I know its been a few days since I last posted but I have a good reason. I had to step back for a moment and get my head on straight. Basically I was a little bit down in the dumps because my runs were sucking this week and it was really frustrating. After Wednesday's run I didn't have anything nice to say at all. On Thursday I did that core class again. You remember the one that I called hell last week. Well, it didn't get easier yet, I'm pretty sure this week was harder than last week.
This week we stayed in that wonderful plank position for about 45 minutes with lots of walking on our hands up and down stairs....Oh! holy crap it was hard. I poured sweat during this class like never before....I actually had to move over from the spot that I was in because I was dripping sweat all over the floor. I was so sore the next day and still today, but its amazing that I am sore in totally new places this week. I just know this class is good for me.
Then Friday was time to run again. I was still a little nervous about going out to run. I really needed to end this week with a good one. Well I started on the stairs and was able to get in all 8 trips with no pain....the first time in 3 weeks. WOOO HOOOO! Then I said 2 mile run. I know I needed to run about 6-7 on Friday but it was more important for my ego/well-being to just get in a good one, as short as it may have been. And it was, a very very good run. Friday night there was no workout, just work, and then this morning, no workout again, just work. I may try to go out tomorrow and get a few miles in but not stressing out about it.
I hate that I missed Boot Camp this week, but I really have a love/hate relationship with this workout. Basically, I hate the hurt, but I love the results.
And I will give you an update on the project coming up. I am hoping to have all my research done this week and let you know what it is....still totally top secret at this point. I am going on vacation and hopefully will be able to start after vacation. I know there are those really strong people that can diet on vacation....well I am not one of them and I am going to enjoy every second of my vacation, food and all. I will however be doing my running on vacation. Can you imagine anything better than running on flat sand instead of the Tennessee hills!?!?!?!? Maybe a change of scenery will do me good.
Thanks guys for sticking in with me and coming back even though I didn't post for a few days. I really am feeling much better now and think I can have a more positive outlook on my running again. I talked to some running friends and they made me feel much better about the whole bad week situation.
