How is everybody feeling today?
I actually feel relatively well even though when I hopped on the scale this morning I was up FIVE MUTHER FAAAAKING POUNDS.
How does that happen?
Surely to God it malfunctioned, or it's water, or just straight muscle.
This is why after this upcoming weekend when I weigh in for the Thread Eleven Challenge I am breaking up with that gosh forsaken scale.
I have to weigh in every Friday for another challenge I am in but that is it.
I will not weigh myself every day like I do now.
I just can't.
I am much better at not letting it ruin a perfectly wonderful day but it is still hard not to think about it.
Not to let it suck the wind out of my sails just a tad.
I have come so far how dare I let a number define me.
I just ran 4.55 miles on Sunday surely to goodness that has to stand for something.
The way my clothes fit.
Just generally how I feel.
I am happy and that is what should matter.
I am just trucking right along.
I have decided to partake in the Hudepohl Run this year.
I have always heard it's a blast plus you get free beer at the end!
There is a 14k and a 7k and honestly I still haven't decided which one I am doing yet.
Part of me really wants to go balls to the wall and part of me that just kinda wants to take it easy.
However I am planning on trying to stick to the following schedule to see if there is anyway I can do the 14k at all.
|Monday-Sunday||Stretch & strengthen||3 m run||45 min cross||3 m run + strength||Rest||4 m run||50 min cross|
|Monday-Sunday||Stretch & strengthen||5 m run||45 min cross||3 m run + strength||Rest||7 m run||60 min cross|
|Monday-Sunday||Stretch & strengthen||5 m run||45 min cross||3 m run + strength||Rest||8 m run||60 min cross|
|Monday-Sunday||Stretch & strengthen||3 m run||30 min cross||2 m run + strength||2 m run or rest|| Hudepohl14K |
For my fellow runners do you think it's impossible for me to be ready for the 14k in four weeks?
Yesterday I did some inclined walking on the treadmill at lunch because it felt so good to stretch my muscles out that way.
Then last night I let JM kick my ass.
I figured that counts as stretch and strengthen right?
Today on the agenda I have a three mile run planned along with another session of Jillian.
Some people are saying that I am doing too much but honestly I know my body and I feel better than I ever have.
If I feel hurt I will slow down but right now I feel strong and healthy.
I really need to keep my eating in check though.
All this running really has me feeling like I have the appetite of a linebacker a lot of the time so I just have to remember to eat healthier options.
HAPPY TUESDAY FRIENDS MAKE IT HEALTHY AND HAPPY =)
