My day sucked. I basically spent the entire day undulating between tears and bouts of denial. I’m not going to bore you guys with the petty details of my life. I know that there are MANY people out there with much bigger problems than what I am dealing with right now. Just know I had a very bad day.
Normally, I would handle my dilemma in the kitchen. Copious amounts of carbohydrates can cover any pain. Today, however I made a smarter choice. I hit the gym.
I did the speed workout from the Marathon Roadmap. It consists of walking for five minutes, followed by running for 2 minutes then walking a minute 6 times. The goal of the workout is to run as fast as you can for those two minutes while maintaining a consist pace.
Normally, I am not a fast runner. I don’t want to run fast. I hate running fast. Today, it was just what the doctor ordered. I visualized all of my problems behind me and literally ran away from them. I must have been anxious to escape them; I sprinted the first two sets, and then was not able to maintain that pace for the entire workout. That’s okay though. It was a learning experience. With practice I will find the correct pace.
After my run, I did some intense yoga. I love yoga, and I have not made enough time for it lately. When I came home I made the rommie take some yoga pictures for you to all enjoy (or snicker at me, whatevs).
