Workout #3: Cancelled! :(
Today was a 'tad' bit different than Tuesday. :( First, the weather temperature has dropped dramatically. Two days ago, I was soaked from sweat during my workout; today, I wore my hoodie during my warm-up because it was a little too cool for me in shorts and a T! I am not complaining ... I was happy to see the return of humidity-free weather for running! I am just having a bit of trouble adjusting to the quickness of the extremes ...
Today was my first 'bad' track workout and it had nothing to do with the track. Last night, when I was at yoga, I was very uncomfortable during the whole class when sitting on my butt. My glutes were very tender, a combination of the challenging 2K incline I ran twice on Sunday and a reflection of how hard I have been working physically for the last few days. It has caught up with me! Last night, I found it challenging to find a comfortable sleeping position.
My warm-up today was extremely challenging; my legs were cement and sluggish, and my glutes were making themselves very 'aware' to me. I completed my two workouts as best as I could, but today really was just not my day. :( I am overtired, I have too much on my mind, I am sore and hey, I was due for a bad workout. :) This might prove to be my "best" workout in the sense that it's a wake-up call to watch myself between now and my 5K race so that this doesn't happen again on the day when I want my training to count.
I am taking tomorrow off, I will run 5K on Saturday, and then run my 10K race on Sunday easy. :) I taper next week and then I have my 5K race the following Sunday.
