After my legs felt sore on Wednesday morning’s run, I decided to do the Long & Lean routine from the Tone It Up Beach Babe DVD. However, I didn’t pop in the DVD. I have done the routine so many times that I have it memorized 🙂
I scrambled two eggs, steamed some green beans, and mixed it together with deli meat turkey and tomatillo sauce. I also had my Tone It Up Bombshell Spell, a sweeter version of the metabolism boosting Meta-D. I ate my apple before lunch. Lunch was a salad with leftover salmon, brussels sprouts, slivered almonds, and balsamic vinegar.
I had great plans on coming home, getting in a solid 3 mile run, and working through the Tone It Up Bridal Babe workout. The run didn’t start great and never improved. I went .25 miles and stopped to do some lunges and squats to stretch it out. I pushed myself to complete the full mile and stopped again to stretch. I realized at that point that it just wasn’t my day so I decided that I would push through the second mile and then either walk/run or just walk the rest of it. Even using 1 min walk, 1 min run, my legs felt slow and tight. At home I took out the Wedding Edition and selected three moves that worked the shoulders/core/back/arms and did 3 sets of 15 reps of each.
I hate when I have a run like that. It makes me feel so down. I had read on another blog that their bad runs to make them thankful for the good ones which are usually taken for granted. I tried to keep that in mind and knew I was going out the next day so I would have a chance to make up for it. I focused on the positive parts of the trip, that I got in 3.43 miles towards my goal and got some great photos from the park, instead of the negative. There’s always tomorrow 🙂
I left my camera alone after that, but finally ate the carrots and a larabar on our way to a wedding meeting. I ate some almonds/raisins while making “Sloppy Joes” for dinner. The recipe called for ground turkey, three peppers, one onion, and a variety of spices! It was awesome 🙂
