Oh boy am I still feeling the soreness from Monday. I always do this to myself! I lift super hard on Monday and then am sore for the next 2-3 days. This probably isn’t the best for my training, yet at the same time I don’t regret it!
I wanted to run some hills this morning, so I ran to a near-by neighborhood that has some decent inclines. It took me 15 minutes to run there, and then for the next 20 minutes, I ran up and down the hills, making sure to maintain good form on the way up!
After everyone saw me run past their house about 5 times, I ran back home. It was a really good workout that was tough but not too tough since I already did a track workout on Monday.
Today it was all about the free food.
I scored this cup for having a punch card filled.
16 oz. decaf vanilla soy cappuccino
A little too sweet for me! I asked them to go light on the syrup, but I think they forgot.
There was a potluck at school today!
And of course a few sweet treats thrown in!
I was on my own for dinner, so leftover Chicken and Artichoke Hotdish it was.
I had a pretty sizable snack after school today, so I wasn’t all that hungry when I got home.
And an big, red, crunchy apple on the side!
Yesterday I was trying to make an appointment with my massage therapist, but she is out of two for a couple of weeks, so she recommended a few other individuals she works with. One of these individuals does trigger point therapy. I have heard of trigger point therapy before, but I don’t know much about it. My massage therapist said you leave your clothes on and do not lay down like you do for a massage. That kind of bummed me out because half of the reason I enjoy massages is for the relaxation part. But now, after hearing her recommend trigger point therapy, I’m intrigued and want to give it a try.
Do anyone know anything about trigger point therapy? Please do share!
