Here’s the deal, I refuse to get injured. It is okay if I get injured because of some fluke accident or something like that but I refuse to get injured by being a non smart runner. So far this week I have done two tough workouts (tough for the fitness level I am at now) and my body is feeling it.
Even though I woke up mentally wanting to run I am thinking long term (for once in my life) and decided that today would be the perfect day to just do some yoga and run with a friend tomorrow and do my long run Saturday. I think 2 running rest days a week for a while until I build up a better base and get used to speed training is going to be my plan. No more getting hurt because I want to do too much too soon. Anyone else want to join me in this goal?
A little P90X yoga with my favorite yogi was a good time. She has mastered upward-facing dog.
I am kind of all over the place with today’s post. When I was watching the biggest loser yesterday three statistics really stood out to me.
-On average, children watch 4.5 HOURS of television a day (that does not includes video games, time on the computer etc.)
-The answer to the above question is 60%!!!!
-Kids are getting most of their sugar intake from sugary drinks and soda. (I know, I am not one to talk about sugar but I forget that soda is such a huge thing)
Are these stats shocking to you?
(PS the part on BL where they had to crawl through bubble gum on the show made me a little sick)
It was Brooke’s 5 month birthday on Tuesday (I will forgive you if you forgot to tell her happy birthday but don’t forget on February 15th to wish her a happy 6 months birthday). I see this whole #tbt thing on Instagram all of the time (I think it means Throw Back Thursday or something) and so I thought we would go back in time to the week before Brooke was Born and a picture of her at 8 days old.
I swear, if she gets any bigger…..
Ever tried P90X? Ever had the desire to try P90X?
Did you watch a lot of television growing up?
-On weekdays we were able to watch 30 minutes and I think a little more on the weekends. When I was a teenager I don’t remember any rules though.
Did you drink soda or other sugary drinks as a kid?
-We were only allowed to get soda at restaurants (although we rarely ate out) and sometimes we had grape juice at home.
How many rest days are you taking lately? What is your main reason for taking a rest day?
