Quick update on my injury- My hip/groin has flared up a bit since the relay. No surprise. Definitely too much too soon after not running at all for 3 weeks and not really being ready to start running again. I ran almost 16 miles total during the 28 or so hours it took us to complete the relay. I ran my last leg a little faster than planned and I just don’t think my hip/groin was happy about all that business.
Don’t mind the “crotch on fire” comment.
I have also done something to my rib. I’m not sure exactly, but it’s not good. I’m pretty sure I did it in the relay van reaching over the seat for some food after my last run. Obviously. Who the heck hurts a rib reaching for food? Oh yes, that’s me.
So… this week I’m
trying going to really rest. No running or “jolking” for a couple days at least. Instead I’m taking a deep breath, taking care of my men, my body and my mind.
Easier said than done, yes, but I’m going to make that my priority this week.
It might take me a couple days or so to get the full relay recap up, but I just don’t want to leave anything out.
Yesterday, I celebrated being home with an almond coconut mocha of course
along with lots and lots of hugs from these guys.
The boys had their fair share of belVita biscuits too.
I didn’t bring them home any souvenirs from my trip, but I made them happy with a few of the biscuits I stashed in my bag.
Also, totally random, but when I got home last night from the gym (and from spending $50 at Pick Up Stix getting dinner for us), this NutriBullet had mysteriously showed up.
I have no idea where it came from. There isn’t a note or anything in the package. It might be from the LA marathon as NutriBullet was a sponsor for that event, but I don’t remember putting my name into a contest or anything.
I’m not complaining. I’m actually ridiculously excited about this little gem. So much so that I went outside this morning to take a picture and the boys locked me out of the house. Nice huh? I wasn’t locked out too long, but long enough that this post is going to be one of the shortest ones ever.
Okay, off to work on the recap post and take care of my little men.
What do you look forward to the most after you get home from a trip?
Do you have a NutriBullet? Is it better than The Magic Bullet? What should I make with it?
