Yes, I know, this is not my usual Manic Monday post. But between my foot issues, a mysteriously painful, possibly-strained muscle in my abdomen, and the Thanksgiving holiday, I didn’t really do much last week. I made it to the gym exactly once and did some random strength stuff at home, but nothing really worth writing about.
Today is December first, and while for the last few months (September, October, November), I’ve done monthly goals and recaps, I’m gonna skip that today as well. November was a bit of a wash. I ran twice, got injured, and biked twice. Again, not really much worth summing up. And since I’m injured, I won’t be doing too much training, so there’s really no point in setting goals for December, other than “don’t gain 10 pounds because you’re not running anymore.”
I will hopefully be seeing my doctor this week and figuring out what’s up with my gimpy foot. Until I’m running again, I’ll be spending a lot of time with the recumbent bike and focusing on strength training, which has definitely been lacking over the last year or so. I’m hopeful that mixing it up a bit and getting myself stronger will mean that all this time off from running won’t necessarily mean a huge loss of fitness and speed once I’m back at it.
And now, to dispel the gloomy tone that has unintentionally crept in, I give you this:
IT’S ALMOST CHRISTMAS!!
Do you have any goals for December?
