I am not sure why, but my run on Monday has made me very sore. Perhaps it was the wind, or just the added distance running outside, but I have run over 5 miles before on the treadmill and do not remember being hobbled.
Having to wear high heel shoes to work doesn't help. I could barely walk out of the gym today, make the 20 feet trek to my office, and throw myself in my chair. I thought someone would find me, laying in the parking lot, hugging my gym bag and whimpering.
We were supposed to do bootcamp this morning, which is a torturous 45 minutes cardio/ab thing Heather designed to break up the monotony of circuit....but no one showed up so I just ran on the treadmill. Did I say this the other day? Who knows. I find the lack of the soda hooch is sucking my brain power...but the number one reason running outside is better than running on the treadmill? You can't just stop when you are running outside. I mean you can STOP, but you have to run back...or else make a phone call for a pick up. But when you run outside, you have to run back. On the treadmill, when you want to quit...you can just hop off.
So I did. After 36 minutes and 2.72 miles. Damn...I should have just made it to 3 miles. But I did burn 400 calories. So score!
Tonight for dinner I will be trying a new vegetable called brussels sprouts. I am scared. They look very vegetable like. But last year I fell in love with broccoli, so anything is possible. I believe I will roast them the oven with salt, pepper, and olive oil. Any suggestions are welcome. Remember, the goal is to get me to like them.
Happy Wednesday my friends! Go forth and conquer!
