(at least it's not this bad I guess)
I hope to remedy that this week though. I'm better than this. I should be beyond getting stuck on an emotional roller coaster. So, I'm planning to try to go to the gym or for a long run tomorrow. Then hit up the gym for cross training three times this week.
(Love this...Totally me right?!?)
So yes, I'm happy with my 9'28" pace on Friday because it was a very hill course and I killed it. And, the best part of all - no leg pain while running. I still get some occasionally when I'm not working out, but I suspect that that is pulled muscles from my workouts verses and injury.
In addition to my cross training and focus on physical fitness lately, I've also been trying to think of things I want to try to do when I have some downtime and the things that matter to me. It's going slow, but it's a start. It's easier to come up with the list of things I want to try than it is to think of the emotional side of what values are important to me and who I am, but I'll get there. I think I've got most of the basics and fundamentals down - now it's the more peripheral things I think...but who knows.
I ran across this someEcard and it made me giggle a little. I think I've said several times in the past week to myself that I've done so many squats lately that my butt must look AMAZING. Hopefully I'm right...it feels pretty damn good anyway.
Tomorrow begins a new week. And it will be better, I can feel it.
