After a whirlwind week of visiting my brother in Los Angeles, hanging out with the folks at Dole in Northern Malibu, and running the Savannah Marathon, it felt so good to sleep in my own bed last night with my own pillows, my boyfriend, and my dog. Maddie hasn’t left my side since I’ve walked in the door and I think I’ve traumatized her into thinking that next time I might leave for good.
Don’t worry girl, mama is right here. 🙂
Thanks to the time change, I felt like I was sleeping in this morning when my alarm went off at 7:00. I took advantage of all the extra light outside and took Maddie for a mile walk around the neighborhood.
When I returned I spent 15 minutes really stretching my legs out. I’m going to try and take a gentle yoga class this afternoon to really open my hips up. They’re extra tight right now and in need of some TLC.
Besides my tight hips, the rest of my body is recovering just fine. I’m still high on my runner’s high and contemplating signing up for my next marathon sooner rather than later. I forgot how much I LOVE marathons. I missed that high you feel from finishing and just want to experience that over and over again. I had burnt out on marathons last fall, but I think I’m ready to really jump back into training and accomplish something amazing. 😉
After my stretches I had a big bowl of cereal with ricotta and apple.
- 1/2 cup Cinnamon Life
- 1/2 cup Cocoa Brown Rice Crispies
- 1/4 cup Good Run Granola
- Pumpkin Butter
According to the nutritionist I spoke with last week, I need to cut back on the carbs in the morning and amp up the protein, but I wasn’t quite ready to make that switch this morning. Maybe I’ll just cut back my daily cereal bowls to twice a week and focus on high protein breakfasts the other days of the week. Give and take, right? 😉
I have a TON of work to catch up on.
Have a great Monday everyone!!
