Fitness Friday

While many of you are probably jumping up and down that today is Friday, I’ll be honest, it’s my Sunday.  Kind of a bummer, huh?  But it’s been a great week and I’m looking forward to the weeks and months ahead of me.  I mean, it’s fall after all, who wouldn’t be happy?

My full run this past week was just under 6 1/2 miles (whew!) and I ran it in my new Lunar Glides which I love! But Monday morning I found myself experiencing a good amount of discomfort and pain in my upper left shoulder / trapezius & spine.  Very similar to the pain I had earlier in the summer that was deemed Costochondritis.  I’m not sure if that’s what this was, even in the early stages but I took a day of rest Tuesday, some ibuprofen and eased back into my workouts.  There’s no need for injury.

And despite the pain, I had a great week of workouts and stuck to what felt good for my body each day.  That’s important to note, whether you’re healthy, sick, injured or anything in between.

I also made sure to keep up with Courtney’s yoga challenge to really stretch out my muscles and prepare them for the next run or workout scheduled.  Flexibility training is just as important.

Sweet Tooth, Sweet Life

Anyway, here’s what the week looked like:

I’m really trying to buckle down with the studying which sometimes means taking myself to Starbucks to study so I can get a change of scenery and focus.

 Happy Friday!
