Thanks to everyone who commented with words of wisdom yesterday. I took everyone’s advice and ran with it – new shoes, compressed, kept it on ice when I was at home and rested it. You guys are so smart and that’s why we’re friends. 🙂
When I can’t workout because of silly pain in my Achilles, I choose to counteract any sort of hard work (physically and mentally) and just waste away. I kid, but really, I got my hair did last night and indulged at Sweet Tomatoes, a salad buffet with lots of ridiculous carbs on the side. We’re talking pizza, breadsticks, pastas, and breads. So. Good. Here’s some yummy salad for your viewing pleasure.
I got that green stuff on the bottom thinking it was celery or something, but it was a bizarre texture and not delightful. Gross. I topped the salad with some olive oil and balsamic vinegar. I guess I’ve finally trained myself to really be disgusted by most salad dressings that those kinds of places offer.
I followed that with lots of bread and then this beauty:
That’s chocolate lava cake underneath swirled ice cream. Uh huh, so good. 🙂
And then for the hair! Before, it was fake blonde hair. Now, it’s REALLY BRIGHT fake blonde hair. Just in time for summer. Now if only it would look healthier? Oh, no, that will never happen.
Woo hoo I’m even more blonde than before.
In the world of activity, I did nothing. I sat at a desk for 8 hours yesterday and followed it with some traffic sitting, and then sitting in a hair salon for two hours. Lots of sitting, lots of eating, no activity. Obviously I’m not thrilled about it, but I do need to focus on rehabbing my Achilles so I can actually run smartly. Good news – after icing it and compressing it for a while yesterday, I am already feeling tons better. I think one more day off of it and I’ll be ready to run again! In the mean time, I’m hoping to get in a swim or something else that’s low impact.
In other exciting news, there will be a new pair of shoes for me to use in a few days and I cannot wait to test them out! It was a tough choice, but I think I went with the right ones. We shall see!
What’s your favorite salad dressing? Is it home made? Um, if so, please share with me. 🙂
Something you must have in order to enjoy your salad? –Sadly, mine is cheese. I must have it!
What are some good ways to workout that are low impact? I’m thinking yoga at some point this week, but I neeeeeed some cardio!
