Morning! This morning shot was taken while in park, not on the run. (ps, Nashvillians – did you hear about the new restaurant that’s replacing part of Hunter’s?)I’ve had some weird pain in my right foot for the past week or so — I’m pretty sure it’s a little case of good old plantar fasciitis, which is one of the most common ailments distance runners face. I’m hoping that a few days of rest and perhaps a new pair of shoes (hello, Black Friday!) should do the trick :).
In the meantime, I’m hitting the gym! Luckily I got some new toys from Aurorae to use while I’m there. I’m a pretty big fan of resistance bands because they’re simple, light, and very portable! This resistance band kit would be great for traveling as well as at-home workouts. It even comes with a door strap attachment and sample workout book so that you can increase the variety of movements/amount of resistance. I did a bunch of arm exercises yesterday and can feel the burn this morning.
As for the rest of my workout, I went with a Nike Training Club routine. After 2,753 minutes of working out with this app, I still think it never gets old.
And here’s something new: our latest Cook Smarts creation:Salmon + lemons skewered and grilled, with a drizzle of lemon-yogurt dressing. They were delicious but I think I loved the citrus salad even more!This meal took a fair amount of prep work, but once I knocked that out in the morning/weekend, it was easy to assemble on a weeknight. Plus I got to use za’atar which is the most fun seasoning of all time (Alanna!).My soundtrack for the day: Sjowgren! Just discovered this band and wish they had more songs. Time to hit the repeat button again.
- What band/artist have you been digging lately?
- Pre-meal prep work: yay or nay?
- Ever had plantar fasciitis? Will I recover with a few days off?
