Oh hi! There hasn’t been much going on over here, hence the lack of posting.
Since I had my long run Sunday rather than Saturday, both Monday and Tuesday were fairly easy days in the workout department. I did some easy cross training Monday and Tuesday was an easy 3 mile run with some core work.
I am at that point in my training where I am over a schedule. I want to just be able to run by how I feel. Yesterday, I felt good and would have like to gotten in some more miles but that’s not what the schedule called for. I am also seriously missing CrossFit. Yes, I miss the workouts but now it is effecting my brain! I felt fit when I was lifting heavy weights and without that lifting I am starting to feel….fat. I know I am not but the lack of lifting is messing with my brain. I am concerned I will start to gain weight and that’s no good for my running! I can’t help that I like to eat!
Anyway…..With my decent amount of down time I have been trying to learn to like my foam roller. HA! good luck with that one. Yesterday I made sure to stretch and foam roll for at least 2o minutes. I did have some company
Are they not the cutest? Weird thing happened though. While I was rolling my hamstring, it bothered my quad. what?! yea, rolling my hamstring made my quad twinge with pain. Not sure what that was about!
Since I am really new to foam rolling I am still trying to convince myself that the excruciating pain is normal. I looked up a few more tips on foam rolling and found this infographic!
Tonight I have some biking and running on the agenda! Probably a bit more corework too!
I need some excitement in my life….tell me something good!
