So, as you can see things have been a little less than steller on the running front. With the weather getting warmer, and me working a new job I am trying to figure out training. Also my leg has been acting dumb so I haven’t been doing well.

Week 4 I started foam rolling, stretching and doing a yoga video every day and I found that helped a lot! Then later last week I stopped and my leg was killing by Sunday’s run. So I guess this shows that the stretching, rolling and yoga actually do help!

Week 6 plan

Tues: 3 miles

Thurs: 3 miles

Sat: 6.5 mile run

Every day: foam roll, stretch, yoga video/poses

Strength: 3 times

I really need to buckle down and get to work. Skipping my runs is dumb. Not taking care of my legs is dumb. Eating horribly is dumb. I need to stop being dumb!

Instead of being upset with myself over my lack of training, and how slow I’ve gotten, I am simply going to make the changes I need to. It is not the end of the world. If I start changing now then I’ll be doing my very best that I can!

With that being said I am going to slide on down and foam roll + stretch right now!
