Tonights run was a toughie! I thought I was never going to hit two miles and I was pretty darn certain my calves were going to burst into flames at any moment! But before I cover the workout, lets do dinner?
Like I said before, I work retail which means working whack job hours. For example, I didn’t leave my store tonight till 10 p.m which also means no cooking meals at home for me! Yes, I do know I can pack a lunch but I somehow always find myself rushing to run out the door to work and I can’t seem to throw something together and I lack a lunchbox currently. Have no fear though, my goal for next week is to pack a meal every day! Okay, so I’m going to try my hardest because with moving and everything else going on my world is going to be a tad crazy! Today’s dinner was absolutely fabulous and satisfied every single one of my taste buds. Half of a mozzarella prosciutto sandwich and a side salad topped with the best balsamic vinaigrette dressing you will ever have from the cafe in my store!
You might have already guessed this but yes I do work at Nordstrom! I love the cafe and I always try to choose a healthy option for my meals, for example: a half sandwich and half salad or a cup of soup and half salad. Their tomato basil soup is on point! Now on to my run! The second day of training is a shorter two mile run and by all heaven was I glad it was only two miles. I have never felt pain in my calves like I did tonight. It made the run extra challenging and my time a little slower. The whole time I was running I kept repeating mantra’s in my head, my favorite being “It’s okay to feel uncomfortable” which I got from Julie. I guess I was trying to make myself think the pain I was in was just me being uncomfortable, but sadly it was just straight up pain! But what ever gets me through the run, right?! I promised I would remember to take a picture of my stats and guess what! I remembered! Snaps for Kelsey!
About a 12 minute mile, not to shabby for the immense pain I was feeling in my calves! I’m hoping to find some miraculous cure for this issue, so if any of y’all know something holla at your girl so I can get back to running my 9:30-10 minute miles! Wow, this issue is slowin me down! But seriously, holla if you know of some way I can make this problem go poof! Goodnight y’all, see ya in the mornin!
