- 8 hours complete on the road or gym
- 5 gym workouts
- 5 strengthening workouts...2x lower body 3x upper body
- decided that I need to rest my foot
- 5 cross training workouts elliptical or stationary bike
- only 16km completed on the roads
- still not tracking calories
- still not icing my foot
So overall I am pleased with my intensity, and I am starting to feel it (muscle/strength changes). Officially I am back to my pre Xmas weight of 246 lbs, and I am feeling momentum downwards!!!
Sundays run was awesome for the first two KMs and then the foot..the damn foot!! My intention was to go to ten KMs and if I felt good to go to 13, but I opted to do the right thing...STOP (its a miracle)!! lol It was disappointing but it really felt like it was going to get bad so common sense finally intervened!!
Today at work, I thought, I have worked hard, may be its time to take a night off, and so I did. I feel extremely guilty and my foot still hurts. LOL The foot is asking to take the week off from running, and just cross train, and we have an agreement, if its not better I am going to see if orthotics (sp) will help. Will it? I hope so!! Or just get better damn it!!
Foot placement just changed the pain; I really hoped I could resolve it my self but so far no such luck. The elliptical and or bike does not seem to make it quite as angry so that's the plan for this week. The benefits from the weight training are numerous, so this might be the break I need.
I saw an article on breathing this week and having been a brass player in the past I am going to put some things into practise that I would like to share later in the week that will make training easier even at heavier body weights.
To another week of progress!!!
