Tomorrow morning is my regular personal training session. It's usually at 9, but tomorrow it's for 8. I have to get up at 6 to be fueled and ready to get to the gym. That's early for me. I'm very lucky that I get to go to work late in the day. I work mostly with folks in CA, so I get to be lazy!
Today was not the best run. I pushed myself too hard early and ran out of energy. I have to remember - slow it down. Once a week for tempo runs (which this was not) is when I push it. And I even have to work on how hard to work on those runs! I was semi-proud today that even though I walked up a couple hills (with Garmin off, so distance didn't count), I did not stop at 3 miles but pushed myself another 3. I had planned on 7 today, but 6 works.
My hips and hamstrings have been tight recently. I plan on warming up for PT tomorrow with the elliptical - probably 15 to 20 minutes. Then if I have time then some foam rolling. If not - after PT. I am so bad at stretching - once a workout is done, I'm done!
Tonight I am thankful for special Christmas treats. I came home tonight and opened a box of chocolate peppermint soy milk. A sweet treat to end the day!
