not off to a running start

January 17, 2012 at 1:00 pm 1 comment

i haven’t run a step all year. yes, i know we’re only 17 days in but this really isn’t the running start i anticipated for 2012. but i am not letting it get me down. in fact quite the contrary. i’m making commitments. strides. i’m putting pride aside and taking the yankee up on his offer of regular visits for ultra sound and deep tissue ~ on the house. i’m hitting the weights with slow and steady. core work and cross training. i’ve got to do this. i’m tired of being “that runner”. the one that’s always injured. always fighting another woe.

this week was
monday 20 mins elliptical plus upper body weights
tuesday off
wednesday body pump
thursday off
friday p90x yoga
saturday the power of 3 ~ a class with cardio and strength training that ended with yoga based relaxation. can’t say i was a fan but it filled the time left by a cancelled body pump expectation.
sunday a long walk with the hunter and the pups

it’s a start. a week without miles but not a week without wellness.
