The Painful Hammie and Motivational Boost
Wednesday, July 10, 2013
I hurt so bad...and it does not feel good. My hamstring is killing me and it hurt to even walk on the treadmill. I planned on tacking five miles onto my running this week today, but did not feel like increasing my pain. I walked for two miles and then rowed for fifteen minuets. I felt defeated, but that feeling only caused me to reassess myself, my fitness, and my nutrition. I do not stretch regularly, I have not been fueling my body properly, and I have not been in the zone lately with my runs.
Yes, I am not surprised my hamstring pain is currently invading my leg and runs. But it is safe to say that I have been motivated to rededicate myself to better nutrition, mindset, and proper training (stretch once in awhile girl...it is not that difficult!).
Do I want to be at the top of my game? Yes, but I am no where near an athelete status or fitness extraordinaire. I shall take my time and do it right! It will most likely save on strains and pains, am I right?:)
