1. Shin Splints. Ouch.
I may be a bit overdramatic about a lot of other things, but I pride myself in a pretty high pain tolerance. Thanks to that tolerance, I didn't think twice about my "leg bones hurt" when I ran. I thought that probably came with the territory of running, since I generally don't think of running as being a "comfortable" activity anyways. Thankfully, John tried to use my legs as a foot rest one night, and he noticed I winced when he propped his feet up on my legs. He explained I probably have shin splints from my not-so-perfect running form... Yay!
Sadly, I don't think I can blame that on shin splints...
Tomorrow I'm going to ask my coach if he has any tricks I should try before going to the internet for help, and I'm hoping I won't have to take a break from training (seriously, what is wrong with me? I never would have said that a year ago). I just don't want to get behind!
2. Eating woes.
I may be on the right track with my exercise habits, but my diet is a different story. I am the world's worst eater. This week alone I've had ice cream, cookies, and mac and cheese, but I can only remember one time this week I consumed any leafy greens. Yikes. I have to dress semi-nice next weekend for a party, and I'd prefer to not look like a cow. This will involve me eating more like a lady than a linebacker for the next seven days (and if I can't do that, I'm doomed).
3. Ulta Haul
4. Quiz Me
This is going to sound so dorky, but did anyone else take quizzes when they were in middle school, like "Which one of the Mean Girls are you?" or "How do you win your crush over?" Come on, I know I can't be alone! Well, thanks to Buzzfeed, I feel like a middle schooler again, because I have been obsessed with taking quizzes lately! My two favorites? Which Disney Princess and which Jennifer Lawrence are you?
Okay, you caught me... I may just like the quiz results: Belle is my ultimate favorite princess and J.Law is flawless in Silver Linings.
5. This week's motto:
Me thinks Cookie Monster has the right idea...
Oh boy, it always comes back to the second thing on my list! The struggle versus cookies is real, folks.
