Still Here…

It has been just over a week since I ran my marathon and I took a full 6 days off before doing any exercise!  It has also been a week since I posted, but there really isn’t much to talk about when I’m not running at all and busy with school!  I have been sleeping soooo well and was really only crazy sore the day after the marathon.  By Tuesday, I was feeling pretty good and enjoyed the time off from working out.  I went to a 1 hour yoga class Saturday morning and did a 45 minute Yoga Download (Detox Yoga #1) on Sunday.

Today I did two POP Pilates videos from Cassie’s YouTube channel… both are incredibly tough and I’m always amazed at how graceful she looks.



Since I am not running as much, I am really trying to watch what I eat and eat more fruits and vegetables. I was eating SO MANY CARBS for the past few months when I was running all the time and I feel gross.  I don’t plan on doing another marathon this year and think I will probably train for a half marathon in spring 2013.  My next goal is looking good in my wedding dress 🙂  I will probably be running shorter distances this summer and incorporating lots of yoga and strength training.  I’ve been on a smoothie kick lately and drinking one each morning.

My smoothies usually include: frozen banana, blueberries or strawberries, spinach, peanut butter, almond milk and chia seeds.  I would like to get some vanilla protein powder that I could use instead of peanut butter sometimes but I haven’t gotten around to it yet.  (6 days of school left!)

I made a spinach, strawberry, goat cheese and sunflower seed salad last night that was really good.

I also realized today that a bunch of pink flowers bloomed around our house… I should probably walk around our new house more often.  I had no idea we had pink roses already!!

Four concerts for my kids this week!  It is going to be a tough week, but I’m looking forward to summer 🙂

  1. I think it is fun sometimes to take a little break from running and try out other things – like yoga. Especially after training so hard and so long for a marathon.
    Smoothies are the best in the summer! Love them. 🙂

  2. Good for you for taking a break! You deserve it.
