Yesterday’s workout

29 Jul

Because you care.

I decided to give the foot another day off. Plus, I’m scared I will go crazy if I run on it and it acts ugly so I’m delaying expected disappointment. Such a great attitude I have, I know.

Anyway, the gym was good for me as it always is. Mind clearing and blood pumping and stress reducing. Good stuff!

dud of a run

27 Jul

thumbs downSo, we entered Pathetic Town on the run today. It didn’t start off well, nor did it end well either. I had downloaded my intervals onto the Garmin, got dressed, grabbed my gear, got to the greenway and realized that I’d forgotten….the Garmin. No biggie, I have Runkeeper on my phone. Yay for backup plans.

I felt sluggish and not into it at all and finally gave up on using the stopwatch to track the intervals. I decided to just get 3-4 miles in and call it a day. Then as I was just finding a semi groove, my ankle/foot went pop and I couldn’t go anymore. Not even two miles and I’m hobbling to the car. I moved it around and popped it a few times and it felt better but I didn’t want to continue.

Enter Angry Runner. Seriously livid at my stupid body for betraying me again. Desperately hoping that this was just a fluke thing. I almost went home but really needed some alone time, so to the gym I went. Got a decent work out there fueled by frustration. Pooped out on the bike ride and left.

going nowhere but sweating like I am

2 Jan

Just an update…So, I DID make it to the gym and snagged the last available bike. I felt like a complete dork because that’s not usually my exercise machine of choice but I think I might have liked it. I definitely felt the burn and worked up a nasty sweat. Rode a smidge over 10 miles and it felt great! So here’s to spinning my wheels. And really bad jokes.

Random kid pic: I’m not sure what kiddo is doing here but it made me laugh.
