CRAP

Crap. That one word descibes tonight's excercise. Because of the weather, which was very stormy and humid, I decided to head to the treadmill at the gym. When I began running, I felt like I had never run before. My left rib hurt from the jarring. I just could not run. After 10 minutes I quit and headed for the elliptical trainer and survived 20 minutes. I can;t believe what happened.

I do need to taper for Sunday. But talk about a ego deflater.

Waddling with my head down....................

Pick that head back up! That is more then most people attempted to do today!

Sometimes it goes that way! At least you did something!

At least you made an effort. I didn't even try to waddle today. I just sat on the couch eating doughnuts.

I've honestly heard that in the process of getting stronger before a race you reach a point where you are really worn out--completely. I would suggest you try to spend some time in bed resting and having faith in your body's ability to heal and bring you back stronger than ever. Hard to do, I know, but I believe that this works.

Chin up! Crappy workouts are just a few...and not all! The next one will be better...if it helps, I had a horrible run and swim today too! (must be the alignment of the planets or something! Can't we blame it on somebody besides ourselves?) :-0
