Trashed Quads

Last night I jokingly mentioned to Ben that Ashley said he should buy me fro-yo and a massage after that killer relay.

Well, he agreed and immediately went out and brought me back Yogurtland!!!God Bless that man. 

He brought me back a crazy good cup of fro-yo too! I don’t make my cup this decadent and it was a big treat. It felt kinda weird eating frozen yogurt on a Monday night though, is that weird?IMG_1357 (800x600)

I took an extra rest day yesterday and tried to run again today. Well, my quads are still super sore! I didn’t really stretch after my legs of the race and I ran faster than my chubby little legs are used to, so it’s probably that.

Anyways, I ran 5 miles today and they were PAINFULLY SORE. Super super tight. (Yes, that’s a complete sentence by the magic of blogging English.) I foam rolled when I got back. Go me.

I had overnight oats for breakfast and my egg requirement for the day needed to be met! So, I had them for lunch…IMG_1363 (800x600)

I recycled last night’s Yogurtland cup for my smoothie this afternoon. I swear my smoothies taste like dessert. IMG_1367 (600x800)

After a long day of work I headed to the gym to train 3 clients. Between work, training and traveling I’m completely exhausted. I’m probably going to transition to independent training pretty soon so I can have a more flexible schedule. We’ll see…

I’m tired. See you later.

    I should be craving froyo but instead I’m craving an eggwich now! At least I can satisfy that need in less than 12 hours.
    Hope you get your massage now. I’d say you earned it.

    Hope you feel better soon! A massage does sound amazing!! Now, that smoothie looks so so good!! What did you put in that one? I am nosey like that.

    What a unique opportunity you had to run the relay! As for tight quads, foam rolling seems like a good option. Maybe look into a sports massage? A good down dog seems to cure a lot for me. If all else fails, continue with the fro-yo. Actually, regardless… continue with the fro-yo. :)

      I didn’t talk to him often at all. I think we chatted at some point Thursday when I got to Boston, then Friday during the day for a second (?). I called him after my night leg but only had a minute and told him I almost died. It’s weird because I was sad to leave him, but once I was gone I was super into the relay.

    What kind of blender do you use?

    Once I get the ice machine fixed on my fridge I’m breaking down and buying the freaking Vitamix.

    “Super super tight.” That’s what she said, and that sentence is the reason I love reading your blog.

    What is in your smoothies that they taste like dessert. If that’s the case, I need a smoothie after every meal.

    I am so glad he bought you the deserved fro yo! Tonight my co-workers convinced me to go on a run with them after work and after my 6am spin class. Those six miles were death and now my quads are definitely upset! Massage on Friday can’t come fast enough!
