My Sunday began with 11 miles fromTurkey Hill to Forest Home. It was an ok run. My hip flexor started acting wonky towards the end of my runs this past week. I decided to work on this now before it becomes an issue. I spoke with a fellow trail runner and friend Danielle who lifts quite a lot (it’s a hobby, she’s a power lifter) and she gave me an idea of what I can do.
So yesterday morning I went to the gym and spent an hour lifting weights. It was actually kind of traditional and challenging. I am sore today, but it’s a good sore. My goal is injury prevention, not really strength. I feel like strengthening my lower limbs in this way will help.
After that I got lunch at Greenstar, dessert at Wegmans and went to hang with my parents for a few hours. My dad showed me the plot of land he envisions for my future. It’s quaint and adorable of course. I’ll keep that idea on the back burner. I could always live out of my van there for a week or so. A vacation. Lake view through the trees and my own well! My dad should have been a real estate agent.
I also worked a bit with and talked with my mom. She’s getting spring clothes out on the floor and putting winter things away. What I like most is talking with her, even if it gets painful or not happy. She shared some unfortunate news with me, so I’ll keep that in my prayers this week.
I also picked up my mail and I have a clean bill of health at the Gyno and my Empire Pass for all the state parks came in! I can now go to all of them for free!
I ended the night taking pictures at Agava and eating dinner. A great Sunday.
Breakfast: chocolate peanut butter and banana overnight oats with cashews and pumpkin seeds
Running: REST, I did Trail Runner Body instead
