I'm not really sure why, but I have had so much energy this week. I have also been in a great mood all week. I'm going to credit both of these things to eating healthier. I have been trying to pay more attention to what I eat and when I eat it. And I think it is really paying off.
My kitchen is full of all sorts of veggies and other healthy foods. I have been making sure to eat three balanced meals a day plus a few snacks to hold me over. I have also been drinking a ton of water. Being fueled properly feels pretty amazing!
After Tuesday's break through run I decided to make Wednesday a rest day. My legs were pretty tired and I didn't want to push them too hard considering I'm running my spring half marathon next weekend (eek!). With the beautiful weather we have been having plus not running yesterday I was itching to go for a run all day today. Even though I would have liked to spend more time outside enjoying the weather, I did two shakeout miles. My legs felt terribly slow and heavy during the first mile and loosened up during the second mile. I was loving every minute of this super easy run.
I made it back to my apartment with just enough time to grab a snack before going to free yoga at my school. Normally Thursday night yoga is Pilates based and taught by a student but today it was P90X yoga. I have never done P90X yoga but boy was I excited to try it.
I was pretty nervous to hear that it was 90 minutes long, but ready to stretch out these tight legs of mine. I really enjoyed the video although a lot of the moves were pretty repetitive. By the end of the 90 minutes my whole body felt so relaxed. I am hoping to go to yoga twice next week before race day so my legs are refreshed and ready to run.
What are your weekend plans? Any races this weekend?
