Good morning lovely ladies! I hope your morning is off to a lovely start! Mine sure is after my 3 mile run this morning! More on that in a few 😉 Last night Hans and I went on our daily hike. Twas wonderful with the crisp fall air. When we got back, I gave my chili leftovers a face-lift by stuffing it into a pita with some carrots. On the side, I had okra fries with ketchup. I actually prefer the chili this way rather than plain.
And moving on to my 3 mile run this morning… Ah, it was quite amazing. AND I didn’t have to stop to walk once. Sweet! I think the reason why I have felt such a passion for running these last few days is because I have been running in the forest. Forest>pavement when it comes to running. First of all, it feels less harsh on my body and I feel at one with the world. It keeps me guessing, it’s beautiful and I saw 10+ deer this morning! No need for an ipod when you can listen to the rustle of the trees 😉
When I got back from my nature run, I had a warm bowl of oats. Very plain but very satisfying.
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/2 cup almond milk, 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 banana
Thank you for the awesome beginner runner tips yesterday! It seems like most of you think that I shouldn’t push myself too hard to prevent burnout and injury. I say, great tips ladies! And keep em’ comin’ 😉 So, my next question for you is…
Which stretches should I do pre and post run to prevent injury?
