Why, you ask?
Well it's summer and I'm a teacher.....not a lot of "work" that I need to do which leaves tons of time for working out. I also have a gym membership. Those two things combined are really coming in handy right now that it is melt-your-face-off hot outside! I did 2 miles yesterday on the treadmill at the gym and 2 today. I also sneak-ed in an extra .5 on the track. These miles made me feel good. Since I'm still having some ITB pain, I'm keeping it to 2 miles for now. Then I stop, stretch, and use the roller if it's around. If I have time (like today) I'll get some more miles on the track. But considering it's an inside track that takes 14 laps to make a mile....I won't be doing that too often.
Oh....I'm also spoiled because I received my second massage in one week. He he he. I got a couples massage for Husband and I last week after his Tough Mudder race. He was so thankful that someone could work out all his knots! The lady asked him after why his legs and knees were so banged up! Last week I also received a coupon to one of my favorite salons/spas. All I had to do was write a review on Google Places and they'd give me 50% off any massage I wanted! Husband was going golfing today so I posted my review and booked my massage! I really wanted a hot stone massage, but I ended up with a 90 minute regular massage because the person I was scheduled with got sick and the lady who took over hadn't finished her hot stone therapy training. Oh well. I still feel amazing now!
I then treated myself to some Red Mango after. Mmmmm! If you haven't experienced Red Mango, it's a frozen yogurt bar. You serve yourself from 12 different flavor choices and then top your flavor with any of the toppings from the bar (fruit, nuts, cookies, candy, chocolate.....etc.). It's amazing. And certified Gluten Free! Can't get much better.
So yea.....I spoiled myself today. But it's only 2:00 and I have a kitchen that trolls must have gotten loose in last night because it's a total mess! My spoiled princess moment is sadly ending. I've become Cinderella again :(
Enjoy your day! Beat that heat and happy running!
