TUES: 2M and PiYo
THURS: Zumba and 5M on the stationary bike
Just got back from my run and it sucked. I can safely say, I won't be able to train this time around in my PureFlows; which is super upsetting. I don't think my body is ready to go minimal- although I have been running/training in my old Nike Frees and I can handle them. I tried to reincorporate my Flows today but it didn't work out so well. Mile 1: My feet hurt so bad, I walked. Mile 2: My calves hurt so bad, I walked. Mile 3: My bladder hurt so bad, I walked (Thank you, baby Jesus that most parks/ playgrounds have bathrooms!) Mile 4: My mental state hurt so bad, so I walked. I honestly only ran about 4 minutes total. But hey! It's time on your feet, right? I can't blame it all on my Flows, though. That yoga class was awesome but left me super sore.
I'm also having a hard time wanting/ psyching myself up for long runs. Usually, it's all the other stuff- cross training, running during the week- but now I can't motivate myself to get out the door on the weekends. I'm sure being sore all the time and doing all my weekday runs on the treadmill isn't helping matters. Maybe I'm over doing it during the week? Maybe I can only be good at one or the other? Maybe I need to incorporate more outdoor runs?! Maybe I should've thought of all these things during the 4 mile run this morning instead of focusing on the pain and it would've been better?
Aren't you glad you're not inside my head or my running partner? haha. Anyway. I am excited about having another day to recoop. YaY! Memorial Day weekend.
How was your week of training?
