Rest Days the Sweet Tooth Runner way
|June 23, 2011||Posted by Sweet Tooth Runner under Uncategorized|
HELLOOO lovelies!! Haha reading your confessions from yesterday made me crack up so much!! You guys are too funny!
Ok, so today was a rest day for me. I used to HATE them/never do them, but now I love and EMBRACE them! They are proven to make you a better and stronger athlete with less chance of developing injury, and even the elites take them, so they must be good for ya!
Sweet Tooth Runner’s definition of a rest day: A day when you just chill, let your body relax, and eat lots.
So putting this into practise…
There was a lot of this today:
Lying down and just chilling. The sun came out for a few minutes when I was walking Buddy and I took full advantage. The sun makes me so HAPPY!
There was a few
thousand episodes of Criminal Minds…
…which I have clearly watched too much of, because now I even have dreams about it! And they are SCARY!!
And much reading and drooling over the recipes in this book! I have a lot of parties this weekend, so I’ll be taking stuff from here…
I am The Cupcake Girl. Whenever I go to a party, I bring cupcakes. So there’ll be a lot of cupcake baking over the next few days, including a lot of frosting consumption, and I’m definitely not complaining
…and fell into the random guy next to me. It was awkward enough, but somehow managed to make it even MORE awkward by joking about us ‘skipping first base’. He didn’t look amused.
I’ll have to get a big jar next time cos my oats never all fit in the jars! And I highly recommend leaving a REALLY thick layer at the bottom. Best thing EVER!!
Reader Glenda emailed me today to tell me that I should microwave my stuffed dates for 30 seconds. And I did. AMAZING!! I am never going back to the normal way!! THANKS Glenda!!
Lunch was a HUGE salad!
Avocado, broccoli, peppers and sweetcorn topped with Sabra hummus and with a multigrain wrap on the side
There was a SECOND round of OIAJ in the afternoon! I just can’t get enough!
Oats in a not-very-empty cashew buttah jar!
And my current FAVOURITE sandwich!!
Crunchy peanut butter, apple, banana and jam sandwich. It. Rocks.
THAT is a special package containing Sweet Tooth giveaway thingies for you guys! Woop! I’ll post the review+giveaway soon so stay tuned!!
Do you take rest days? What do you do on them? I always make sure I have at least one a week, and more if I’m feeling it!
What is your fave sandwich? Mine changes on a weekly basis, but it’s definitely the crunchy PB, apple, banana and jam at the mo!
Got any plans for Friday or the weekend? MORE RUNNING WOOOOOOO!!! Ok, so just a few slow miles, but running is running and I can’t WAIT!!
LOVE y’all, enjoy the rest of your week!!
