It’s FRIIIIIDAY. Wahoo! Not like it matters for me, because I’m on break.. But whatever. The knowledge that it is in fact almost officially the weekend still gives me a little jumpstart to happiness for the day.
What does Friday mean? Friday means it’s time to talk about my FAAAAAAVES. Five of them, to be precise. Some days, coming up with five is an ambitious goal.. Some days, it’s wayyyy too little. It’s one of those days.
Probably because I’ve skipped Friday Faves twice in a row. Oh well. ONTO THEM!
1. Proper recovery.
Okay, so as a runner with a busy schedule at school, I often ignore recovery after runs as a priority. BAD. But, at home? I’m totally into recovery. The second I get home from a run, there is stretching, then slipping on my brand new compression sleeves.. And uggs.
Then? A giant bowl of oatmeal is made.
Afterwards, it’s chillaxin’ on the couch
all day.. I’m really lazy when I’m not running.
He’s my new boyfriend. A Garmin Forerunner 450CX. I have a serious problem.
So.. Yesterday, I wanted cupcakes. So.. Yesterday, I made cupcakes. So.. Yesterday, I ate cupcakes. Recipe soon!
4. Celestial Seasonings holiday tea.
Now that it’s after Christmas, all of the delicious holiday tea is on sale. My favourite is Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride or Nutcracker Sweet. My mom got two boxes for 3 bucks the other day! What a steal.
5. Pea snacks.
Okay, so I’m obsessed with wisabi peas. But, my mom’s friend introduced me to these Japanese pea snacks.. They’re delicious. I want them. I crave them. I need them. They’re crunchy, salty, and slightly peppery.. TO DIE FOR.
Now, I’m contemplating mixing them and wasabi peas for ultimate perfection.
What are you loving this week? What’s your favourite way to recover after a workout?
Tomorrow, I’ll be going a bit serious on y’all. You’ve been warned.
