My shins don’t always hurt. They get better once I get used to jogging. Right now… they hurt. Today they even hurt on my lunch time walk.
I decided perhaps I’d try buying compression sleeves of some sorts. I went to The Running Room after work to buy some. The very nice lady got asking me some questions and strongly urged me NOT to buy shin sleeves. She thinks I should properly introduce myself to running before I decide if I need a compression sleeve. I decided to heed her advice. She suggested I join them for a free run on either Wednesday nights at 6pm or Sunday mornings at 8:30. I am such a chicken though!
I came home and decided to ask the expert runner herself, Lynn, about her running experience. She recommended the Couch to 5K Program. To be honest, the thought of walking BORES me. BUT, I have decided to try it. My shins need me to take it easy on them… and maybe this will help me in the long run. I will start this weekend. Perhaps one day I will also try the free running group at the running room.
So… as for today’s food…
Breakfast: toast with almond butter, not pictured (5), apple sauce w/ spoonful of apple butter (2)
Snack was an apple at my desk (1)
Lunch was all over the place thanks to a 2 1/2 hour presentation at work. We had a lawyer come in and teach us about privacy/consent. I just LOVE listening to lawyers talk for over 2 hours (for those who don’t know… my beloved is a Lawyer). So… lunch was a taco salad with avocado, weighed and confirmed (2), cheese (2), veggies and salsa (0). Followed by a chocolate pumpkin protein cake (2)
Dinner was lazy… leftover FF cottage cheese (2), banana bread made on the weekend (1) with PB&J frosting (1)
Dessert was the rest of my Liberte Lemon yogurt (2)
Water: 2L – thank you long-winded Lawyer… my water intake is down because I was stuck in your meeting!
Before we part ways for the night… I want to say a special
