I used to look at Pinterest fitness boards for workout inspiration. I never really took the whole “every damn day” thing seriously. How times have changed.
This was my coffee table after the weekend.
1) keys to tie in my shoelaces
2) 3 runs worth of hair ties/headbands
3) ace bandages for holding ice packs on my knees and shins
4) my amphipod from Bryon
5) my garmin
Not pictured: a full bag of Swedish fish & my mug of Gatorade. With Hanson’s + stretching it really is an all the time training plan.
Yoga felt really good. I enjoy working through my muscles and taking time to work out aches and pains. It was the best shivasana of my life, there was gently rolling rain outside. I probably could’ve rested there forever, just bliss.
I also love, love, love riding my bike at night. It’s so quiet and Bucktown is lovely. The rain had just stopped, and it was that perfect smell of summer.
My roommate made me stir fry which was loaded with protein - shrimp, Lima beans, water chestnuts, and eggs. So good!
All in all not a bad rest day.
