|This kid LOVES Chinese food. I don't think I ate Chinese food till I was in grad school!|
Monday: Rest day! Grocery shopping and a stop for Chinese food before shopping. Little red loves egg drop soup!
|Rainbow poop emoji found while shopping. Kind of cute.|
|Didn't get the meat heart I wanted for V day but did get some chocolate that we all shared|
Wednesday: Back to strength training. After my hip and knee thanked me for doing Konza, I thought it was time to get back to it. I only got through 2 rounds of the 6 exercises before I felt like complete jello, but I will call it a win. Mel watched my form and did everything with me, even though she had already done weights. We farted, we lunged, and we laughed. I really hit the jack pot when I met her :)
Thursday: 6 miles with strides. Happy birthday Mel!!!! My legs were D.E.A.D after strength the day before. Getting them to wake up for strides was hard. Getting them to stay awake to walk stella post run was even harder. I can tell I did some major squatting the day before! As the day went on, I got more and more sore. That work out kicked my butt so bad!
|Yes, this is in a bathroom, but look at that hoothoot!|
|Weighed into the 40 lb weight class and had new socks but it was not meant to be:(|
I had a headache all day, but after eating lunch, was able to set out for a slow 6. It was the first "hot" day we have really had and I could tell I was not ready. We walked every mile for a tenth of a mile because my legs are still shot from that strength training work out. By mile 4 or so, I was feeling much better but dang work out! You aren't suppose to make me so sore that I can't run!!!!
Sunday: 16 miles. After a nice restful day hanging out with little sick man, I was hoping there would be some life in my legs. I got a great night's sleep and woke up hydrated and not near as sore. Unfortunately, a few miles in, I had a very sore spot deep in my calf muscle that was pulling everything below up and making running painful.
I decided to try and make it work by stopping periodically and massaging my calf muscle. It was probably a stupid idea to do, but I did it. I needed to know if I could get it to let loose and continue on.
