Sweet 16! NYRR Long Training Run #2

I set my alarm for 5:45 this morning and hit snooze.. Finally I dragged myself out of bed right before 6:00. I made a myself a peanut butter toast (my typical breakfast before any long run) and shortly headed up to E102nd where the training run starts. The weather today was quite humid compared to Long Training Run #1, but I knew I needed to hit sweet 16 (that was the distance I ran last year this time). After exhausting my body for 2 hours and 17 minutes, I got 16 miles down! =D It's been 3 1/2 months since I returned to running after my injury and there's been no signs of any injury recurrence so far! (knock on wood)

There are a few new things I started this summer including a Fitness Instagram account and NYRR running classes for 10 weeks! Follow me @ Littlerunnerr  You can find vegetarian/vegan recipes, healthy desserts and other good stuff on my account =) More to come on the running class!

8/17 update (post 16 miles): my body feels normal today surprisingly. I think yoga may have been a great contributor to my training routine! I have been going to a yoga vinyasa class at YogaToThePeople in East Village once a week. I think it's very beneficial to anyone whether you are an athlete or not! So I attended a yoga vinyasa class tonight and I definitely felt the tightness in my adductors and my lower back mostly due to long distance running. Not only did the class stretch out my whole body, it also relaxed my mind after work on a Monday haha
