Training Run # 13/No more running!
Friday, May 29, 2009
Well, last Saturday I made the mistake of running and it has cost me. I am not prohibited from doing any type of cardio for a week and no running for two weeks per the instructions of my chiropractor. I'm lucky because it is only a 1st degree strain, no tearing or displacement of the achilles. So with rest and ice and a little patience, I should be fine in two weeks. This also means no 5K until July.
The problem is I can't do anything that burns off any amount of calories until late next week. I love to weight train and pilates is fun but the amount of calories I burn is not nearly enough for me. I don't feel as if I'm exercising, which got me in this predicament in the first place. Too much cardio, training for the run and then doing Turbo Jam or something else right after or the very next day. My body could not take it and here I am, itching to pop in a Cathe Friedrich DVD that involves a step or some killer kick box moves. Help!!!!!!!!! But I've learned my lesson, granted the hard way. I am now a true believer of cross training. I might even incorporate some yoga (say it isn't so).
