Life. Spring is a crazy time of year for me, it feels like I am always on the go. Unfortunately, I also tend to let things slide, like healthy habits. I've been training for a spring marathon, but doing little else in the way of cross training or strength training, and paid for it. I'm currently dealing with a strain in my hip flexor with a week to go until my 26.2. Rest massage and hot yoga are helping, but it's frustrating to not run when it's been so nice out.
This week I had a lightbulb moment when I realized it's my own fault I'm injured. Still carrying too much weight, not eating right and not working any of my stabilizing muscles. So...here we are. On the menu...alternating kick boxing and some kind of strength/circuit training EVERYDAY in addition to my running. Try to make it to hot yoga once each week. Eat better. It's time to stop worrying what the other adult in my house will or won't eat and start cooking healthy, varied meals again. The kids will feel better, I'll feel better and he can deal or find his own food. I won't cater to fussy adults at my own expense any more. More water, I know I feel better when I drink it...so just do it.
I have lots of races coming up...it's time to do what I do best. Onward and Upward!
Make today great!
