Notes: Ran in the rain today. Id like to blame the rain for my slow pace but unfortunately I think its just me. My pace just seams to gets slower. My legs always feel over trained and under recovered. Yet Im in less pain and my muscle seam to be functioning better, not as tight so I think despite the slow pace that Im still healing and making progress.

This didn't go well. My back spazed out and I had to quit.

Notes: Fuck.. this week is just not going well. Im not recovering. And this was actually three miles because again I got half mile in and had turn back.. and I restarted the app. My damn hair clip broke and I have way to much hair to run with it down. I swear I consider cutting it off at least once a week.

As if my week wasn’t aggravating enough I passed a couple girls running and one of them told one of the other girls. “..she use to be a great runner. IF that’s the best she can do now she should just quit..” I want to punch her in the face but damn it she runs faster then me!!

I see no reason to quit.

Semi rest day.. Short run followed by a lot of laziness!

Image

Notes: for such a short run, it was really difficult! I’m sore, my muscle ache and I’m tired. I’m def not getting enough sleep which maybe contributing to my lack of recovery.

I really should have rested today as I’m still incredibly sore, but we had a early morning storm coming and I just couldn’t resist the urge to run in it! Sorry no little square or stats with this run. I took a lot of pics so there was a lot stops along my run. LOL, running after storm pics may bring new meaning to storm chasing.

My run was about 2 hours and a slow pace with stops for pic taking. And I’m not going to do anything else productive today so no real reason to wait till tomorrow to post.. So here’s my run in pics. These are all cell phone pics so not my best work as I haven’t mastered taking pics in the dark with my cell yet.

Image

Image

Image

When I started this run, the sun was rising and it was light out. But as this storm cloud moved over the area it became increasingly dark. To the point where for a while it looked as if night time had come back. Then suddenly there were all these clouds lightening up with flashes of light and the wind all once began to tear threw the area and for a while there was even a nice rotation to one the areas. I half excepted a tornado to drop out of the sky but it died away. I was almost sad to see it go because you can literally feel the energy of these storms outside when they build up or pass you buy. It’s really quite a rush of energy.

Image

Pure energy..

Image

These are the clouds that had the a bit of rotation to them. For a while they had a nice little circle to them.

Image

Image

Image

Run likes this are always amazing. To be able to start a run with such a beautiful sunrise and then be able to watch this ineradicable storm move in with so much energy and force is just amazing. It’s why I love to run. You just can’t experiences that looking out a window.

Hehe.. it's a legless lizard. You have to wonder if they other lizards give them handicap signs for the east to access burrows.

I took 3 days off running. Did some hiking and a little biking. Took things easy in the hopes of letting my back recover and muscles recover some. I think the addition speed work in my running, along with rowing & lifting was to much change. I couldn’t recover from it. So I rested a few days and I will build things back up but at a slower pace.

My plan is to return to running. Starting with 3 miles a day and I’m just dropping the speed work for now. The rowing and lifting are more important to me right now. I want be lifting this week. I’ll start that next week with shorter lifting sessions. As for rowing I’ve dropped it down to 15 minutes followed by 15 minutes on the had bike. I will build my time up from there.

Sorry not a lot to share about recovery days.. I rest, I walk, I eat… blah, blah..

I haven’t been tracking diet, and aside from this run all I did was my 15 minutes of rowing and my 15 minutes on the hand bike. Short today. Tomorrow I will post full workout day, new goals or I guess just reworked goals.. yet again. LOL, I know it’s frustrating.. but the constant readjusting for my on going back problems is something I’ve learned to live with and constantly adapt to.

AND OMG I stopped stretching during my down time.. biggest fucking I think I have ever made! When I tried stretching today it was like starting over! The muscle tightened back up really fast it’s like starting over. They back and leg muscles are extremely tight and painful. ugh.. my own fault though..

For exercise I use the pro version of endomondo with a heart rate monitor. For diet tracking I use my fit pal connected with body media.

The squares are made by cropping screen shots and putting then in a collage.

Im finding it to be a faster and easier way to trackk then copying or typing things out. Plus I can post them to instagram with a few training notes.

Notes: I think I could have done 5 but I have a new training plan and I thought it best to stick to it for now. Last week I was having recovery problems so I pulled back on training and I’ll have to rebuild again.

