Sunday Well FinishedPosted: March 7, 2010
Another weekend has come to an end and I actually had a pretty productive afternoon/evening.
I did head out to the local running store to talk to a consultant about the Virbram Five Fingers and I also wrote a few e-mails to Ashley and Margaret. They didn’t have my color and I got a little worried because he highly stressed trail running only. Now we have a few trails around here, but I do not think I could run the same path for all of my runs. I also liked to use the trail as my long run location because it is flat and a once a week location. Apparently VFF didn’t make enough of the shoe and are in limited supplies and colors. I will continue to do research and consult, but the pavement that surround my home is always going to be a problem.
After shoe consulting I had a lovely lunch.
Green Monster and another bagel melt.
In my brown monster I had frozen raspberries, baby spinach and vanilla rice milk.
In between my everything bagel thin I had the last of my goat cheddar, avocado and cucumber. I really liked these bagel melts, I wish I could have a griddler in my office. Fresh pressed every day! No you didn’t!
After my lunch had digested it was time for my first outdoor run since December 27, 2009! I was really nervous, my heart rate was up, but my knee felt good.
I had planned on running 2.6 miles with a slight uphill at the beginning. I ended up doing 3.5 miles! I was so excited! I could “feel” my knee, but it wasn’t pain, just there. When I was finished there was no pain and that made me happy!
I felt so good that I decided to go to bikram this evening to round out my weekend. It seems to be a nice conclusion. This is not my studio, but just gives you an idea. 105 degrees of heat for 90min and 26 poses. It takes a lot of concentration and determination. I love the challenge and what it does for your bones, heart, organs and mind are just a plus.
I made it through all of the poses this time and got a bit further back in camel this time. Progress.
When I got home I took a nice long shower and then made a simple satisfying dinner with about ten glasses of water on the side.
I roasted probably my last acorn squash of the season, and cooked a Sunshine veggie burger topped with sautéed onions and mushrooms.
Alright time for Sissy and I to watch the Oscars. Who do you want to win Best Picture???? I’ve only seen Avatar!
Good Night Moon.
