Good morning! I took it pretty easy at today’s Bikram class to make sure I didn’t overstretch my hamstrings. I do that sometimes and it leaves them sore, which is the last thing I want before the big day. Today is my last real day of exercise except for maybe a mile or two on Saturday to loosen up my legs. I’m getting excited!!
I’m not usually a big vest person, but I thought this drapey one from Old Navy would be good for the boho / peasant styles this spring.
A lighter yogurt bowl since I have an earlier lunch date.
In the mix:
- 1 container Oikos 0% plain mixed with 1t chia seeds, 1T peanut flour, 1/2 packet stevia and a bit of water
- 1/4 cup Kashi Go Lean
- 1/2 Banana
I was talking to LB (my best friend that’s also running the marathon with me) about how the taper is going this morning. We both found that even though we’re exercising less, we’re extra hungry. We also are both very tired even though we’re not waring ourselves out with vigorous exercise. Seems like everything is happening the opposite of how it’s supposed to! It’s definitely a strange time physically and psychologically, and we’re just going with it.

And then you can check your phone to see how much butt I’m kicking:)

Question of the day:
- If you could choose any US city to live in for one year only, what would it be?
My job moves me for one year only, and while I don’t get much of a choice in where I will be I have been thinking about where I would like to be. I’m thinking somewhere warmer than here! Atlanta? Austin? Tuscon? Savannah?
