Egg Poof with wilted spinach and 2 corn thins (not pictured) and coffee!
Today is going to be a good day. I can feel it- the sun is shining, I got out for my morning run, and my knee isn’t feeling too bad.
Yesterday I went to my athletic therapist who had a look at my knee- within the first five minutes I asked if I would be able to run the marathon- the answer? Yes! the pain? Nothing I’d want you to feel. She was digging into my hips with her elbows for about an hour as I moved my legs up and down left and right. She told me she’s seen 80 year old men with better flexibility than me- I told her that wasn’t a surprise because those guys usually move like cats- both agile and sprite. I on the other hand am dealing with the pain of only having a 24 year old body- perhaps when I’m 80 I will be able to do the splits- I’ll hang on to the dream for then…
This weekend seems to be loaded with homework, and since I’ve got to take care of my body- it will be loaded with yoga as well- I just bought myself a month pass at Moksha, if you haven’t been there, definitely check it out- they teach great classes- and they’re warm!
Anyways- I’m off to research a paper- finish a pot of coffee and ice my knee- Fist Pump Friday? Because today is looking that good.
Are you flexible? Do you work on it? I hate stretching- never do, never want to unless I’m in a yoga class- so now I’m back to yoga, the ultimate compliment to my insane running schedule this year.
