So I mentioned that my resolution this year was to run more, and I've really been working on it.
Last week I managed to get out for a run 3 times during the week, and 3 times the week before that. Which is a 300% improvement over where I was.
I've also been great about doing pilates every day as my cross training. I really need to get my core in shape. I was reminded of that recently.
3 weeks ago I hurt my back, because apparently I am too old and out of shape to do leg lifts while a 7 month old hangs on to me.
I took a couple days off, but it wasn't enough. A week later I exacerbated it so badly walking to my car that I was in spasm all evening. I learned my lesson. This week I took off from strength training. I'm anxious to get back to it and build my strength up again. It's so hard to feel so sore and limited!
Monday: 3 miles during work, along the coast. It was insanely windy. The wind was so crazy the day before that trees had been uprooted and knocked over.
Tuesday: 3 miles during work, along the coast. Most of the fallen trees had been cleared, so the only evidence I got was this:
Thursday: 3 miles during work, along the coast. It was a fantastic day for a run - clear, cool, and calm!
Friday: Stretching. Lots and lots of stretching.
