I'm not gonna lie, my absence of posting and ultimate laziness has been fueled in part by the fact that I have been in a state of wallowing since my IT bands started acting up again like crazy. (My calf muscles are a bit knotty too to tell ya the truth...but I'll take that ANY DAY over the IT bands...) I've decided though that ENOUGH IS ENOUGH with wallowing. I can still do many things, this could be so so so much worse, I've had worse injuries before, blah blah blah. So anyways. I'm snapping myself outta this stat. My legs are feeling MARGINALLY better though after loooong sessions of foam rolling. I even made it through 3 miles yesterday with minimal pain/discomfort which is HUGE. My knees/legs still feel off though, so I know something is still not right...we'll see what the doctor says Friday...
In any case, yesterday afternoon I celebrated my first sunscreen run of the season. Yay! I wear sunscreen on my face every day religiously, but yesterday was the first day I was heading out that I felt like I could just start sizzling immediately. Fact: I fail epically at using spray-on sunscreen. I always decide that I am super capable of spraying my own back, totally miss, and end up inhaling a big nauseating cloud of sunscreen along the way...oops. It's reasons like this that people get married, isn't it? Someone will be obligated to apply your sunscreen? I knew it...
We celebrated today with princess cupcakes...(because what ISN'T more fun when you put a crown on it???)
|Coach Melinda made these!!! How awesome is she?!|
You know you wish you had a bracelet that is this badass. Saturday is our eagerly anticipated 5K race! I am super pumped to get decked out in pink, put on a tiara, and run with my girls. (Well, hobble maybe...hope my IT bands cooperate!!!) I cried like 18 million times when I volunteered at the fall 5K race just from the sheer wonder and cuteness of it all...I can only imagine how emotional I will be when I actually KNOW some of the girls! Can't. Wait.
END OF YEAR COUNTDOWN: 3 days, 2 hours... (I think I can, I think I can...)
What is your guilty pleasure TV show?
^ I have far too many...Glee, Real Housewives of New York, and I'm embarrassed to admit it but Secret Life of the American Teenager... (but mostly to make fun of it, I swear!!)
