Friday Favs – aka – my Friday Ramblings
It’s Friday and time for another addition of Friday Favorites! Today will be short because I have been taking it easy and icing my knee all week. Hopefully, this little break with help with some needed healing after last Saturday’s Half Marathon.
1. Spring! – It’s finally here! I don’t know about you, but I already started looking through my summer clothes and taking out sandals. Then I remembered it’s still 40 degrees and I’m getting a little ahead of myself. Any who, I see that light (literally) at the end of the tunnel and I want to jump up and down with joy because spring is here!
2.) MCM – I got into the Marine Corps Marathon and Hubby did too! YAY! Marathons for everybody! Someone remind me next October about how excited I am right now!
3.) Foam Roller – The foam roller and ice packs have become my new bff’s this week. Post race this is my routine, it’s like we get back together then break up again once I feel human again. On top of that I found some great strengthening exercises from Massachusetts General and the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons. The exercises remind me of what I was doing in physical therapy. Hopefully, these work for my knee and I become the Incredible Hulk without the green side effects.
What have you been up to this week? Any fun plans this weekend? Have you been all over the race lotteries too (NYC next week, MCM last week, and Chicago opened this week)? Do you foam roll too?
I too have been swapping out the spring/summer clothes with my sweaters, but should know better as it’s -10C/14F here today and colder at night. I love my foam roller and use it nearly every night. My cats used it as a scratching post once so it has some character.
Super duper congrats on getting into the MCM!!! Reminders are set for October to commence continued girly screaming.
Thanks! 😄 Good call with the reminders. Lol
