Today I warmed up with a mile run, then I did chest and shoulders, then did a mile of sprints!!! They both equaled out to about a 10 minute mile. So over all I did 20 minutes of running today then did about 5 minutes as a cool down on the bike, the bike hurt my knee more than the running did honestly.
Then when I was done I immediately stretched, and when I got back to my room I foam rolled. I’m like beyond excited. Not only does this mean I can still keep on running, it means I can actually run the color vibe race in new hampshire with one of my best friends!!!!
I feel better about myself today too. Last night I pretty much gave myself a pep talk and was like look Carolann, you have come so fucking far. You have gained so much muscle, you can run farther than you ever imagined you could, and you have some fat on your stomach right now, CONGRATULATIONS YOU’RE NORMAL.
It actually really helped. I’m also taking this week to eat a lot better so I can guide myself into the whole30. One huge thing will be I’ll stop skipping breakfast when I go home, because right now I sleep until lunch like every day which is horrible. I sleep so much more at college than I do at home. When I’m home I wake up at like 8 or 9 on any given day no matter what. But today I had a veggie burger with mushrooms and spinach for lunch, I love when they actually serve healthy and good tasting things. Me and my best friend Katie are going on a sushi date really soon. I’m only gonna get like 1 roll though because I’ll probably go to dinner and have a salad, and they’re doing this special thing for finals tonight that’s a breakfast they’re serving from 8pm-10pm and I’m not gonna not go to that.
