I think those pants really might be magical! (These, in case you’re curious.) I wore them to go on my training run this morning, and I was absolutely terrified to leave behind my knee straps — especially since lately, my knees have been bothering me a bit even with the knee straps, and even if I’m not running.
Whoa. And the best part?… No knee pain!!
See the imprint of the pants on my leg? 😉 The only downside, during the summer, is that they’re pretty hot. But if that’s what it takes to have pain-free knees, I’ll take it. Especially if it comes along with something like this:
The splits are all over the place because we were doing intervals, but whatever. Remember when I set a goal a couple of months ago to complete a race at a sub-9:00mm pace? Yeah, I never really thought that would happen, race or no race. Then again, I never really thought I’d ever run further than I had at that point (about three and a half miles) either.
So, to recap: I love my magic pants, they are awesome, and totally worth every penny. If only something like that existed for feet / ankles…
Chocolate Cheerios, banana, and almond milk. And because I decided this needed some protein, I stirred peanut flour into the almond milk, but apparently I didn’t stir very thoroughly, which explains the clumps. Oh well.
Lest you think I am kidding when I say I am a cereal monster these days… I drove myself crazy to get my hands on this Indigo Morning cereal.
Sad to say, I didn’t really like it very much. The flakes — which are sort of puffed flakes, a texture I found pretty strange — aren’t all that flavorful, and the berries were sort of sour instead of sweet. I guess it’s okay that I didn’t love it, considering how difficult it was to find, but still.
And so much for my saying that I’d be making pinole with polenta…
Ah, yeah. I decided this would be much more authentic and effective. The polenta is too coarsely ground to hold together!
That’s better. Kind of like a weird floppy cookie. 😉
My exciting lunchtime jaunt today, by the way, was to go pick up my bib for Sunday’s race. I am easily entertained, it seems.
I was also trying to buy Motrin, but as it turns out, adult Motrin has been discontinued. Excuse me? That is the basis of my diet!! Not happy.
Have a lovely Friday / weekend / whatever.
