Last night after working and getting my full 2 hours of studying in I headed out in Philly with my best friend Hannah! Everywhere was super crowded and it was frigid walking around but I had a great time just getting to spend it with her. After getting home at 1, I was not excited to have to get up at 8:15 to hit the road for a long run.
When the time came I reluctantly dragged myself out of bed, bundled up against the continually harsh temperatures and hit the road. I ran the river trail which is my favorite run in Philly and ended my 13 miles at the yoga studio. Today was one of those days that I didn’t even really feel good after a mile or two temperature wise and even after going inside for our yoga class and going to breakfast I just felt like I couldn’t get warm until I finally took a shower.
The yoga class was awesome after a long run, though some of the more strength oriented poses I struggled with due to tired muscles. The stretching was awesome though; instead of just sitting around most of the day after running I got a great active recovery in.
Hannah and I went to the same breakfast place and I got a fantastic sandwich! Talk about a recovery meal!
After coming home and showering I popped a whole chicken my mom gave me before heading up here in the oven so I would have it to eat off of all week. It was so incredibly easy: pull out of freezer, cut off exterior bag, place chicken on tray and cook for 3 hours.
Nothing like treating your body right after giving it a morning beating!
