11 hours of sleep + numerous tablespoons of garlic laterâ€¦ I am still sick. Sad face. No running for me today for sure.
One key lesson when youâ€™re training for an event and something goes awry, like illness or family emergency? Trust your training! A few days or even a week off of your training plan isnâ€™t going to do much damage. Plans â€œbuild inâ€ missed days. I do really wish I was ending marathon training on a higher note, but alas â€“ this is life. Iâ€™ve got to trust the training that Iâ€™ve put in for the last few months.
Oh oatmeal. I love thee.
In the mix:
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup almond breeze
- 1 banana
- Chia seeds galore
- Topping: brown sugar and raspberries
And I was super lazy about lunch and basically repeated dinner from last night. Standing up for longer than 5 minutes totally sucks right now.
In the burrito: vegetarian refried pinto beans, cheese, corn salsa, and lettuce. Plus roasted broccoli on the side. I need my vegetables!
I am currently locked in my office, attempting to write a freelance article on acupuncture. However, I have total brain fog and stumbled through two really important conference calls this morning, so writing is going pretty slow.
Random question: When you were younger, what was your favorite book or book series? I really hearted Sweet Valley High, mostly because Jess was so bad, but in a way I kind of admired. Elizabeth was too goody-two-shoes for me (and too much like the real-life me to be interesting).
Those books were awesome.
