I have busy days....lots of them....and this one has challenged them all. I have been going since 7:00 this morning. I know for some of you that is not early but for me it is. I really like to sleep until 8:30. I don't have to be at the office until 9am on regular business days so I have trained myself to be ready in 25 minutes for the day. Well once I started this running thing I adjusted and started waking up early 3 days a week. It could be 5am like it was last fall but 7 still sucks!!!!!
Aaannnnyway, I woke up to go run this morning. We had a crowd of three this morning instead of 2 which was nice. We ran a grand total of 4 miles and this was not my best run. Most of my soreness from the weekend is now gone, Praise the Lord, but I am still having some pain. My knee is holding up exceptionally well but my entire leg is swollen and my hip is killing me. I don't know why! It has hurt off and on for about 2 years now. I went to the doctor about it not that long ago and he said there was nothing wrong with it but it is hurting bad enough that I think I might have to make a follow up visit to see if something is going on. Basically my entire left leg is rejecting my body right now.
My food over the last two weeks has been horrible. I haven't been eating great, still no fast food (I gave that up for Lent) but I have been making poor decisions (Basically, I have been eating my feelings.) And I haven't been drinking my water like normal. Well today I really made a conscience effort to do better on my food and actually drink my water. It has helped. I didn't realize how much I have missed my water. I have already noticed the swelling in my knee go down a little bit...duh! I knew better than that.
I didn't go to Zumba this afternoon because of my hip. I just didn't think jumping and shaking would be the best idea on a hip that is already hurting. But I will be working out tonight. Two a Day!!!!! Its been a while.
I am excited to workout with my late night buddy tonight. She came a couple of times last week but we didn't really get a good workout. Mostly walked around the track. One night she ran and I sat on the bike in front of her and talked. I didn't do anything. Then Monday this week I cancelled so I could hopefully watch the National Championship game. I saw the end of what was a very un-anticlimactic game. But tonight we box again!!!!!
Other than the daily work that must be done in order to make a living I have had tons of errands to run and it just seems like I have been on the go all day long, and to top it all off I get to go to Wal-Mart today. I avoid Wal-Mart at all cost, especially from 8-5 but I am kinda ready to get my butt in bed and I know that is not happening any time soon.
I probably wont be on again today unless we have an incredibly crazy good or bad workout tonight. I hope for the crazy good.
