So as you can tell I did some changes... I liked the other one but it just wasn't me. This is more me. I changed my pages and layouts to make things easier to read and see and added new info which I hope you find useful.
Well this week was slow again in the running department.. not happy about it but it happened and next week need to try harder. That half marathon is coming quicker then I was realizing. Reason (but not an excuse) was I started a new weight lifting program and it's all arms and some new leg stuff. Lets just say after Monday's workout I could hardly walk Tuesday, Wednesdays workout was great and all arms and Thursday I made it out for a 3km cross country run (felt fantastic) and then Friday was arms and squats so was hurting yesterday in the arm department. Today moving much better and looking forward to starting it all over again tomorrow after work. This should go better now that I know what the workouts are and will try to get in a short run Tuesday for active recovery.
I tried an elliptical this week for the first time and wow I really like it... so much better then running on the treadmill. Even my lack of coordination was OK being on it and I didn't hurt myself once. This week wasn't completely injury free... doing power cleans I whacked myself on the collar bone and my hip, my skull crushers I always hit my forehead at least once ( you know to make sure it's still there) and 2 bruises on my knees thanks to my puppy making me slip on our wood sidewalk.
This week the plan is to run Tuesday and Thursday afternoon and a long run on Sunday. now I hope the weather cooperates as I am getting tired of running in the wind and today it snowed. I thought spring was to show up but she must be running behind so winter thought about filling in for her for a little while longer yet. But frankly I am tired of these up and down days... gorgeous and warm one day and then snow the next very frustrating for those that need to be outside training.
So wish me luck... I'm gonna need it!
Until next time....
