Must be Monday. I feel like I’m in one of those old V8 commercials. I’m pretty sure it’s my body’s way of telling me to lay off the booze and meat and go raw for a few days.
So I’m sitting in my little cubicle at work and devouring a veggie sandwich with cucumber, avocado, tomato, purple onions, roasted red peppers and romaine lettuce, and I’m washing it down with a greek salad. (forgot my camera today; no pics). When you’re feeling sluggish, the best thing you can do is eat some green things!
I’ve got some edamame and lentils I need to unload from the fridge so for dinner I’m going to throw them in with some corn, red peppers, tomato, basil, scallions and mozzarella with balsamic dressing for a great big salad.
Since I’m now in my “tapering off” phase of half-marathon training, tonight will be an eeeeasy three mile run. The weather outside is perfect, calm, 62°. Ahhhh.
Lately all I have to do is think about running and it immediately uplifts me. What “they” say about exercise improving your mental health is so, so true.
After spending a day cooped up in a cramped office, sitting under blinding flourescents in a less-than-ergonomic office chair, running is what absolutely keeps me from going insane(r).
