I QUIT RUNNING.
Tuesday workout: JM Ripped in 30, planned 90 min walk this evening
With all of the pain I’ve had while running lately, I’ve taken 5 of the last 10 days off. It didn’t help. P and I have made a plan. I will be taking a break from running for a while. Running in pain is not fun, not at all and it is taking both a mental and physical toll on me.
My life will consist of lots of biking, walking and Jillian Michael’s-ing. Yoga and spin classes may be thrown in for good measure. I have a 15k in March, and Ragnar in April so I need to focus on being healthy in the long term. I’ll still be working out 5-6 days a week, just now I will be living out my running dreams through my fellow bloggers.
I am exciting to be biking more. P and I rented mountain bikes in Chico and I put my previous fears of Mtn. Biking aside and just went for it. We rented 29ers (the wheels are 29″ instead of the standard 26″ on a Mtn. Bike) and while mine was a little big for me, it was SO much fun. Eventually I will probably get a decent road bike and a decent mountain bike to go with my little vintage commuter bike.
Until I can drop a few thousand (nbd, right?) on bikes, I am looking into purchasing a trainer. This way, I can ride, workout and kick ass, all while watching TV. WIN.
Any suggestions or comments regarding trainers? I’m looking for it to have enough resistance to give me a good calorie burn and really that’s about it.
