My magic mile

Wednesday, March 17, 2010

I have had a little fatigue this week Daylight Savings time, work stress, and of course my workout schedule, and probably some nutrition mixed in. So today instead of doing my longer run I opted to do a short workout and just jog a mile nice and easy and I do mean easy like turtle slow no strain or struggle barely breathing heavy just an active recovery day. Goal achieved! But a big shock when I looked at my time on my watch (I couldn't resist timing just in case I decided I felt good and wanted to go farther) I had actually ran slow or so I thought and I managed to run faster than I have in several years and what was great is I knew I could have gone faster!

    Congratulations on your run. I am amazed at how long I can run (slow jog) when I go slow. And I'm hoping I will get faster with time. Way to go!

Stress Management

Tuesday, March 16, 2010

I have decided the person that bothers me is not worth my effort in negative energy and I even made an effort to get along with this person tonight. I am really focusing in on my healthy eating again now that I have given up the stress of this person. I am also super focused on my training and how it makes me feel when I run the weight of the world is gone when I do Insanity I feel strong and fit, when I eat healthy I feel like I am invincible. If I focus on all of this, all of the other stuff in the world seems to disappear. I can have true happiness if I focus on myself and what my goals mean to me. The person that was affecting my life is my ex but I realized today that he means nothing and all the hurtful things that he did are his problem not mine, they are his issue and a result of his issues. He is not worth the energy that I was spending on anger and irritation and the apology that I was hoping for will never come because he is selfish, immature, and a negative person who desires to bring people down to his level of self esteem. So tonight for the first time in months I really truly am at peace and feel nothing when it comes to him, not love, hate, anger, irritation, happiness or sadness he is nothing and toward him I feel nothing.

I have been there before...feeling the same way you are feeling. I was with my ex since I was 15 and we divorced when I was 29 and up until last year I left whatever she said effect me. I felt less of a person and I'm not sure how much it effected me but starting this year I decided to put that behind me and just focus on myself with working out and eating as healthy as possible. We cant be perfect each day but fine tune what we are doing to make the next day better. I think your in the right frame of mind of this is your year:):) Way to go!!!

    Proud of you!

He's your ex because he's the way he is. Can't remember if you have kids, I don't think so, and if not, then there is NO reason to have anymore contact with him ever! I know how you feel, I went through a divorce myself and my ex is STILL a loser!

Core Cardio and Recovery Insanity Recovery week

Monday, March 15, 2010

The name is a bit deceptive because I was still sweating pretty good and the hip flexor burner is a killer at least for me this is a big weakness area on me. Weekend eating was out of control so today I'm back on track with that and no more slip ups like that, don't mind eating or even what I was eating but I was doing a lot of STRESS eating having some work stress right now someone really irritates me that is there and I have to constantly fight the urge to punch them in the face lol! Overall I am doing better now that we are midmonth and I don't have to work with them this coming weekend so there is a small reprieve.

A true rest day

Friday, March 12, 2010

I have no training of any sort scheduled today and I like that. I have enjoyed the rest and have kept on my diet pretty well too. Actually used the day to clean the house and bag up the clothes that are too big so I can take them to Goodwill. My computer desk is actually clean again. Downloaded a bunch of itunes today figure I need about 26.2 miles worth of songs to get. Got a decent amount of pasta in me today long run on Sunday so I wanna have enough go juice although. Have continued to study my running books for nutrition and race suggestions everything might be a little nerdy but I like to be as educated as possible when undertaking something new. Well I have enjoyed my rest day hope everyone has had a great Friday and enjoys the weekend.
