Hey, I hope you are enjoying your weekend.
Yesterday, after body pump (where I used lighter weights as I had missed 3 weeks I think) my legs were still sore, so I thought I would try a short run as that often helps. Well, I only did 3 miles but whereas usually they loosen during the run, they didn’t at all, so when I got home I got out my yoga mat and did about 15/20 minutes of some of the “Yoga for Runners”. After my shower this was followed with Deep Freeze and some foam rolling.
I had made some breakfast the night before- muesli, chia seeds, almond milk, frozen cherries, almonds, and then I added a little vanilla almond butter. Plus some coconut water (I had some after pump so needed to finish the carton).
Originally Andy and I were going to head up to Norwich for the weekend (he has a ticket to the football) so I was going to head to Parkrun to get my weekend run in before we drove up. But we could not get a hotel, so we decided to go up for the day instead. It has worked out well because I have missed Parkrun (good to give my legs a rest I think) and can do a longer run on Sunday morning. I need to do 6 miles and was going to do that after work on Monday, but it is better to do it at the weekend.
I decided to use my new tea infuser! With peppermint tea.
It drained through before I could take the photo!
Right, off to Norwich- have a lovely weekend 🙂

I like the look of that tea infuser 🙂
ooooh that infuser looks lovely, I’m going to ask where you got it and hope you don’t say while you were on holiday 😉
Leg rest will be good, put on your compression socks tonight maybe??
I did get it on holiday but I have seen them on amazon- it was just a bit cheaper than any I had seen over here.
Good plan with the compression socks- I must get them out so I remember.
Mmm, that looks like one seriously delicious bowl of muesli 🙂
I hope your legs loosen up soon – foam rolling usually works well for me, and if I’m really tight then I’ll put some money aside for a sports massage. I must be the only person immune to the benefits of compression socks – I’ve tried two different brands and they just seem to make everything feel even worse!
Have a fab time in Norwich! My Dad comes from Kings Lynn and still supports Norwich FC through thick and thin, bless him 😉
And there should be an apostrophe in ‘King’s Lynn.’ Curse my atrocious grammar…
Ah so he would have been happy with the football today- of course as a Saints fan Andy was not!
I love compression socks for post run aches- I have Nike ones I think (they are white and orange). Not sure if I could bear to have a sports massage though- so painful!
Those tea infusers look fab! Since I did my tea blending workshop I have a reignited love for tea!
I am looking forward to your post about that 🙂
Hope you had a good day. I am doing 6 miles tomorrow as well, my legs are a little sore after 11 yesterday, so I will be doing yoga and foam rolling this evening!
That is high mileage!
Hope your run went well 🙂
Hope you enjoyed Norwich! My legs took ages to get over circuits on Monday. So my foam roller and I have been spending lots of time together this week haha.
Thanks it was fab 🙂
Yes the foam roller has been my friend too!
I bought one of those tea infusers for Iestyn, but I think it broke, I might have to invest in one for myself!
