Well those 5 days off for Thanksgiving were much-needed but it makes Monday that much harder.
Although our departure time from Ithaca was pretty early on Sunday morning, I wanted to get one last run in because the scenery is just so surreal. I had no expectations on how far I was going to go, I just know I promised I would be back in an hour…
..and just like that, I was back in an hour. I am more impressed with my timeliness than I am with my run…
I even stopped to take some pictures..
…darn, I miss this.
Without leaving much time to spare after my run, I was forced to eat breakfast as we were heading out the door.
Literally, heading out the door. Classy.
With a heavy mileage 5 days, Monday was just a crossfit day…and I was not about the whole waking up early the Monday morning after a long vacation to run.
But today (Tuesday) was a different story. With a primarily shoulder workout at crossfit later on, I figured I could handle a nice little morning run.
Short and sweet to kick off the morning. My breakfast was also pretty darn sweet. I had an oatmeal craving so I made a nice little Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal bowl.1/3 Cup Oatmeal 2 Egg whites 2 Tbsp. Pumpkin Puree 1 tsp Maca Powder Pumpkin Pie Spice Maple Extract Pumpkin Seeds
I am 100% incapable of making food look pretty, especially oatmeal. I always think its going to turn out like…
Close, right?! Ha Ha
Fast forward hours later and I got my shoulders annihilated at Crossfit. It was painfully awesome and felt great to get some solid strength in after a week of just running.
Well it has certainly been a little tough getting back into work mode after a great holiday but it’s almost Wednesday! And soon it will be almost Christmas! 🙂 Positive thinking!
