I’ve taken two rest days in a row, and it feels really good! After my run on Sunday, I was wiped and my legs were tired. I knew my rest day on Monday would be a nice break, but I decided I needed another good day of rest.
So this morning, I was up at 7 and lounged around for a bit before making breakfast:
I have an exam in two days, and I’m a little worried about it! We reviewed in class today and it helped, and I also stopped by office hours, but there were so many people there (my professor teaches three chemistry classes over the summer!) that I didn’t stay long.
After office hours, I headed home to make lunch:
I made veggie burgers on Sunday night and froze three of them to use as easy meals. I used this Oh She Glows recipe, which I will say is a bit complicated (there are a lot of components), but if you make enough to freeze, it’s totally worth it!
After lunch, I somehow convinced myself to get back to campus for some more studying. I did a practice test and actually did pretty well! Then I came home and took a short nap before a 30-minute yoga session.
Today I did “Yoga for Athletes”, which I selected solely because it included pigeon pose, which is my favorite stretch! It stretches the piriformis muscle, which gets tons of use but very little reward…I do pigeon pose every day when I stretch.
This yoga practice was really great! It hit all of my sore muscles. In fact, I probably could’ve done it twice! Definitely a good thing for a rest day.
Dinner tonight was coconut-curry baked tofu, another super-simple recipe.
