I can’t explain how much fun I’m having with this blog! I can already tell that it will help me make sure I stick to my workouts 🙂 I was up and at the gym at 6:30 this morning for a strength workout, where I learned all about how to use my new must have: the foam roller! They are all the rage on a bunch of the blogs I’ve been reading but this is the first time I tried it for myself.
Whoever invented pinterest was a genius because it helped me find the link to the wonderful runnersworld.com videos to tell me all about my new daily ritual. How did I go through the number of physical therapy sessions I went through without anyone mentioning this wonderful piece of foam to me? It is like an instant deep tissue massage that finds all of the knots like magic.
After work today I had a meeting for a volunteer organization I’m part of and I won a prize for the most service hours for this month! I love going to all the activities they have and this group makes such an impact it’s crazy. For my prize I got a $25 gift card to The Fresh Market and I can’t wait to use it! I’ve never been there before but I heard it’s a really nice supermarket and since there are no Trader Joe’s where I live I hope this is similar 🙂
Do any of you use a foam roller?
Anyone the next Tiger Woods in mini-golf?
What is your favorite place to buy groceries?
P.S. The 10K I am doing will be the first race I’ve actually run in and also the first time I’ve run outside instead of a treadmill in YEARS. Is it normal that I have spent the past two weeks trying to finalize exactly what I’m going to wear?? Or am I weird. K thanks 🙂
