Okay. I want to go into this post with the most positive outlook I can, but I have to say I finally had an AWFUL workout.
Last night I planned my workout out and was pretty excited to conquer it.
I have a 10k on the schedule to run this Sunday, so I was using this run to help do some speed work and get me ready for it. I haven’t OFFICIALLY signed up for it yet because I am a bit superstitious and still dealing with some hip pain, but hopefully I can get that under control by then.
I started the first section (1 x 3 miles, 2 x 2 miles) and it actually went pretty well. The speed was not a problem. My hip started kicking in around miles 6-7 which made the last mile or so pretty hard.
At the end of 8 I stopped the treadmill because I was starting to get frustrated. I didn’t take a picture of my times or anything because I was so concerned with my hip pain.
I started back up for another mile, and then the husband stopped me and asked if I wanted to finish out my last few miles and hill sprints outside. I decided to try it out to hopefully mix things up.
About .35 miles in I realized I should have stuck to the treadmill and turned around and went BACK to the gym to finish it up.
This is the only part of the workout I actually took a picture of to see my times and such. This 3.5 miles consisted of my 6 x 10 second hill sprints (HARD!) and easy running. I not only use my pictures for the blog, but also to help me track my workouts so I was pretty frustrated when I realized I had forgotten to take pictures of the main workout.
My hip kept hurting and my body was tired throughout the entire workout. We have good days AND bad days right? I am fortunate that I haven’t had too many bad days recently.
I think this picture accurately describes how I was feeling after my workout. I was beat.
I had every intention of getting up super early before an interview I have tomorrow morning (FINGERS CROSSED!!), but after today’s workout I think I will be putting my run off until later in the day.
I am off to shower and get some dinner with the hubby. I will be back later tonight with a product review! I can’t begin to tell you guys how excited I am about some of the great stuff I have coming up including a few more AWESOME giveaways!
Speaking of giveaways – you have 2 MORE DAYS to enter to PRO Compression Giveaway!! I will be selecting a winner Friday afternoon!!
