Remember how I was aware that I was running too many days in a row? Back to back? Well, it totally came back to kick me in the
I’ve had an injury in my left quad for years and it flares up every time I start to run too much back to back…and well, today it came back. Boo.
I had an 11 miler planned for Saturday but depending on how it feels, I won’t run it at the earliest until Sunday. Maybe. I would rather be safe than sorry since I just signed up for THIS RACE IN JANUARY IN MIAMI!!!
Anyhow, I ran today when I probably shouldn’t have because my leg hurt the whole time, but I couldn’t pass up being here for the first time in a year…I just love running in Mission Bay, San Diego.
How could you not love that?
I ran the course I posted this morning and enjoyed every moment of it. Makes me wish I didn’t move around a lot and stayed in SD. Oh I miss it…
I met up with an old college friend that I basically had every class with when I attended USD (almost three years ago; OMG!) and we went out for Thai Food! It’s been a long time since I’ve had Thai, so I was excited. We went to one of her favorite Thai places in La Jolla called spice & rice:
It’s small and cute, which is my kind of restaurant/cafe…I’m not a big fan or big places or chain restaurants.
I ordered one of the “Must Haves” of the Month: Summer Rolls
And the To-fu soup with tofu and vegetarian broth.
I missed the part about the sauce being served on the summer rolls and not on the side, so I had to deal with a bit of excess sauce…which was a bit too sweet to begin with in my opinion…
And the soup was pretty bland. Tasted like water with cabbage, mushrooms, spinach, glass noodles and tofu.
I went off and visited some more friends and bosses from when I worked at the Marine Corp last year, and then headed home and brave the rush hour traffic. I found this at the grocery store the other day and bought the two flavors they had, Cookie Dough being one of them:
Have you seen these new Luna Protein bars?!
It actually didn’t have much of a cookie dough flavor and somehow, tasted more like a mocha bar!? The consistency reminded me of Pure Protein Bars, along with the kinda starchy/cardboardy taste they have…know what I mean? I also munched on two clementines with it to keep me awake…
Isn’t this an awesome view though? I was definitely in awww as I drove down the freeway…
Tomorrow I’m resting my leg up at home, maybe doing a little bit of strength training and walking to Target to pick up some Probiotics and my meds…and hopefully finishing up my Christmas Shopping. Somehow I am just not in the Christmas mood this year. What is wrong with me?
