Kind of on a temporary plateau
Saturday, September 10, 2011
I'm plateaued right at 185 the past few days. Actually it has been yo-yoing from 185 to 189 for the past month. I'm formulating a plateau escape plan. I'm healed up enough to start back to C25K. That I have to begin from scratch is not necessarily a bad thing. My ankle has healed up much faster than we expected and aside from feeling occasional soreness is recovered enough to pound the pavement gently. No fast running just a slow pace and easy. I did have to get a brace for the injured part as it was weakened by the injury. I am in serious need of stress relief. Running kind of makes me put all of my anger, hurt ,and pissed off emotions into it. I HATE RUNNING! I'm not doing it for fun or because I like it. I'm doing it to burn calories and get the fat off my butt. And that my friends is how you break a plateau. If you have been on your butt recovering from an injury and not putting a lot of energy out you will plateau. My workout CD's are good but not good enough.It was kind of like treading water the past few weeks. I was dropping pounds when I was running and that is what my body has ordered for itself. Now if I can just stop falling into potholes and wrecking all my good work we will be fine.
