Donned my speedo today for 80 lengths of the 24 Hour Fitness pool. Seriously.

PM: Walked a couple miles. No noticeable improvement in my foot. I rarely get injured, but when I do it's never something that gets better in a week or two. 

I'll just keep plugging away with the cross training.

AM: Two mile walk. 125 push-ups, 125 sit-ups.

Had a delicious and nutritious smoothie for breakfast. 

PM: Five miles of actual running on the treadmill which is much nicer on my heel than the roads are. Cautiously optimistic but I'm still going to mostly cross train for a couple weeks.

I'll call today's workout a "cardio medley". 

1.5 miles easy running on the treadmill.

200 floors on the Stair Master torture device. Apparently this is a distance of about 4.25 miles although I'm not sure what that means.

4.25 miles pretty darn hard on the elliptical.

Allie, if you're reading this, the new auto spell check function keeps making me spell elliptical correctly. Bummer.

Or maybe "cross training potpourri".

AM: Four easy miles on the AHS track. Lots of rain. felt good.

PM: Five miles at 8 minute pace while Abby was at swim practice.

I dug down about two years into my shoe pile and pulled out an old pair of Brooks Ghost's to run in tonight. Felt way better on my achy right foot than my newer, more minimalist shoes. So it's back to the Ghostesses. 

 

My breakfast smoothie recipe.

One frozen banana in chunks.

A bunch of berries or cherries.

A pile of low fat, plain yogurt.

Two scoops protein powder.

Two tablespoons wheat germ. 

A cup or two of juice - but not acidic citrus juice.

Blend.

You're welcome.

8.5 miles on the treadmill. Foot not getting any better or any worse.

PM: Six miles around Sugarhouse/HH track.

14.5 miles of running today!

We are celebrating Andy's adoption day today as usual by going to Bucca di Beppo for dinner. After we finalized his adoption six years ago today we all went there and so we've been doing it every year since.

I ran a lot so I can eat a lot. Isn't that why we all run?
