Training: June 9, 60 minute group ride (spin)
June 10, 3 miles (tempo)
Well it's been a slow week on the training front. I woke up with an extremely stiff neck/shoulder on Monday which made it really uncomfortable to run, so I didn't. Then, on Tuesday I woke up with the existing stiff neck and a very sore hamstring, even though I had a rest day the previous day.
I blame these two ailments on two things:
1. I need a new pillow, the one I have now is just terrible.
2. I decided it was time to take the 'injury prone' part of 'injury prone runner' out of my subtitle for the blog. I have been injury free since last May (pulled hamstring which wasn't all that serious) and thought it was time to just be a 'runner'. I did this on Sunday... coincidence? :)
So, I took two rest days and eased back into it with a group ride which stretched out both my neck and hamstring nicely.
Now, onto FOOD.
Last month I finally picked up my very own copy of 'The Joy of Cooking', it was a good day. I've spent some quality time browsing the many recipes but have yet to try anything out. So, I've decided for the few weeks left of June I'll pick one recipe randomly a week and try it out! No, I haven't seen 'Julie and Julia' (little known secret, my first name is actually Julia; not Alanna, but I've been called Alanna since birth) yet but maybe I should check it out for inspirations sake, and the fact that I adore Meryl Streep!
