Okay I admit it, I might have had a slight, small case of the Mondays at work today. What can I say, its hard to go back into work mode after having four days off, even with toe surgery. I comforted my ‘pain,” with an apple and a spoonful (or two) of peanut butter on the side (directly from the jar of course) as an afternoon snack. PB and apple may be one of my favorite combos. So good.
When 5 o’clock hit I was out the door and in my car with the AC-a-blowing. It was a hot one out there today! My original plan was to go home, take a nice walk and then head back to make dinner, but I decided to switch up my plan once I felt the heat take over my body when exiting the building.
Dinner was a easy one tonight. Boca burgers, roasted sweet potato “chips” and steamed broccoli
ni on the side.
I’ve had those Boca Burgers in my freezer for way to long, so when I was making my dinner list for the week, I decided it was time to break them out! Just as good as I remember. 😀
After dinner, I strapped on my sneakers, which I haven’t done since the toe surgery, and headed out for a nice 45 minute walk. My goal was to make it 60, but my toe started feeling a little funny around minute 40 or so and I was pretty close to my house at the time so I decided to turn in for the night a few minutes early. Don’t want to push it too soon and mess up my nail again!
It felt a bit strange my toe being inside a shoe, but it had to happen sooner or later, and the walk felt good overall. It was still quite hot when I went out, but not as bad as it would have been if I had gone around 5:30. And truth be told, it was a beautiful night in the neighborhood.
Don’t sprinklers make you feel like a kid? They do to me, I just want to run through them when I see them with a big, smile plastered against my face. (I didn’t tonight for the record, but I wanted to.)
I’m still going back and forth with whether or not to get up early and do strength training or to do it when I get home tomorrow. We shall see. Its almost 11 already, but its such a nice feeling when I get my workout in before the day begins.
On a side note, in preparation for my grand return to running, I am thinking I need to purchase a good pair of running shoes that have better arch support than my current ones.
What running shoes do you love to wear? Let me know!
