The Sunday switch

Sunday, January 20, 2008

So this week I'm going to short myself of 30 mins of cardio today in the efforts to get back on a more "normal" schedule for myself. Granted, I was already way over cardio time for this past week so I don't feel too bad about it :) I have a very sore right calf and can really feel a pull coming up my achilles (sp) tendon. Now, I KNOW that this is not good. The idea of running on a leg that has any kind of pulling feeling is totally turns me off and I would rather pay special mind to my food than possibly put me out of running commission for a long while. So I am passing on the running for today.

Contrary to my last post, I'm going back to my Wednesday workouts because I really, really like having Sundays totally off. I am working 2 jobs right now so Sunday is my only day off and today it wasnt even off...I had to work until noon.
So with my change back I am once again back to MWF Strength and M-Sa with Cardios.

I think that I kind of made up for my lack of running today by my workout yesterday. I pushed myself hard yesterday and ran 1 mile at 12 min/mile pace and then pushed even harder and finished with a half mile at an 11 min/mile. Grand total: 1.5 miles and a cool down in 20 mins. GO ME! THEN, I did a Tae Bo advanced tape (45 mins) and then the Strength training workout...I was so dead but felt so good.

Now I am relaxing, have a hot rice bag taped to my aching leg, took some Advil and am feeling great. Hopefully my new shoes will be here tomorrow along with the new DVD's so A) I will have a new workout to try and B) I will have fully supportive, un broken down shoes!

    That's good to have a day completely off! Especially since you work two jobs! Recovery is very important. Good luck with your changes!
