Happy Tuesday everyone and everybody knows (or should know) that Tuesdays are Lost days! Can’t wait for tonight!
I posted my weekly weigh in results a little early this week (a little late getting around to posting) and was really excited with the results. Had another solid workout with my trainer yesterday. We started with an 8 minute spinning circuit followed by leg work (squats and kettlebell lunges), upper body (kettlebell rows and LOTS of push-ups) and abs (medicine ball crunches and the usual planks). All that along with an evening of sparring at karate and you can probably understand why I slept pretty well last night.
Today, I’m going for a little run. I’m still trying to decide if I want to do a shorter run at a faster pace or a longer run at a slower pace. My last few runs have been longer runs at my distance running pace but it seems like today might good be a good opportunity to get a little speed running in.
I’m also contemplating whether or not to wear the IT Band brace. Things have been feeling really good for the past week and I really would prefer to run without it. When I have the brace on, I feel like I pay more attention to my knee and the brace than my running form or pace. My gut’s telling me to go without it. I did all my flexibility work yesterday as normal so everything should be stretched and loose. I just hate the thought of jinxing a good thing though.
Sorry folks but I’m going to cut this one a little short today. The thoughts just aren’t flowing quite as freely as they usually do. I’ll take that as a sign that I should get to the gym and work out so that I can get the blood flowing again.
Have a great day!
