Hmm…How do I summarize these final 3 days in Ithaca after Thanksgiving..
With Pictures of Course…
I don’t usually run the day after a long-run but when you don’t have access to a gym and the sun is shinning bright, you just have to do things a little different. The weather was perfect. I didn’t stop to take a picture because I was too busy embracing reality and all its beauty .
My ‘posterior tibial tendon’ has been acting up a bit and it wasn’t feeling great on this run so despite everything else being perfect, I cut my run short at 6 miles. However, I wasn’t ready to cut my workout short so I found a small area and did a short Home Wod. I did 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 Squat, Burpee, Pushup. Darn. That was rough in the snow after a total of 16 miles in two days…
With snow covered spandex and wet gloves, I was ready to be done… and was anxously awaiting my eggs with Nuttzo and a side of cinnamon roasted butternut squash 🙂
I was not a fan of this whole tendon acting up so I went down to the lake after a nice little nap and stuck my feet in the ice-cold water.
I have a feeling that is not what they mean by the term, ‘ice’…I also don’t think that it was great way to wake up from a cozy nap.
Ended the day with some (and by some I mean..A LOT) of sushi, pad thai, and of course…Froyo.
I decided to take today (Saturday) off because I my legs are pretty sore and I am not about to risk an injury for a run. Instead, we spent the day shopping around Downtown Ithaca. It wouldn’t be a complete Ithaca trip without picking up our favorite Finger Lake wines and a stop at the Ithaca Bakery.
Because when in Ithaca…
This week was about enjoying a Thanksgiving break in a beautiful place with beautiful people. I was lucky enough to go on glorious runs and I had plenty of wholesome meals but I also was lucky enough to be lazy, take long/relaxing naps and eat many delicious meals and desserts.
I like to limit myself to one or two cheat meals a week but every once in a while you need to just LIVE.
I hope to get out for one last beautiful, Ithaca run tomorrow morning before we head out. But we’ll see if my legs have something else in mind…
Enjoy your Saturday and don’t forget to just LIVE 🙂
