I need to go in and have a procedure done that I’ve been putting off for a few years. Partly because I was on crap insurance with my old job with a $5,000 deductible and partly because I was a scaredy cat. Now I have decent insurance and with all John has been through medically this year, I can’t complain about my outpatient procedure.
Funny thing now is I know I won’t be able to work out for at least a week which means missing one soccer game (this is HUGE for me!). I’m hoping to fit the event in between the 10K in May and the 5K in July. Is it strange that I don’t schedule a medical thing between vacations, wedding, etc but between races? Yes, runblr for life! I know I’ll be much better to have this behind me but I’m not a big fan of taking it easy (dontcha know). John will have to take care of me for a few days. Hope he can handle it. He better have a fresh bottle of gin handy!
Evening run: 30 minutes in the treadmill for 2.3 miles. Walked more than I wanted to but I’m not 100% at the moment and didn’t have the energy I needed. Got to watch a 2013 Thorns v Breakers game as NBC Sports was just buffering and not playing any games.
Hoping to run my practice 10k this Saturday as my last long run. Hope the weather will participate!
Evening workout: circuit training
5 minute dynamic warm-up then 3 rounds of the following (12 reps each exercise):
Sit-ups while holding a 10lb kettle bell
Superman with side sweeps
Bent over dumbbell row (with 10 lb dumbbells)
Hammer curls (with 10lb dumbbells)
Overhead tricep extension (with two 8lb dumbbells)
Also walked for 30 minutes today and threw out a bunch of junk food. Trying to start out the week right!
