I ended up taking a rest day yesterday. I could have cross trained but I opted to rest up instead.

I mentioned yesterday that my run went OK on Monday. That pretty much sums it. There wasn’t any pain, I didn’t hurt, but something just didn’t feel right.

I have decided to slow my training down a bit. I am going to go to running 2 days a week with cross training or rest the other days. 

I ran yesterday so now I will start cross train until Saturday, when I will again attempt some sort of intervals of running/walking and we will see how that goes.

Last week I hit 4 days and felt fine, but yesterday just felt off. Don’t ask my how, or why, I can’t actually describe it to anyone but I know my body well enough at this point to know that I need to back off a little. A couple extra days isn’t worth actually re-injuring myself if something is wrong.

Of course, I could be completely wrong but I am just not really willing to take that risk at this point.

 

So what do I do? I keep my chin up, my spirits up, and keep moving forward.

I only can do what I can do at this point and if I feel like my body is telling me to slow down then that is what I am going to do. If I have learned anything during this it is that there are so many other great workouts I can get in and I am going to focus on them a bit more over the next few weeks.

 

I spent most of the day hanging out with the husband and taking him to the dentist. I know, real exciting.

We did put together a dinner of leftovers.

Dinner Comparison

I give you my husband’s dinner vs. my dinner.

I have mentioned on here before about how picky of an eater my husband is. It is really hard to cook and help him get his veggies in each day. 

I have learned to stop trying to make one meal for both of.  The best idea now is to make something similar, but add variations so I can get more of the wholesome foods that I need and he can eat certain parts of it.

I am slowly learning how to make this work. It only took 8 years. 

 

Around 8:00 pm I really considered going to the gym but I said no and told myself just to listen to my body.

I know who is the girl who actually does what he is supposed to do!?

 

Have you ever just felt like something was off in your body?

Do you and your family eat the same things? Tell me I am not the only one with a crazy picky eater!
