I had to take a little running break for a while because my knees were starting to cramp up and tighten while working out. I did stick to swimming laps and strength training to make up for it. I’ve been fitting in a lot of golf, basketball, yoga and dog walks to also get some more exercise. I decided to try and run today. I did surprisingly well. I ran 3.5 miles without feeling too bad on the knee. I made sure to ice it after and then wrap it. I also ran VERY SLOW miles. The miles were around 10-12 minutes.
It was so hot out when I went for my run. I should have done it earlier in the morning, but that’s my time to drink coffee and do my emails. I may start pushing my runs back until later in the evening; at least I got a tan. When I got back, I blended up 1/2 cup ice, half banana, 1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup frozen strawberries, 1 packet of stevia, and one pack of white chia seeds to cool down.
This is such a quick and refreshing drink for a post workout.
What is your favorite way to cool off after a workout?
