I am so incredibly happy that itâ€™s clementine season. I love those giant five-pound bags they sell at the store!
Henry has also developed an obsession with clementines. To get him off bottles, I started bringing him up a snack in the morning (because I used to bring him a bottle). Itâ€™s usually a slice of cheese or a piece of fruit. Clementines are his favorite, and when he sees them, he yells, â€œORAG! ORAG! ORAG!â€ and jumps up and down wildly in the crib (Itâ€™s so fun to watch his language explode recently â€“ earlier, he told me to â€˜sit down;â€™ I was floored!).
So this was my breakfast.
Eggs with spinach, red pepper, cheese
I made it to the gym this morning.
This is huge because I have been majorly, majorly slacking over the last two weeks. Far more off days than on. Far. I wrote last week about how my knees were bothering me on longer runs, so I was avoiding jogs (but I think Iâ€™m good to go on that now â€“ thankfully). And my pectoral muscle is strained (I think? I have a doctorâ€™s appointment scheduled in December to make sure itâ€™s not something else), which eliminates yoga, swimming, and kettlebells. Itâ€™s kind of meh because I was really hoping to do more, well, yoga, swimming, and kettlebells after finishing my race. As a result, Iâ€™ve been couchinâ€™ it and doing a whole lot of very little.
It was kind of nice for a while, but I eventually started to feel like a sloth, so Iâ€™m going to try to get back into it. Hence, the 30-odd minutes on the elliptical at the gym while reading a book.
For my fellow triathlon fans, Meghann just posted a great blog wrapping up her thoughts on training for an Ironman. I thought it was a great read!
I have a post on Coach Marni coming up tomorrow. Finally!
