Run Time: 50 min (+ 10 walk) Run Distance: 5.5 miles Additional: 3/15 abductors and adductors @ 80 lbs
My workout yesterday was average. I made it to 5.5 but that isn't really where I wanted to be. But okay for a first of the week run. Again, for records sake when I come to look at the progression of my blog later...it was side stitches. I know you guys are sick of hearing about them but I have finally scheduled a doctor's appt with a sports medicine physician on Saturday.
The gym was like a madhouse yesterday. Every piece of cardio equipment was taken most of the time I was there. Luckily upon my arrival it wasn't quite as busy and I snagged a treadmill before the masses came. I don't know why it bugged me so much, but this older guy came and got on the treadmill next to me. He appeared to be an avid runner so kudos to him for that. BUT...he was a really loud runner. His feet pounded the treadmill so hard that I swear he could have worn a hole in it. He wasn't an enormous guy either so I don't quite understand it. I like to be able to hear my own feet tap on the treadmill so that I can feel the ryhythm but I couldn't even hear my own feet! His pace was much greater than mine too so I was waiting for those peaceful moments when he needed a rest. I'm sure this is just me being wierd. I don't even know why it bugged me so much...and my only solution is that I couldn't hear my own feet...lol
I had planned on doing some ab work but ever corner of the gym was packed. There was some class going on as well that was spread around every floor space doing some odd butt in the air move that I'd never seen. So I finished with my weight lifting and high tailed it out of there.
Anyways, I really hope it gets warm outside. I need to be training outside at least a bit more so that I am prepared for the 5k that I'm running in 2 weeks...
