How to handle training in a week like this....
I was all excited and ready to go but OH MY GOD, MY SHINS AND BACK! We still did our half hour walk out and back but holy cow I had to stop every couple of blocks. I think its time to take stretching very seriously and also I just want to say I found it weird that I was not sore after the long walk, but I can't help but wonder if maybe that day was fallout from the aftermath. We still did 2.1 km out and back another (assuming that much back) but I am actually amazed that that was the case. I was miserable. I thought if my first walk had been like that there never would have been a second.
So then on Friday we walked to and from our friends at lunch. That was just a km each way, but I was still feeling it in my shins. For some reason the pic shows the shorter walk and I could not seem to get the screen shot right but we did the route that is 1 km.
Shabbat we missed because we knew Aunty Marcia was sick and when my parents didn't show for lunch, we didnt want to miss them when they came.
Sunday, I shopped for the funeral and then made dinner for 20 and after went to work until midnight on the funeral. I worked a 16 hour day Monday and then a 12 hour day Tuesday and I am in the middle of at least one more ten or more hour day. I feel like I got hit by a bus. My feet are killing me although thank god my back is not.
I don't think working out in these circumstances is an intelligent thing to do, so I won't be but I am comforted by the fact that I also am the very opposite of sedentary. Very Opposite. I actually really need to get back to work so I am going to cut off here but I really just wanted to get caught up before I lost my thoughts on that one painful walk.
I do notice however that my heart rate and breathing are slowing down even in normal activity. I really am trying hard to work at a higher heart rate while trying not to injure my short fat body. The last thing I need is knee or hip problems where there were none before....
Gmar Chatimah tova and may we always and only hear good news!
