Every time I considered opening up WordPress to write a post, I decided to nix it and instead opened up my canasta app and played some games instead. That’s basically been my life lately. I should do x, y, and z but nah.
After taking about Buffalo, I mentioned having a plan that was exciting and I’d share soon. I did! I had a great plan! But nah. See, my plan was to dedicate myself to this mile race series and also a 5k every couple weeks. I was going to train for that, too. The problem is each race was anywhere from $25-$30 and both race series were 5-8 races long. As much as I would love to do that, my bank account would laugh. And as much as I would love to use my credit card and deal with it later, the banks aren’t too keen on that when you’re going through there house buying process. Yes! I my pre-approval and am now in the official market!
It’s a small trade off for now. I basically had to pick to save some more money in the meantime -a few races or another 10 pack of CrossFit? I’ll let you guess what won out.
Lately my running had been slow (12:00/mi) with J and Dunkin for 2-3 miles every few days. I’ve been lifting 2-3 days a week too and hitting PRs and seeing the difference in my body. When I was training for a race, I couldn’t dedicate myself to my strength work at CrossFit because I was so sore. Let’s face it — I never have been a girl who throws weights around so it made me exhausted and sore! Now, I’ve focused on my strength and it’s rare I’m too sore the next day…. finally! Last week I did one class Tuesday (running based), a really intense class Wednesday, and then an Olympic lifting class right after and I was fine the next days. I would never do back to back classes or days!
So no, I’m not running much but I am busy and still working out, just adjusting priorities. Now that I finally have a base for strength training I feel comfortable adding running in, I just need to get my ass out of bed before work to do that!
My goal is to not be as much of a stranger and start logging workouts again! Things are happening and I want to share!
