Saturday (kinda) Long Run, Soccer and Work

I took yesterday off from exercise, I was going to do a FIRM step aerobics DVD but my right quad is bothering me (I think I will really break down and call a Dr Monday, maybe...) I did dance with the girls last night and let me tell you 6 songs on Just Dance is a bit of a workout!
My Saturday started dark and early, hubs had a fishing tournament so we were up at 3:30 to get him out the door. After he left I couldn't fall asleep and I finally decided  to get up and run at 4:20. My Galloway half marathon plan called for a 3 mile long run today. I took it slow since my quad was really acting up and ended up doing it in 36 minutes and feeling good after. The girls all had soccer games today and I coached the two teams we are the coaches for alone since hubs was fishing. The girls did great!! It's been a gorgeous day out today, only 85 degrees and breezy! No scores since it is a non-competitive league, but so much fun was had! And we only had healthy snacks (at least in our coolers) today - I brought (all fruit) fruit roll-up, almonds and Clif Kids ZBars for the girls and a Larabar for me. And my mom, Yaya, brought apples, carrots and sugar snap peas (my all time favorite snacking veggie!!).
Now I'm at work, blogging along on my lunch break. I'm pretty tired and ready to go home and go to bed!! I think I may get up and do Rodney Yee's Power Yoga tomorrow to try to stretch this leg out! Do any of you have suggestions on how to get my quad kink out?


  1. wow! way to get up early and get your run out of the way! I usually stick with a foam roller for my you have one of those? they are seriously amazing!

  2. I don't have one of those Julia, I'll have to look into getting one. Thanks!

  3. My answer to quad kinks and pretty much everything is 8 hours sleep, Bikram Yoga and a great massage.....

    Hope you feel better!

    I dig that you are a park ranger. That is my DREAM job. For real.

    Get Up & Go
