My stupid broken toe has been keeping me up for the last few nights. Sleep deprivation is not cool. I felt foggy and “off my game” all day.
The good news is that I was able to start my day with our weekly crepe breakfast date. Breakfast (and coffee, of course) has a way of making everything better:)
I set out for my run from the Perch. After a couple days of easy running, my legs wanted to run. The broken toe did not.
I’ve noticed some soreness from changing my stride. Hopefully one injury does not beget another. I figured an ice bath was a good idea.
They really help me to bounce back faster.
I stopped by my bank to make a deposit. My bank gives me cookies. They’re really good cookies. I’m not saying I make my money decisions based solely on cookies, but it sure doesn’t hurt. Insert a Pavlov’s dog/ classical conditioning joke here.
I’m sure it’s the southerner in me, but I get so excited when a Lilly Pulitzer box arrives in the mail. Yea for preppy beach prints!
I normally run a double on Wednesdays, but two runs didn’t seem wise today. I decided to do some cross-training at OrangeTheory. The class was at 5:30. I needed to eat a light dinner beforehand or else I would be starving afterwards.
So…I had romaine spears with cracked pepper and parmesan.
No utensils needed. I just use them as dippers.
And then guacamole. I can not get enough avocados. I used to hate them until I became a vegetarian. Now I crave them.
OrangeTheory. Thank you to my instructor, Sunil for the modifications. I biked instead of running on the treadmill, and I sucked. It’s like I broke my brain when I broke my toe. Blah. I just stayed confused and had bad form.
But, a bad workout is better than no workout. I feel like I say it daily, but I was so thankful for my friend, Corrie, Sunil, and AC/DC (Back In Black was my jam).
So…here’s to getting a good night’s sleep! If not, I’ll go hang out at my bank and eat their cookies tomorrow.
A random picture that reminded me that limitations are often in my mind.
Do you eat before an evening workout?
Do you take ice baths?
