I have been fighting off a respiratory funk for about two weeks and can report now that's almost gone. YA! The cough that accompanied it/is brutal. One night I had to exit the commuter bus on my way home due to a coughing fit and go to the drugstore across the street to buy water and then call the Mr to come pick me up. It just wasn't pretty. Boo! The guy staring me down on the bus as tears streaked my face and the cough got worse ... *AWKWARD!*
Workouts have been put on hold. Running has not been an option. So what is the conflicting feelings? Running. To run or not to run. I'm always conflicted about this activity. On many levels I enjoy it. I enjoy pushing myself and the knowing I did it. Of course, it's easier now that I've lost an additional 40 lbs. which makes it even more fun. The flip side ... running does not promote weight loss and can actually hinder the process. *SIGH* That doesn't mean it's not a good workout or a calorie burner.
This next week ST sessions will be back in my schedule and that will feel good. I'm toying with keeping interval runs in my schedule - walk/runs for a maximum of 30-minutes a few days a week. This should satisfy my urge to become a runner but keep things in check for continued weight loss.
I'm trying to find balance; yet, I'm always feeling unbalanced.
My constant is change.