Image
Notes: I managed 25 minutes of rowing today before my back spazed. I think this is mostly a problem with the muscle tightness. It’s the forward stretch giving me trouble. I think muscles just need time to stretch and lengthen.

Image
Notes: The walk went good, I carried my training pack from hiking for added weight.

Image
Notes: That is actually a bigger def then I wanted. I guess it’s ok though. I’ve really struggled to lose even a little weight and it looks like it actually might be a result of thyroid problems. *sigh* Which probably also explains the bouts I have with extreme fatigue sometimes. I’m not going on any meds right now though. Every sense the back injury and my training again I’ve had like this domino effect of injuries, health problems ect.. for example the back injury cause me to walk hunched for a while which lead to alignment issues which lead to a knee problem, then a foot problem.. ect. But with each case I’ve been able to work through, rehab and fix each problem so that I’ve come out better off. So I’m just going to continue doing that and assume that as long as I continue moving forward I will eventually reach my goals. So I don’t really bother fretting or getting to wrapped up in each little problem. I just focused on what I need to do and the end goal.

…and in case you haven’t seen them the toddlers.. I named then Grumpy & Perking, because one of them is looks grumpy and the other is always way to happy to see people. They live near me and they haven’t quite learned to fly yet so I find them hopping around and sleeping in the grass on occasion.

This was my first run.. it really looked like the storm was passing. There lightening had mostly died down and the rain had stopped. I even looked at the weather map and it showed the rain past us, so I went on my run. A mile in it very suddenly started to pour! I mean pour! With in minutes I was running in water that was covering my feet completely! *sigh* So I turned around and headed home. Other then that it was a good run.. The pace is off because I stopped and took some pictures while running. One day I’ll just use the auto stop function.

Image

Take 2 ...

Image

The pace a bit off here to, yes I took a few pics on this run to. At least it was drier. I followed this up with 30 minutes of stretching, Along with post run stretch routine I have a back rehab stretching program so I mixed them together.

Running went good today. I was tempted to increase the mileage, But with the problems I had last week I’m hesitant to go off my training plan. I’m a little afraid if I start rushing miles that I’ll end up like last week.. stuck not being able to recover. On the bright side I wasn’t in any pain today. My knee seams to be slowly getting better and my back pain is mostly gone. I am still stuck with the insane tightness in my lower back and legs but hopefully if I continue stretching and not slack off it that will improve quickly.

Image

Image

I actually didn’t mean to have this large of a deficit, I ate more then I normally do so I thought I was doing better then that. I guess I under estimated my calorie burn for the. I didn’t make the best food choices at dinner, I ate 3 bowls of Fruity Pebbles with unsweetened coconut milk for dinner. That probably wasn’t good?? But the rest of the day was good. Mainly fruits, veggies, brown rice & vegan protein.

(My son thinks the face in the clouds looks like a pug ate a baby and they morphed together. Which I guess makes it a puaby.)

I’m finding I need a good sensor of humor and the possibility of killing the only kid in the house with my cooking! So he’s close to adulthood you would think if he survived my cooking this long a few more years would be a breeze. But no. His food allergies are clearly becoming more sensitive. We just learned about them a few weeks ago and I can tell there’s a lot to learn when someone says your kid can’t eat wheat, gluten, corn or peanuts! There are so many ingredients that are made from or with these ingredients! It’s difficult to buy anything that doesn't have these ingredients in it so we've been eating very simply lately. Sunday we “thought” we had found a bbq sauce that was wheat & corn free, so I made bbq chicken for the kid.

BIG MISTAKE!! Before he had even finished eating he was struck with stomach pains, quickly progressing to shortness of breath, ill feeling and swelling in his face and neck area. We quickly treated him and he improved before it became life threatening, but it was damn close and very scary! We keep benadryl and an epi pen right in the kitchen so we are prepared! Even with that though it’s still a bit scary.

This is the first time an anaphylactic reaction has happened so quickly. I’m not sure if this is a sign the allergies are worsening or if maybe his reaction to allergens (in this case we think corn) has become more sensitive. Like when you stop eating certain foods for allergy reasons does the body have a stronger reaction because it’s no longer accustom to dealing with the reaction? I’ll have to ask his doctor.
