I just wanted to tell you that your new Avatar is just so darn cute!!!!
It's one of my "in the spirit of the peta contest" photos that I took of myself.
You look 16 in that photo
Is that good?
I haven't really updated this for a bit because my heart hasn't been in it. I'm so far from where I was at that it is kind of depressing to report on it. However, I should log 40 km this week which puts me a bit closer to where I want to be (sort of... I want to be at 60-70 km/week). Last week I only did 24 km because of the "rules" I am following from the physiotherapist. Now I've built up to hour-long+ runs so I'm feeling a bit more optimistic about everything. I won't get to do the first race I had planned, but I should be ready to kick some ass on an early half marathon a few weeks later.
I also haven't had much time for weights, since I now spend an hour a day doing stretching and strengthening exercises. I'm doing more ab and core work, including 120 bicycle crunches a day, plus holding planks, and plank push ups. We went for our second yoga for runners class and it's a pretty good work out too. I was sore almost the entire week after my first session! This second one I was ok after.
