Getting ready to meet Dr. Baker, the professor I was presenting with, for breakfast! The view outside our hotel room was incredible.
Pre-run coffee at home Tuesday morning!
After my run yesterday, I went to see the chiropractor. I was feeling a little discouraged because I was hoping that in taking 3 days off from running, my hamstring would feel MUCH better. Well, that didn't happen. While it hasn't been bothering me constantly during runs, just off and on, it started to shoot a little pain when I put all my weight on my left leg. It's not a sharp pain like the one I get when I run, it's just kind of dull. I wasn't having that before, so I was bummed when that started. Especially after I had taken time OFF. My chiropractor says my hips have evened out, so maybe it's just my body readjusting. We will see! If it would completely stop firing at me during runs, I'd be thrilled! When I got home from the chiropractor, I had a couple of things to do around the house and before I knew it, it was 10:30. I was starving and couldn't figure out why. Then I remembered I hadn't eaten breakfast before the chiropractor. So, I whipped this up real quick! An over easy egg, some of the ham my Dad made for Thanksgiving, and half a bagel. It was so good!
Breakfast Friday morning! Blueberry waffle, eggs, and extra crunchy bacon. Yes, please. Anyone else like to dip their waffles/pancakes in syrup? I love it!
I started my day yesterday with an 8 mile run. It was about 27 when I started, but it warmed up SO quickly. It was the perfect running weather. It felt good to get moving!
I hope your Thanksgiving is wonderful! I am thankful for each of you and cherish the friendships I have made through this blog. <3
After my run yesterday, I took Lu to the groomer, then met my Mom for an 80-minute yoga class. It felt SO good, but I definitely woke up pretty sore this morning. I think my hips are FINALLY starting to get better because I was able to move a little bit better and go deeper in a couple of things. Fingers crossed!
Our littlest angel FINALLY got her hair cut. Isn't she adorable?? She looks like a totally different dog. It had been MONTHS since she'd last had a hair cut....bad dog Mom. She just got so fluffy, I loved it.
I was CRAVING bacon yesterday, so I did my grocery shopping early in the morning so I could get some bacon for breakfast. Priorities! It was delicious.
Lots of puppy cuddles on Friday while I knocked out some computer work. We were cold, so we stayed in bed to work. It was really relaxing! And I was surprisingly productive.
I wore my new Dogwood 25k shirt on my run yesterday. I don't always love race shirts, but this one is awesome. It was super comfortable and I love the colors.
I write about whatever is going on each day. I want to use this space as a place to document my dissertation and training journeys.
