What can I say... This month has been a hard one for me and my training. Started the month tired and exhausted, then got sick and have had two weeks off of no workouts. Not good but my asthma has been effected badly. My last post basically explains how I've been feeling with this cold. My body feels lazy and fat again and frankly I miss my workouts as hard as they are I do truly miss them. I miss that strong getting sweaty feeling and being able to push farther then the training session before. I miss the little accomplishments and small victories. One of my non workout victories is finally having two toes have their nails grow back enough to finally have a pedicure. I lost the nails after my half marathon and have been trying to save them from my summer races.
I am still frustrated and my cold has basically gone away but my lungs are still not a 100%. The weather has changed from bone chilling cold to warmer snow melting chinook spring like weather. That usually means for me the perfect weather to get outside and run. Needless to say I am itching to get back to running outside and my triathlon workouts.
But like the weather it changes and it's back to a little snow and cold and I am going to attempt to run tomorrow night. Decided to do it on my treadmill at home in a controlled environment away from all the elements that can hurt my lungs. Will start out slow and hoping to increase my speed as I go and see how long I end up lasting. I have a feeling it will go well or not so good but regardless I am going to try to get back on this training schedule. I have a 10km snowshoe race in the mountains on March 8th so I need to get my cardio back up but also know if I end up walking it that it's still better then not doing it.
Wish me luck!
Until next time....
I am a single mom with one son that has been living with asthma since I was 2yrs old. I also almost died three times due to severe asthma attacks! I don't let my asthma stop me from accomplishing new goals and living life to the fullest.
