Hosting giveaways for things I love is really so fun and rewarding. I’m super pumped to be giving away such a beneficial item such as PRO Compression socks and wanted to thank them again for allowing me to! The lucky winner is…
Kalyn! She blogs at Simon Says: Live! Congrats girl. I’ll send you an email! 🙂
In other news… I TOLD YOU that writing about my workout plans jinx’s (?) me. As soon as I posted yesterday… my knee started to ache really bad and it hasn’t in months. I iced it last night and didn’t run this morning, but it’s still really achy. Since it happens every so often I’m not freaking out about it, and I’ll continue to ice and foam roll tonight and try an easy run tomorrow. If it still is achy Saturday, I won’t race the 5K I’ll just be casually jogging it. No need to get a time goal just to get injured! Ugh, I swear that EVERY TIME I do any amount of speed work I end up in pain. I pushed the pace on my 4 miler yesterday and bam, pain. Really annoying when trying to get faster/ train for 9 races!
Other than that, it’s been a pretty uneventful day. It’s rainy and humid in NYC and I’m exhausted, despite sleeping a ton. The only thing I have to share is my delicious snack from yesterday afternoon.
That would be a coconut Chobani (2%, absolutely makes the difference) with coconut cinnamon cocoa roasted sweet potato chunks. Stop what you’re doing and make these. The coconut CHO is out of this world!
In terms of supplements/ vitamins you take as a runner/athlete- what do you use? I really need to start taking glucosamine chondroitin and fish oil, both of which are supposed to be great for joints.
