I still have not ran, I ran last friday and it felt alright, pretty decent. Ever since my hamstring has been tight and I’m afraid to run. I don’t want to make it any worst so I just don’t run…
This morning I was at the gym on the arc and I was like ‘wow my legs feel good’ so I went over to the treadmill, punched in a 9min pace to start and I felt the pull again. I don’t know to explain it but this kind of pain aches like I honestly know I could run thru it but I am worried that will just prolong this.
Instead I hopped back on my beloved arc trainer.
I know that when I do start running again (I’m hoping for saturday) I will have to start small. I’m going to go back to running for minutes rather than miles, and I’m going to start at a slower pace and build myself back up. I can’t expect myself to be just as strong as I was 3 weeks ago.
This is not a set back its a set up for something great. I’m not going to say I can’t or that just because I’m slower than I was I won’t ever be able to get back to where I was. I can and I will. I’m going to use this to make myself stronger and become a more well rounded athlete.
With my combination of strength in motion, running, biking and swimming I should be able to not only better myself, get to a weight and body I love and become a faster runner.
On another note…
Today I have what sounds like a ridiculous day, but in reality really isn’t that bad. I woke up at 630am, ate some oatmeal with bluebs and pnut buttah, went to the gym at 730 did 1 hour 10 minutes arc trainer, then 100 squats, 100 lunges, 100 sit ups, 100 push ups. And I plan on doing yoga tonight after my last final.
I had a final at 1015 (it was an essay final) after I turned in my paper my prof calls me over and says, “You know, you were one of 4 in the class to get an A...you didn’t have to take the final (now he has a huge ass grin) I just wanted you to do it anyways so I could read what you had to say (even bigger grin and starts laughing)” Ohhh cool man!! hahaha I mean, it really wasn’t a hard essay, but it’s pretty funny I didn’t NEED to take it.
I have another final at 2:45, then another at 5pm. SO it sounds like a wicked hard day of tests, but I’m pretty prepared for these so I’m not really worried….SADLY THOUGH I have to stay here til Friday because I have my last one Friday morning WAAAAH.
SOooooo right meoowww I’m sippin on some dunkin ice coffeeeee and watching my fav show…THE COSBY SHOW!!!!!!
Q- Are you as obsessed with coffee as I am??
Q2- How do you feel about multiple finals in one day, our rule here is you can switch it if you have more than 2 in one day, would you switch it or leave it up to your preference?
ONE LAST THING…. Holy crap I’m almost a senior…..
