Happy April 1st or April Fool’s Day. I was gonna pull a joke on ya but I know y’all aren’t fools so I won’t even try.
Anywho, this morning I walked four slow miles around my neighborhood. I wanted to run but I know that would be pushing it because I have that little pain, you know, the one in my ass.
So, I walked instead of running and I’ve been foam rolling and stretching like mad. I’d love to be able to stretch out like some of you yogi’s out there but that just ain’t happening. I’m like a short fat rubber band inside. If you stretch me too far, I’ll either snap right back or snap in two. I’d be the girl in the middle here:
And I’d love to be able to lift weights every day or every other day and really build up my strength but unfortunately, I’ve gotten quite weak in my glutes and hamstrings and when I do lift weights, like last night, I look like this:
So, I gotta go slow with the weights, obviously.
I also thought about doing a dance workout but I’m not really all that coordinated.
Although, I could probably do this next workout because that’s pretty much what I look like when I dance….clueless, it’s not pretty.
Unfortunately I think I may need some more time off which means no Iron Girl half or even the 5K. I’m going to have to redo my entire race calendar. I don’t mind telling you that every single time I see someone running, I get jealous. Not jealous enough to do this:
But still jealous.
That doesn’t mean I don’t want to hear all about your running. So tell me did you run today and how far?
