That snowy walk this morning sure did me some good to loosen up my muscles from that long run yesterday. I’m still stretching like a mad woman to make sure nothing gets messed up before Phoenix in ELEVEN DAYS!!! (Oh, and since when do races start at 0830!? Gah! I’m used to 0630 start times!) and revving up my legs for an awesomely flat race with great friends! Yay!
So, since I had no intention of running today and well, am terrified of the snow and ice covered roads, I resorted to work’n out in the apartment. Not before fueling up with banana bread of course!
I decided to do the P90X Legs and Back because after doing it for the past few months I have felt and seen the difference in how my legs are when they run. They are so much stronger now and don’t get so fatigued during longer runs so I’m gonna keep up with that! Don’t want to break a habit that works, right?
And because that workout didn’t do much for my abs, which I’ve been neglecting, I did my good ol’ MTV Pilates DVD. When I got this DVD years ago I couldn’t do half the moves at all. Like, no joke I sat there and screamed at the TV for being too hard. But when I did it today, oh my goodness I must be doing something right because I did all the moves! I might not have done the same amount as the girl on the screen, but I did them! PILATES V I OWN YOU! hahaha…not to mention I felt freak’n awesome afterwards…and will probably hurt horribly tomorrow.
I was drinking so much water during those DVDs that it masked my hunger! When I finished and stretched a bit my stomach was raging! I wanted something that could cook while I showered so I popped a sweet potato covered in TJ’s Taco Seasoning in to the oven, along with letting a block of tofu drain out and instantly had dinner after I was clean!
My god that seasoning is spicy! I was dying while trying to eating it, pairing it up with something a little less spicy, aka my leftover Italian roasted cauliflower and plain broccoli and some ketchup, but it didn’t’ work very well.
I had no patience for the tofu that I threw in the oven after the potato so it came after all the veggies were consumed, and at that point I was pretty stuffed!
Now I’m chill’n out, icing my knee (all those squats kinda irritated it) and waiting for the Craig’s List Killer to start and my boyfriend to call…he’s coming back tomorrow! YAY!!!
