (I stopped to do a few kicks to stretch it out), but eventually my legs found their groove. You can really see the difference in my stats. My first mile was 10:00mins and my last was 8:45mins. Just goes to show you how much tired legs can slow you down, and why heavy legs workouts in the days leading up to a race would not be the best idea. If you do have a sore booty, it’s best to take it slow and treat it like a recovery run.
I came home and did a few yoga stretches to relax my legs before taking Maddie for a walk around the block.
Cereal was on the agenda for breakfast.
In the mix:
- 1/2 cup Peanut Butter Cheerios
- 1/2 cup Quaker Oatmeal Squares
- Plain Chobani
I can’t believe it’s Friday already!
What are your plans for the weekend?!
I’m running a mystery 5k on Sunday…. any guesses what it might be? 😉
