Who would have thought walking would make me sore…

by Alison on April 21, 2010

I woke up sore in all sorts of bizarre places.  The tops of my ankles (where the shin connects to the foot), one butt cheek, my arms (no surpise there, thanks leash pulling monsters).  So since yesterday was supposed to be rest and it wasn’t I did some cross training today on the bike and a lower body workout on the bowflex, tomorrow I’ll do the upper body.  I iced the sore ankles tonight but they still feel stiff.  Tomorrow the plan is to run and it looks like the weather plans to cooperate.  I have a 10k race on Sunday so I don’t want to injure myself and I plan to therefore play it by ear.

For breakfast I had a non fat latte, and a peanut butter, and banana sandwich. Then I ran around doing stupid errands.  For lunch I had leftover curries again, tasty and easy.  While reading blogs and fooling around on facebook I was so exhausted that I actually fell asleep for a while, not deeply but for someone who never sleeps during the day this is news.  Not sure why I’m so tired, but I am.  For dinner I made a peanut chicken soba salad with a side of chinese brocoli with some hoisin sauce.  The salad was excellent, I make sure to add the dressing to the still warm chicken and noodles so they absorb all the flavours.  Ben and I watched Food Inc to get outraged again, well I got outraged…  And then proceeded to order more grass fed beef to restock the freezer, we are running low.  The next delivery date is April 30th.  Nothing like local grass fed and pasture finished beef and pork!  Our garden will supply most of the veggies for the summer so we will be pretty good on the local organic side of eating this summer, I can’t wait.

Boring it is Fitness for Vitality, they do very small 5 and 10ks each month, the Jan-March ones were at Seward Park the April-June ones are at Myrtle Edwards Park. They give a portion to shoes for foster kids through Jock and Jill. If you like sandwich thins you should check out Thomas’s Bagel Thins, taste like bagels only thin!

I am loving that soba salad – definitely going on my lunch menu next week – my husband wouldn’t touch that with a ten foot pole.

It’s almost Friday!!!!!!!!!

Your comment on my blog made me laugh when your sister teased you about eating your beloved cow – how horrible!

Good luck with the 10K!

I have yet to make soba noodles. I’m pretty sure the Asian market we shop at has it but I just haven’t had a craving for it. I think it’s awesome that you grow your own garden. We buy a lot of our veggies at the Asian market or from this old lady who has a huge plot of land and grows all these veggies. So yummy and cheap!

I actually pick them up at TOP foods or Safeway, in the refrigerator section.
