Feeling Better

Ok, I don't really feel any different since my doctors appointment but I good results from the doc, all blood work good, we checked it all!  (No cancer, no diabetes, no cholesterol problem, no thyroid issues) We really did check it all.  And the x-rays of my hip came back good too, no stress fracture which was a big concern of mine.  Now it still hurts but the peace of mind of knowing that running is not making a stress fracture worse and I don't have cancer.  Those 2 things will make anyone feel better.

Now, lets talk about this weekend.  I know I got my burn in and I am happy that I took the time to workout because last week was not my best workout week.  I had plans to go to canoe the river but not until later in the day so I got up early, against my better judgement, and went to run with my local running people.  I now have two sets of running people...a girl could do worse.

I didn't know how far the run was going to be and we ended up doing 6 miles on Saturday before heading off to canoe the river.  The river was a few hours of rowing so my burn was on time....

I know I was pretty wiped out after the day because I slept right through dinner.  I went home and took a late nap and woke up at 8:15pm.  You would think I would have been up all night but amazingly enough I went back to sleep at 11pm and was out like a light.

Sunday was the same as always, REST Day and I did get in rest.

Then today was back to the grind.  I was up early and off to the gym for PUMP.  I was trying to keep my weights up but I was missing one set of weights so I did the best I could.  It was so hard today.  After class I ran off to do a short circuit with weights and cardio and then finished off with a 20 minute or so jog.  I kept a pretty good pace on the treadmill and was pleased with my run.  Even thought it still hurts when I run I at least know I'm not doing damage so I feel like I can go faster and harder.  I went so hard that I had to shuck some of my clothes because I was burning up!   I finished up my run in a tank top and that doesn't happen much, really only when I get really hot!

I finished up my morning with a steam and shower and then headed off to work early.  I just anticipated a busy day and it did not disappoint.  I was busy most of the day which makes the day just scoot by and that was fine by me.

After work I had hopes of making it to the gym again but I knew that I just might not get there with all the things I needed to do.  I headed off to pick up a few things after work, then had to clean the office and clean my house and cook my food for the next couple of days and its after 9pm and I didn't get in another workout.  But in all fairness I have not stopped moving since 6 so I think I have burned more than I would have if I had just sat on the couch.

Now, I'm getting ready for tomorrow in hopes of another nice workout day!
