My training schedule included an 11k run today. I ran none.
My IT band felt a little achy today, but not too bad. Still, I thought it’d be best to give it another day’s rest before running on it.
11k tomorrow, or else a heck of a bike ride! Am considering getting a second opinion on my IT band/psoas thing. It doesn’t hurt to do that, right?
My husband and I had a date tonight. Out for dinner at Calories, where I had the most delicious beef tenderloin ever. So good. Served with eggplant, polenta, and asparagus. Then hit up the local cinema and watched X-Men: First Class. We were going to go see The Bridesmaids, but sadly it was sold out.
FYI – we both liked X-Men. My husband commented at the end that he thought that this new X-men movie blew the others out of the water. Here’s Lainey’s review, which is far more entertaining and knowledgeable than anything I could ever put together.
You know what topped the movie, though? I resisted the pretzel M&M’s my husband bought at the movie. You know what made that possible? Knowing that I’m going to have a treat tomorrow. I’ve got a plan and I’m sticking to it.
I’ve been thinking of what I’d like to have as a treat for a couple of days now. I have it narrowed down to (a) homemade cake balls or (b) one of my favourite chocolate cakes ever, called Ding-a-ling Cake. It’s my grandma’s recipe and has so much confectioner’s sugar in the icing that my teeth are practically aching right now. I’m leaning toward the chocolate cake – with a cold glass of milk on the side. I’ll let you know tomorrow what I decide.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend! Any workouts in your plans?
