While I kept an eye on the women’s final match of the French Open, I started baking! I made a dozen Bacon and Egg Muffins and then a batch of Sweet Potato Applesauce Bites.
I love my new little mini muffin tin…these little bites really are just bite size and perfect for an after workout snack or when I just need a bit of something. I am trying not to eat so many nuts and hope having something like this made up will help! But, yes, darn it, they are even more delicious with a bit of almond butter on top… what isn’t?
Then we had breakfast and waited a full hour before getting into our running gear and heading outside.
I have not been running much at all lately. And I am paying for it when I do. On Monday we did a 5k to get in our 5 by the 5th run, and even though I thought I stretched well afterward, I had really dead legs all afternoon and a few cramps during the night.
The Captain thinks it was because 5k was too far after not having run for almost a month… so today, I decided to only do a loop around the park which maps out to 3.4 k. And after, I stretched for a full 10 minutes and will get in a nice walk after lunch, to keep my muscles loose and engaged… perhaps another stretch too, before an epsom salts soak in the tub.
I also plan to spend the evening in my Tommie Copper compression tights!
Not running sucks. And it is my own fault. I have been concentrating so much on my strength/resistance training and have let the running go. Not a good idea I know now, unless I decide to give it up altogether, and I am not even contemplating that!
So, balance, as in all things… something I have just never been good at.
Okay, moving right along…..
You all know that I love me some Handful.
But do you do know that Handful is moving their production to the U.S.A. ? You can score a great deal on some product and help move their financial goals along, too. Check it out at this web site link and place an order, or even just make a pledge.

Okay, it’s off to make some lunch… how is your Saturday shaping up?
