“Can’t spell legendary without leg day”
Me at the beginning: Alright alright alriiiiiight
Me, 5 minutes in: Eh this sortof sucks
Me, 8 minutes: Wait why did I want to do this
Me, 10 minutes: Why am I running
Me, 11 minutes: Why am I making these sounds
Me, 12 minutes: Why am I breathing like this
Me, 13 minutes: Why am I living
Me, 14 minutes: Why am I here on this earth
Me, 15 minutes: WHAT AM I DOING WITH MY LIFE
Me, now stopped and having a complete existential crisis on the side of the road: Oh yeah, this is why I don't run.
I’m actually having a fairly difficult time switching between rugby and soccer.
Like, I’m a defender for soccer and I have to restrain myself from throwing the person to the ground or tackling them or whatever.
And last night at soccer practice someone kicked the ball into the air and I grabbed it and then was like “wait, wrong sport” and everyone was staring at me because I was just standing there holding the ball.
Multi-sport athlete problems.
The only opinion of my body that matters is my own.
Follow me on instagram and twitter! I’m going to start posting more pics and things about my sports and how my workouts are going.
Plus I post a lot of food pics on instagram, so yeah.
- Cara Cara Navel Oranges (THEY’RE FUCKING PINK ON THE INSIDE)
- Organic low-fat cheese sticks
- Sweet Potato chips
- Smoked almonds
- Banana chips
- Cinnamon Puffins cereal (organic and pretty good for you)
- Gorilla Munch cereal (ONLY 3 INGREDIENTS AND MINIMALLY PROCESSED! plus it’s like a healthier kix)
- Carrot sticks
- Greek yogurt
- Low sugar/ low fat strawberry preserves
- Whole grain sourdough bread
- Dried apricots
- Organic, no sugar added applesauce packets
When I got home I portioned out the carrots, apricots, almonds, chips and cereal into individual snack baggies.
It makes it easy to both grab them on the go, and avoid over-eating! Plus I’m a broke college student and it’s cheaper to do this myself instead of paying for packaging.
Another note: I have a meal plan for my lunches and dinners so this is like, snacks and breakfast stuff.
Give me your best ideas!
I never liked running or genuinely wanted to run and then I got a knee injury that prevents me from running and now all I want to do is run.
I’m thinking this feeling will pass after the first week back to HIIT sprints.
But yeah not going to take being able bodies for granted again.
So my recovery from knee surgery is going slower than planned, and I’ll be lucky to get released back to rowing and MMA in mid-January like I’m supposed to.
Also, my Muay Thai/ conditioning coach has left my home gym.
And my main coach (wrestling/bjj) has torn his MCL.
And the gym has delayed the opening of the new branch up where I am for college, so that sucks too.
The good news though is that when I do return to sports, I have someone to row with and compete with! One of the girls in the sorority I’m joining used to row and wants to get back into it, so we’re planning to row together and I’m super excited about that.
Gotta fix my knee first though.
The original fast food.
