On Saturday I went for my first run (almost) post sickness. The verdict? Eh.
The run itself was great. I managed to con my friend Adam into an 8 mile run at an easy, conversational pace. I knew it would be tough to peel myself off the couch and recruited Adam so I couldn’t back out. Everybody already knows this, but running with friends definitely makes the job easier. It felt great to get back out there!
The only kind of disappointing part of the run came after the run. The next day. In my calves. Don’t get me wrong. I’m cool with sore muscles. But given the the distance and the pace, I wouldn’t have predicted sore. Long story short – I’m still kind of freaking out about the Oakland Half Marathon.
But enough about that. We followed the run up with a trip to Lululemon. Thank God for their yoga shorts because (OH MY GOD) the employees were obnoxious! My favorite part was when the male salesman told me about “his favorite” sports bra.
Yoga shorts were followed by cupcakes, and cupcakes were followed by a little Berkeley Bowl. I had never been before, and it was AMAZING! I’ve never seen so much produce in my life!
Cream cheese frosting and Brussels sprouts. Can you imagine a better way to refuel after a run?
