Weekly Meals and Workouts 14

Happy Sunday everyone. How was your day today?

My day was awesome, thank you very much. I watched my uncle run his first half marathon today. He did a great job! He beat his expected time, which was awesome. He inspired me to run my first half marathon back in October. He’s a runner and he got me to run in a race!

Another thing I want to mention is that I registered for a 10 mile run, which is  April 27th of this month. I’m so excited! The thing is that my knees and calves have been feeling it. My calves have been really tight to the point that it’s hurting and my knees and my quads are getting tight as well. I’ve been stretching and foam rolling. I also drink water on my runs. Maybe I’ll have to apply heat and pressure to it and incorporate more potassium in my diet and less sodium. I’ll see how that turns out!

Anyway, since I am posting this late, I’ll make this quick. I won’t use the template to show you guys but I will still tell you guys the plan. Here is a template for you guys to use. I’ll update it eventually!

  1. Calf tightness is something I most certainly struggle with!!! Sometimes I feel like my calves are going to explode, it’s so weird and a little uncomfortable- but hey, that just means we have big calf muscles too, RIGHT???? lol

    • Yea. Mine have definitely developed after I ran my first half marthon. I guess stretching is the best thing I can do right now. I just hope it doesn’t affect my 10 mile run later in the month.
