When you have a party and get a bunch of food from Costco, the next few night’s dinners are probably going to consist of leftovers. At least in my case, they were.
Yummy tasting plate.
Clockwise we have bean dip, carrots, pita chips, ranch dip, tabbouleh and hummus. I really liked the ranch dip. It’s premade from Costco but made with Greek Yogurt instead of sour cream.
I went to the gym tonight with the intention of running 4 miles. I got on the treadmill and as soon as I started running, I felt a pain in butt and back of my upper thigh. I tried to keep going, but it hurt. It wasn’t a sharp pain, more like a dull ache, but pretty achy. I got off the treadmill and tried to do the elliptical instead and while it didn’t hurt as much, it still hurt. It doesn’t hurt at all if I don’t put weight on that leg though. What’s wrong with me? Muscle strain? I asked a friend of mine who was at the gym and is prone to injury. She said it sounded like I strained either my glute or my hamstring. I hope it feel better tomorrow. I am running a 10K on Saturday morning.
Has this particular injury, if it is an injury, happened to anyone? I know that I’m really lucky, but I’ve never really had a running injury before. Although, I did do some lower body heavy lifting yesterday and I’m wondering if it’s related more to that than to running.
Off to watch Season 4 of Dexter, although Facebook totally ruined it for me. I guess I have Dexter as a tv show that I like and they send out status updates. Well, the particular status update from yesterday gave away the big shocker at the end of this season. I still don’t know exactly how it happens, so it’s still exciting.
