Today was a little crazy…
I ran 10 miles in the morning with Mesa. I was surprised to see the roads so snow covered!
|The sun was shining, though – what a difference that makes!|
I immediately ate, hopped in the shower, and jetted up to the Cities to meet with Rasa Troup. I’ve decided to continue to work with a nutritionist to further refine what I’m fueling myself with and also to just plain learn more, which will allow me to coach even better. I learned a TON from Donna, but just wanted a different perspective. Rasa does the nutrition plans and counseling for the U of MN women’s XC and track teams and was also an Olympain (3k steeple), so really knows top level nutrition and performance. I’m excited! I’ll share more later.
Then I drove down to Red Wing to meet Jim Patterson for a much needed hip adjustment. WOW, what a difference that makes! No more tightness in that right leg and glute!!
Then a fun run with two wonderful friends in Red Wing, and a trip to my favorite Wal-Mart (hey, now, don’t judge! I was also at the Food Co-op 2 days ago… wish I could shop 100% there, but I have NO idea what that would cost us… and on my runner salary… well… Wal-Mart it is :)) to find some food to stock our almost-bare fridge with. Nate was excited to have food in the house again :).
Colbert Report actually just interviewed a guy who paints pictures of Wal-Marts. Video here. $40,000 for a large painting. Guess I’ll have to start saving.
I’m spent! Night y’all!
