|LOVE Instagram. I don't look as old and sallow as I usually do.|
I went on Instagram today. I'm really not sure what it is. Twitter with pictures? It only took seconds to set up on my android. And I have to admit, it makes me look pretty good. All my wrinkles and facial flaws gone! Almost like I was air brushed. Why did I not know about this miracle app earlier? I saw Instagram photos on Twitter and Facebook, but wasn't sure what it was or how to do it. I tell you, I'm becoming more internet savvy by the day. Thank God I have young, hip clients who keep me in the know. Sadly I learned today that it's not considered "cool" to have a blog among the younger crowd. Who knew? I guess I'll just have to act my age. I'm on Blogger, FB, Twitter and Instagram. Three out of four ain't too shabby. My client did tell me that I should just lose the blog. Said it sounded like too much work:) Ah kids! What do they know?
Wednesdays are my most dreaded running day of the week. We did 6 hill repeats yesterday. My gal Monica told me that the hill loop we run is actually 1K. So all in all, I ended up running just over 8K. My IT band was still a little sore, but the more I ran, the more it loosened up. I rolled it once I got home, but woke up sore today. I'm debating about whether or not to go for a full movement assessment. I know that I have weak glutes and my balance is pitiful. I'm surprised I can even stay upright. I know of a couple of people who have come in and lectured at the Running Room who do these assessments. It will make me a better runner, so I'm thinking that I will definitely benefit from it.
Today's clinic talk was about Bio-mechanics and Runner's Knee. I don't think I have runners knee, but I know that my alignment's off. Goes back to my bad balance. I definitely need to do some exercises to strengthen my glutes, quads and my core overall. Today's speaker is a pilates instructor, so that is an option. Yoga was something I enjoyed but just don't have the time for now. I need to make time somehow, but running 5 days a week and adding a day or two of yoga would keep me from home way too much. I also commute which takes a big chunk out of my day. I'm definitely going to look into Wii yoga. At least it's something. Who am I kidding? Unsupervised Yoga? I will surely break myself. That's how I pulled my IT band in the first place! I wasn't being supervised properly.
|My lunch from Mr. Greek. I love Greek food!|
|What I did not eat for lunch. This was taken just|
before I left. My client ate 2 pieces of bread.
Today's food was super boring. I don't really care, but I basically ate the same thing all day long. I ate hard boiled eggs for breakfast, chicken Greek salad for lunch, an apple and mini Clif bar for my before run snack, a chicken Greek salad for dinner and an orange. My dinner salad was HUGE and extremely filling. I definitely didn't drink enough water today, or this week in general. I've been on the road most of the week and I tend to drink less when I'm in my car all day. I hate having to use the bathroom at gas stations so much. Just an excuse and not a good reason to slack on my water intake! Runners need lots and lots of water. Actually everybody does, not just runners. Well, with the exception of camels and most cats. I say that because my small cat never drinks water, but my obese cat drinks a lot. Diabetic perhaps?
A short boring post. Not much to share from the last two days. See how mundane and boring my life is? I'm surprised I have 72 followers on Twitter already. Although truth be told most of them follow me because I followed them first. Oh, and to all the dirty girls who follow me and I then have to block, Poonapalooza does not mean what you think it does. Now go put some clothes on before you mother sees you!
