I officially hung up my NYC Half Marathon medal in the “race corner” of my room. I clip all my bibs together, and as you can see, I have my 2 finisher medals out for all the world to see. Other than my recent medal addition this pile of bibs include: Broad Street Medal (check!), Zooma Annapolis necklace (in my jewelry drawer, check!) NYRR Snowflake 5K (check!), NYRR Holiday 4 Mile (check!) and a few other random ones. I love collecting my racing bibs!
I was most definitely in need of a little foam rolling action. Jackson wanted in on the fun too! I took today and yesterday off and will start back up slow tomorrow. I may stay away from running this week if I can stand it, but I wanted to give my body a rest. I plan on doing a Shred workout or hitting up the elliptical at the gym or maybe going for a bike ride. Proper recovery post races is muy importante!
I also picked up Jillian Michaels book Making the Cut: The 30-Day Diet and Fitness Plan for the Strongest, Sexiest You’>Making the Cut this weekend in NYC at a used bookstore. I got this bad boy for $7.00, hardcover! Score! I want to read it and maybe put her 30-day plan into effect. I shall let you know my thoughts as I read! I am also reading Autobiography of a Face’>Autobiography of a Face by Lucy Grealy. It’s pretty good so far, its about a young girl who was diagnosed with potentially terminal cancer and had to have part of her jaw removed at nine years old. It’s a pretty engaging book.
Also, check out my loot from kate monster from this weekend! I am in Matrix heaven! KM has a glamorous job in the big apple and was able to hook me up with some fabulous L’Oreal products! Yay for my hair! Thanks KM! You are the best!
