Last night before going out for a run, I bought some ankle support bandages. As you might know, I twisted my foot in a small scooter accident a few weeks ago. It’s doing better, but I ice it down daily and keep a bandage on it at most times.
Running doesn’t hurt, but sometimes my foot will bend in a way that will hurt a little bit. Anyways, I’ve had worse injuries.
Yesterday, I had two eggs with a little bit of bacon and cheese for breakfast. For lunch I had 1L of fresh OJ. Since I had eaten something at around 10AM, I wasn’t hungry. I’ve also been watching the portions that I eat, to make sure that I don’t over eat. For late lunch at 4PM, I had a G-Pai lemon chicken pita with hummus from Sababa‘s. Their fresh mint lime sodas are incredible. I recommend the place.
After my run, I ate a mango, two eggs with ham and onions, as well as some bean sprouts and blue cheese. Three eggs is too much.
The run. I didn’t feel it at all, but I couldn’t just not run. I walked the dog after I fed the cat and had relaxed a bit. There were three runners who were a lot faster than me. Actually only two that were really fast. I was impressed. I still have trouble with my initial breathing. I feel like I’m breathing shallow. I’ll take my asthma pump along tonight to make sure that it’s not asthma. It could also be the heat, but I think that I’m used to the heat.
I didn’t think that I’d be able to run the full 5.2 km, but I just pushed through and got it over with. It was nicely exhausting. I slept well yesterday.
