Hi friends! It feels good to sit down and write out a meal and workout plan this week. I definitely feel a lot more on track when I have a schedule as my guide.
After my race, I have been taking it easy with yoga and cycling in order to recover and heal my knee. Well my knee still wasn’t feeling great so I saw my sports doctor on Friday for a check-up. Good news, bad news scenario…
Good: my knee has not gotten worse — still showing symptoms prepatellar bursitis (inflammation of the barsae sacs of the knee). Continue to cycle and do yoga in order to strengthen and heal.
Bad: no running, basketball or Crossfit for two weeks and after another check-up.
Things could be worse. I am itching to really SWEAT and feel those wonderful endorphins. So I’m going to try out some spinning classes (starting today!) and get my downward dog on in a 100 degree studio. That should do the trick. Of course I wish I could run, play and lift but I know that needs to wait and I’m thankful I have other options.
- Pancakes, oatmeal, quinoa flakes- breakfast
- Carrot & lentil soup and quick bake flatbread– lunch
- Endurance crackers – snacking
- Falafel with cauliflower tabbouleh– dinner
- Lemon basil chicken with broccoli, cauliflower and sweet potato – dinner
- Breakfast for dinner
