Run It Out

by Meghann on May 18, 2012

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
  • walnuts
  • strawberries


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? ;)
