I hope you are having a wonderful sun-filled weekend :)
I am kind of in shock - as I write this, I am sitting in the sun on my front balcony, eating some delicious quinoa salad (recipe to come!)
I have some kind of devastating news: I have seriously injured my foot.
I have a sneaking suspicion that it has something to do with the fact that I ran a half marathon without really training for it, which was VERY silly and clearly not worth it since all I want to do is go out running and biking in this ridiculously beautiful weather we're having but instead I am stuck inside (well, outside on my balcony) icing my elevated foot.
Total rookie move. This is why training is SO IMPORTANT!!! Anyway, it is totally self-inflicted so I'll just have to take it easy and be in tune with my body in the meantime so that I give it the time that it needs to heal so that I don't aggravate it any more.
Fitness for the Week
This week will be another recovery week *sniffles* so I will focus on stretching (without putting undue stress on my foot) and some more core workouts and arm strength training. Making the best of a not-so-ideal situation is clearly my forte ;)
Tuesday: Core and arm workout
Thursday: Core workout
Sunday: Funday ;)
Prep for the Week
I feel like I might go a bit crazy trying to hold myself back from going out running and whatnot, but it will be better in the long-run so that I don't keep injuring myself and end up taking even longer to heal. Sad face.
But, it just means I have to be more creative with my workouts and focus on my nutrition - prepare yourselves for lots of recipes coming your way ;)
On the schedule for tonight:
- Cut up veggies
- Make hummus
- Cook brown rice
- Make granola bars
- Bake tofu for salads and wraps
Also, I started a recipe page so now it will be easy for you to reference anything that I post on my blog - I'm going to try and post some more fun recipes soon!!
Question of the Day:
- Have you had a running injury before? Any type of foot-related injury? What did you do to get through the healing period? Any suggestions??
I have never really had a running injury before, so I feel a little bit like a fish out of water...
Have a great end of your weekend, and stay healthy and happy!
