I love rainy nights! We’re having a nice little storm here right now and I’m happy I don’t have to go anyplace!
My appointment with the orthopedist was fine. He didn’t really tell me anything I didn’t already know. I have IT Band Syndrome, I shouldn’t push through the pain, and I probably shouldn’t run the half marathon next weekend (whether I do or not remains to be seen). He showed me how my right quad was smaller then my left which may have contributed to my IT Band problem. Crazy! I have no idea how that happened. He said that I should start out slow, running 2 miles at a slow pace. This was actually encouraging because he was telling me I could run! He also prescribed some physical therapy which I will make an appointment for tomorrow.
Other things I am looking into for my knee:
1. An IT band strap
2. A foam roller
Anyone have advice on any of these?? I can’t find a foam roller anywhere!! I may order one online but I’d love to have one sooner then that. Suggestions?
I did have a nice work out this evening though. I ran to the gym, did 40 minutes on the elliptical and then ran home.
Once home, I made some dinner for one!
I made myself a frittata in a little pan we have that’s perfect for one person to make eggs in.
First I sauteed some mushrooms and spinach, then I poured 1 egg + I egg white (whipped) over that. I let it set for a little while on medium heat then added some lite Mexican cheese from Trader Joe’s.
I like frittatas better then omelets because there is more surface area which means more bites!
I also had a soy dog on a piece of whole wheat bread on the side that I grilled on the George Foreman (hence why it’s so flat!)
And of course an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie for dessert! mmmm….
TOMOROW’S FRIDAY!!! YAY!
Mission find a foam roller will go into effect tomorrow at 5! Wish me luck!
Do you like rain storms?? I think it’s a good excuse to stay in and watch a movie…even though most times I don’t need an excuse 🙂
