So, last night was my last body pump before the big day itself! It was good fun- I kept weights lower for squats, lunges and back, and all was fine.
I do at the moment keep imagining injuries- my knee was sore for a bit and it has not been sore for years, at one point at work yesterday I convinced myself that my back was sore (I think I was just sat badly and then got up quickly and it felt weird for a minute which normally I would not even notice)- possibly this is the paranoia about making it to the start line in one piece. I am starting to feel a little out of control, so I have started to make myself think about the things I can control (e.g. taking my training easy, food in the final week, packing, thinking about all those good runs that I had) to calm my nerves. It suddenly seems so close, and the last week of a half term is always so busy so I think next week will fly by! We fly out Friday night, and Andy is going to pick me up from work so I only have at home until next Thursday. Eeek!
Anyway, when I got home I had half a bag of spinach that needed using up, so I went for a green smoothie. In the blender went the spinach, a small frozen banana, some frozen cherries, 2 tsp cocoa powder, xanthan gum and some rice dream milk.
It turned out so thick it was more like melty ice cream, so I had it in a bowl instead!
I put some pb on there, but I think I should have made a sauce instead as of course, the smoothie being freezing cold, the pb did not melt! Duh. Anyway, this was delicious.
Right, catch you guys later 🙂
