What wild imaginations one forms
where dear self is concerned!
How sure to be mistaken!
Gosh, it is amazing what 2 weeks can do. I mean I hear all the Special K commercials or the Adkins start where people stop eating carbs and see a difference in just 2 weeks. Well I am not exactly talking about my weight here, although it is a factor. For 2.5 weeks I have not run. I had a great excuse the first week, I was hurting. I rested, but I didn't rehab. I wrote a post about it recently. Since identifying the fact that I have not been stretching to rehab, do you think I have turned it around? Nope. So back to what 2 weeks can do. It can do great diet things apparently, but it can also tear you down. In 2 weeks I feel 20 pounds heavier even though the scale and scarcely moved. In 2 weeks I went from confident 1/2 marathoner to depressed couch potato. How does this happen? Good thing I got my Runner's World today, I need a little print inspiration.
With the blah blah blah about 2 weeks, I know that I can get back on track in just 2 weeks! Do I sound like an info-merical? I just need to decide what returning to working out is going to look like. My aim is to:
- not burn myself out
- be consistent
- build in plenty of stretching
- slowly start multisport training
Other things going on...
What is a fun drastic something you have done recently?
