My running has been cut down since I hurt my back...
& its driving me crazy!!!!
I have to do something... I feel like a lazy bump on a log lately
One thing I know I need to do is more cross training anyways.
My back may not be hurting now if I cross trained more.
So I've been looking into more yoga & pilates... its good for your back anyways so a win-win situation.
I got a new Pilates video from Amazon .... (Is Amazon the best invention in the world? I'd be lost without Amazon)
its good... 50 minutes of putting myself in positions I never thought I could get in.... & actually DIDNT get in.
That was sorta me yesterday
Finding out that my core? yeah, not too strong.
My flexibility? About the stretchiness of a wood plank
My strength? With a bum bicep tendon in one arm, I've the strength of a 2 yr old
I was depressed as all get out by the end of this... literally was sitting on my exercise mat thinking how out of shape I am in.
& I've done 5 half marathons...
How am I so out of shape?
But I did something in the wise words of the late Aaliyah... I dust myself off & I'm going to try again
I'm going to focus on my strength & flexibility right now... maybe more then running. I'd like to incorporate it all together. After all, I've already registered for my 6th half marathon.
Who knows - this may be me in a few months... or a year... or two...
& by this.. I mean doing this with a smile! :)
This is my theme song today...
