day #5 of Get Running
Thursday, August 01, 2013
Well, I feel like I might be stuck on the week 1 routine for awhile until I can learn to not get so winded. That's okay by me though, as long as I am improving.
Nothing really all that new to report though. Except that I didn't feel like dying as much.
I really bad back/shoulder pain yesterday and the day before, but it was gone when I woke up this morning, so I was very happy. I think it's mostly the way I sleep and maybe lack of sleep, I hadn't been sleeping well the last 2 days and had to get up early. Last night I forced myself to sleep on my back, and also went to bed right at 9pm, and I think it really helped.
I ended up burning my foot on my flat iron after doing my hair today...I stepped on it carelessly after putting it on the floor to cool off...ugh. So now my foot near my toes has a painful burn feeling on it, but it doesn't actually look like it's burned...weird. Anyways, I think it's a good thing tomorrow is another day off from running because of it, although I'll have to find something else to do that won't use the foot too much if it's still bothering me.
Yesterday I visited my school's gym that I wasn't aware was there and looked inside it. They don't have much but they have ellipticals which is my favorite gym machine, so I'm excited. I can work out there now after class or something.
Hmmm...what else? Well I'm making a vegan tortiere (French Canadian Meat pie) tonight...it's almost done and it is going to be sooooo good I can just feel it/smell it haha. The "meat" base is made of cauliflower and walnuts mostly. recipe here:
only I used whole wheat vegan crust instead
