This might be the ugliest WIAW yet…but it’s okay because I have a recipe post or two to send your way soon that will include at least half decent pictures…
I’m including some more carbalicious eats from last night in here…
I’m not going to lie — I ate a LOT of that carrot spread on my sandwich and all those kale chips last night, but I still wanted something sweet so I went ahead and had the grapes. They’re from Chile and I don’t intend to let something that’s travelled further than I have in my life go bad in my fridge…if I buy something NOT from around here, I should at least eat it, don’t you think? For the love of fruit…
I crashed hard last night and slept like a babaaaayy.
Now for today’s eats…
unphotographed: a handful (or two) of chocolates, a banana, a HUGE carrot, peanut butter fingers, coffees
I was hungry today. Trying to focus on those carbs still! I ended up biking for quite a while at the gym. I thought I was not teaching my class so I did a bit of a light spin pre-bootcamp, but I ended up teaching. I was cautious with the hip BUT it felt pretty darn good so I got into it today. Even without a microphone, I felt like myself teaching again and I can honestly say it was FUN! I caught myself smiling a lot today–and that’s how it should be!
Now I’m going to go to bed after a quick foam roll…something is better than nothing!
I was reading one of the triathlon books I have (“Your Best Triathlon” – Joe Friel) and I picked up on one thing in particular:
“When a triathlete has poor core strength it may show up in several ways. It’s most obvious in running. Poor core strength is evident in a dropping hip on the side of the recovery leg with the support-leg knee collapsing inward regardless of what the foot may be doing. Especially in running, injury is common when core strength is inadequate.”
HI SUMMARY OF MY ISSUE!
Seriously, core tips, successful runners. I know you’re reading this!
Annnnnyways, I have swimming in the morning, but I think I am going to sleep in and clean my apartment before my dietitian appointment. I can swim in the late morning/early afternoon and then do the three assignments I have for Friday — don’t hate me if I’m M I A and you love me.
Help me with my core issue. Seriously.
Eat anything delish today?
