It all started last Wednesday at Fit Mix. It was killer. By the end of it, my legs were so tired and just shaking. It was not the “easy” night I had been hoping for seeing we had just got back from Spring Break. It was a great workout, but my body wasn’t happy with me…especially, the next day.
So on Thursday morning I had my spinning class and my yoga class. My legs were starting to die by the end of it. I couldn’t wait to get off the bike and stretch my muscles out. Luckily in yoga I got to stretch them out some more, so that felt better.
Then I woke up Friday morning and my muscles were so sore, I could not get myself out of bed. According to my 10K training program, I was supposed to run 5miles (8.04km) on Friday, but that didn’t happen. Instead I took the day off from running to rest my legs some more and decided that I would push off my 5mile run to Saturday.
I woke up on Saturday only to push off my run to Sunday. My muscles were still sore. Although they felt a little bit better, there was no way I was going to make it through a 5mile run, so Sunday was going to be the day. I still didn’t make it through a 5mile run…wasn’t even close.
This of course caused a problem for this week’s training schedule. Since I ran on Sunday, I took Monday off. Plus, on Monday I had a massage, so I didn’t want to run after having my muscles all relaxed.
That brings us to today. Today was just a short little 3.2km run. I’m not sure why the training program has me run three days in a row (not that I did that), but it does. It would probably be a different story to run three days in a row if I wasn’t doing spinning, yoga, and Fit Mix along with my runs. Anyways, my body is feeling better now…but who knows how long that will last when I’m doing all this training.
