I have just been bumming around all day and honestly, it’s been great. This is the first weekend in two weeks where I haven’t had to wake up at the butt crack of dawn for a race. Of course, I still managed to wake up very early but it was nice to not have to. Jason and I decided to walk up to the Morningside Farmer’s Market with Murphy. It’s about 1.25 miles each way. I took my camera.
I live near a drive through liquor store. Yes, really. No, I’ve never used the drive through part but sometimes taxis drive through with Emory kids inside. I’m assuming they’re college kids (and we live right near Emory), I don’t think I’d ever have a taxi take me to a drive through liquor store after age 22! I have no idea why it’s called Pitch & Putt. It’s actually way less shady than it looks.
Even though it was 45 degrees out, there were signs of spring. Finally.
Murphy enjoyed sniffing every single patch of grass on the way to the market. He’s saying, “Stop trying to take my picture. Can’t you see I’m investigating smells? Geez.”
Murphy says things like that a lot. Although Jason and I have to talk for him. We really do talk for him all the time. We got to our destination and I was unimpressed.
Every time I go to this market, I am not impressed with it. There were only like 6 tents and one sold vegetables and the rest sold things like soap and nuts. So we left. On the way home, we ran into this guy, who parks his truck in the same spot every Saturday and Sunday morning and sells produce. I’ve never bought anything from him. I always say that I am going to next time.
Pancakes were on the menu for breakfast. I used this Quaker Oatmeal pancake mix, vanilla almond milk, chopped up raspberries and a few chocolate chips. I wanted to sneak some chia seeds in there, but decided against it. I didn’t tell Jason that I used almond milk until he finished eating. Ha.
I decided to try out one of the P90X cardio dvds tonight as my exercise for the day. I did the KempoX which is kickboxing. Back when I lived in Maryland, I used to do a lot of kickboxing classes at the gym and really enjoyed them. I don’t know why I stopped; my current gym offers them. Although my current gym’s classes suck. I liked this DVD. There was one sequence of 4 moves that I could just not figure out so I ran in place while they did that. I am not what you’d call coordinated.
The DVD was good and the hour passed quickly. I think the strength ones are going to be MUCH harder for me. I do need some help with recovery fuel. Normally, I sort of ignore the need to refuel and only eat if I’m hungry but I think I should eat no matter what. The question is, what do I eat? What do you eat as a recovery food?
