Morning! Although itâ€™s a Sunday, itâ€™s technically a work day for me. Iâ€™m taking tomorrow off to spend time with my sister-in-law, and I have a major deadline looming for one of my freelance articles. Eck! Time to buckle down.
A wonderful Sunday breakfast:
I made Hodgsonâ€™s Mills whole wheat waffles, but I mixed in some yummy pumpkin pie spices to the batter, like cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg.
The waffles were topped with my wonderful Pumpkin Yogurt!
Instead of using agave nectar to sweeten the Pumpkin Yogurt, I mixed in maple syrup. It was the perfect waffle topping!
Although I havenâ€™t officially begun to train for the triathlon, Iâ€™m trying to prepare my body for lovely two-a-days by getting back into cycling and swimming. Once my foot feels better, Iâ€™ll be integrating running into my schedule.
Iâ€™m tracking my post-marathon workouts on this spreadsheet, which Iâ€™ll eventually be updating with my triathlon training plan. A link to the spreadsheet is located on the left of the blog under â€œTraining Plan.â€
I must admit that Iâ€™m surprised how quickly my body bounced back from Sundayâ€™s marathon (I canâ€™t believe it was only a week ago!). With the exception of the irritated tendon in my foot, I felt great within 72 hours. Thereâ€™s all sorts of rules about when youâ€™re â€˜supposeâ€™ to begin exercising again post-marathon, but I just listened to my body (and didnâ€™t runâ€¦ I think running, regardless of the foot, wouldâ€™ve felt rough). Slow and steady wins the proverbial race, if not the literal one! 🙂
