I still have not been running since R4K. How can you prepare so much and be so motivated pre-event and then everything in your life turns upside down and all of a sudden you are doing zilch?? I am feeling like a big fat beached whale at the moment.
It all started on the Monday when we took the kids to ten pin bowling. We were having a ball and then I pulled a muscle in my quad 😯 Now, I soldiered on although I wasn’t at my best as I was lucky to knock down three pins at a time. It had clearly affected my bowling aim 😆 My husband thought it was hysterical, the fact that I had ran 15kms and pulled up fine but injure myself while bowling 😳 I guess I can see the funny side now but at the time all I could think about was I had planned to run the next day. As it turned out the the sick god’s had something else in store for me. I have had a sore throat and head cold for the remaining week 😦 The cold hasn’t been to bad but the headaches have had me waking in the night and reaching for the lemsips like a geriatric. The worse thing is I have had to continue with life as normal as it is still school holidays and we have been doing the usual outings, plus, the house hunting has continued in a full on frenzy. I am hoping that is coming to an end as I applied for a fab house on Friday night so fingers and toes crossed.
I have probably lost my mojo a bit now but I know it will return once things settle down. I may try and duck out tomorrow for a short run but not sure of my chances or whether I can actually be bothered. If I don’t get out tomorrow I will definitely start my training regime on Tuesday as school is back and I should be back in tip top shape although a little heavier I am sure, I am not game to get on the scale’s 😳 I photocopied my training regime to try and get some focus again and it is on the fridge. I am not using the Lee Troop one now, I have found a regime in the Runner’s World which is three runs a week plus cross training which I can do at the gym.
So I say “Bring on next Week” to get some normality back into this life of mine, well sort off 😆
