That's the best way I can describe my first week of half marathon #8 training.
OK - I'll do it better
I dont know what's going on with me. I'm just not feeling like myself lately. I got the workouts done. & they were tough.
I can tell I haven't worked out in awhile. At least when it came to the strength training. My muscles were shaking like a new born deer trying to stand up on shaky legs.
My running was surprisingly OK. Even though my knees already ache & hurt & are popping on day one. Hello 45 year old body.
I just dont have any 'ump' in me right now.
I'm doing the workouts but if I had a choice, I'd go home & get in bed & pull the blankets over my head.
I'm forcing myself to do this right now.
|Basically how I've felt all of 2017|
Not sure if its the weather. Not sure if its anxiety or depression settling back on me. Maybe its just overthinking things. Not sure what's going on. I just know I'm waiting anxiously to feel like myself again really soon - body & mind.
Anyways - I got week 1 done. Accomplishment in any form works for me right now.
Monday - Run 3 minutes / Walk 2 - 7 Rounds
Tuesday - Chisel Endurance
Wednesday - Run 3 minutes / Walk 2 - 7 Rounds
Thursday - Chisel Cardio
Friday - REST DAY
Saturday - 3 miles
Sunday - YOGA
To get off this gloomy bus, let's focus on the fact I finally did some yoga! YAHOOO!!!!
I felt really good doing it too.
Now, if I can make it a habit on Sundays, I'll be in business.
As for Nutrition I got in one vegan meal for the week
... & totally blew it one night. I, again, just didn't feel like myself & threw all cares to the wind & said Screw it, give me anything that has sugar in it. I ended up eating all the leftover candy in the house. Balance. I'll call that balance.
Fingers crossed week 2 has me pepping up some.
Always something.... & the sun HAS to come again, right? Spring is around the corner too... counting on it.
At least all the holiday chocolate is gone!
Linking up with Nadine for getting back on track
