I barely did… as always. I like to blame the weather on anything. Along with other things. Busy days at work. Exhaustion… you know… the usual.
But it’s cool. We survived and we’re here. And I have a Cubs game ahead of me. Weather permitting, of course.
After a blur of a day, I came home with the promise of a wine night with my good friend Mon.
Of course, business had to be taken care of first. This included another night of The Shred. It wasn’t originally in my plan, but neither was having to charge a dead ipod.
Even though it’s possible, cardio without my ipod is rough. Some people don’t mind, but it’s the backup behind my thoughts. I specifically remember a time in college where I drove to the gym, then turned around to go all the way back to the house to get my music. Priorities.
So after another session of Level 2 of The Shred (my clear favorite of all workout dvds), I ran to the workout room for a quick 8:29 mile and cooldown mile with some ab work.
No, I still haven’t done more than just 1 or 2 miles at a time since the half marathon. If I keep it under 2 miles or stay on the elliptical, my leg doesn’t really hurt. Anything else? It aches a little. So I’m making an appointment with my trusty ol’ orthopedist.
I hate doctors, so you know this is a big step for me.
Until then? Keeping the mileage low. Almost nonexistent, really. But we’re going with the mentality that every little bit counts.
No worries, I’ve got my comfort food to make me feel better:I know. Holy avocado!
The avocado may or may not have been as ripe as it should have been. But still acceptable according to my patience level. And was a good addition to some of the turkey my mom sent back (let’s hear it for holiday leftovers! woot!), pepperjack cheese and salsa.
Before my drive back on Monday, my mom asked how much turkey I wanted. I said as much as she wanted to give me.
