So I was feeling a bit stressed out, and by "a bit" I mean "my poor head was about to explode". This grown-up life thing sorta sucks, at times. Some of it I just don't want to talk about in a public forum, yet, but maybe I will, someday...
Anyway, in the category of "training log"!
I went out for a run yesterday. It ended up being much hillier than I'd anticipated! I did over 1000 feet of climbing in three miles. Yike! So it was a bit ugly and I felt blobby and jiggly and sad and miserable until about halfway through when I got a second wind, and felt fast and fleet for about 20 yards, and then the agony that is running kicked in. The first mile was actually pretty good- 8 minutes something, despite my monkey brain and self esteem issues slowing me down.
On the bright side, the scale has returned to showing me losses once more, so I am happy about that.
The run was a bit gruesome but sometimes we just have to do it!
For tonight I plan to finish cleaning the kitchen and then get a little bit of Barre3 in, so I can earn back some activity points. I think I'm SUPPOSED to be overeating my daily point allowance (and dipping into activity or weekly points), but I still feel weird when I do. I'll ask my leader about that on Saturday!
On the bright side, I have plans for a walk and/or climb tomorrow with a friend of ours. I got her hooked on rock climbing a few weeks back, and now I'm finding I miss the walls a bit too. It's such an intellectual as well as a physical workout. Very good for monkeybrains.
Plans for this weekend include a big bike ride, some Outside Time Of Some Sort on Friday, and scheduling some swim time with another friend. Plus, I'm organizing TWO rides for the parish this summer. And I hope to find a Saturday century between now and July so I can get my BMC his first real century!
