It’s been two days of no running for me after my speed workout. My legs have been feeling SORE.
After that trip to IKEA, I knew a running on Thursday morning was not happening. I needed to rest. And so I decided to use my rest day that day. I found this image on Instagram and it describes exactly how I felt.
For reasons that I could not control, I had to go to bed a 11 pm last night, which is late for me. I still woke up this morning and attempted to run. Even though I felt less tired, my quads were beyond sore. with every foot strike, I could feel so much pain in my legs. So I just stopped and decided to walk instead.
I walked for 30 minutes which is better than nothing, but I guess I won’t be able to call this week a 6-days of running week. It’s fine, I’ll try again next week.
On the other hand, I’m pretty proud of myself with my healthy eating throughout the week. It’s not that I’m completely unhealthy with my food but usually I’m lazy to cook, and boyfriend is a bad influence because of his infinite love for pizza and french fries.
I don’t like to call any food a bad food, but I can say I’ve been eating more nourishing foods this week. Breakfast for example, have been composed by eggs and toast, or eggs and oats.
I like my oats cold. I don’t do them the night before. I just poor some fruit, almond milk, honey, and that’s my natural version of cereal.
This particular combination of eggs and oats really make me feel fuller for longer.
Lunches have been salads made of spinach, strawberries, balsamic glaze, tuna, and parmesan cheese.
Or the same salad accompanied with a tuna sandwich, no mayo included.
Next goal when it comes to my eating is try to cut down a little bit on sugar. Sugar intake has been high this week and I know that is because I need to eat more protein, healthy fats, and fibers.
Eating proteins is the very hard for me, and that’s why I don’t count macros. Sometimes I’m 20 grams away of hitting my daily goal and all I want is a bowl of cereal, chips, or any other source of simple carbs.
What do you struggle the most when it comes to your eating?
What is your favorite breakfast?
Have you ever used the Sport Legs as a supplement for sore muscles? does it really work?
I’ve been considering to use it for sometime now, but would like to hear some opinions first.
