Well, I’ve made it this far. This week has been frustrating, to say the least. Work has been hectic, and I am feeling a bit overwhelmed. My cold has decided to return with a vengeance, so I’m tired and not feeling well. Since I haven’t been feeling well, my workouts have been lighter and crappier than I’d like, which isn’t helping to improve either of the aforementioned stresses.
But, I’ve made it past hump day, so the week is more than halfway over. Tomorrow is a new day, and we’re not far away from a whole new week. I plan to make the most of it, and do my best to snap out of the funk I’ve been trapped in. Unfortunately, my normal strategy for dealing with stress is to amp up my workouts, and since this cold has been kicking my butt and stealing my energy, that option’s kind of been taken off the table. What are your stress relief strategies? Do they change when you aren’t feeling well? Suggestions would be much appreciated! I am told that I am gonna give myself a heart attack if I don’t quit stressing.
Guess what! I just signed up for another 5k! So, I have the Arnold Survival Race coming up in less than a month (HOLY CRAP, is it that soon?!?! Gym buddy, time to make me run more!) and then The COLOR Run in July! If you’ve never done a 5k, the Color Run is a GREAT race to start with! The atmosphere is a blast, and the color stations help to break up the race, so even for a NOT runner, it is relatively easy to get through. I had so much fun running it with Trav’s sister, Cara, and her roommates last year that we decided to do it again! My mom is even considering joining this year!
Ok, I owe you a few workouts, and then it’s time for me to hit the hay. I have *got* to kick this darn cold to the curb. So over it, already!
Here’s Monday’s and Wednesday’s workouts:
Tuesday was the Winter Shape Up week #3 work out! I modified it slightly to focus more on shoulders than biceps (substituted lateral raises for the curls) since I had done bicep work out Monday. Never fails, Gina kicks my bootay!!
So, now it’s way past my sick-y bed time. Have a good Thursday!!!
