Manic Monday – 02/02/15

Aaaand it’s February. Wow. Holy crap. I’m a little overwhelmed by how quickly January went by, but I’m starting to remember that life passes a lot faster when you’re busy. Rehearsals and workouts are keeping me on the go WAY more than I’m used to. I’m still adjusting to the new normal, but on the whole it’s going well. I could definitely use more sleep, but that’s always been a problem of mine, so I’ll just keep on keepin’ on.

Monday 01/26/15:  Body Pump (check out my review here); 3ish hours of various marching and dancing activities at rehearsal

Tuesday 01/27/15:  Rest day. I should have done more stretching and rolling than I did, but I was simply too exhausted.

Wednesday 01/28/15:  Ran 3 easy treadmill miles and stretched it out before a short, low-movement rehearsal

Thursday 01/29/15:  10 minutes of incline walking on the treadmill to warm upCXWORX (check out my review here)

Friday 01/30/15:  I intended to run on my lunch break, but forgot I had made plans to meet a friend, so “all” I did was 3ish hours of jumping rope, marching, and dancing at rehearsal

Saturday 01/31/15:  Rest day. Lots of cleaning and organizing around the house because my father in law comes home from a month in New Zealand next weekend. He’s a bit Type A, and we’ve been pretty lax without him around!

Sunday 02/01/15:  2ish hours of jumping rope, marching, and dancing at rehearsal

Another week with only one run, which, while not ideal, is better than no running. My left knee has been bothering me quite a bit, most likely because I’m just doing way more activity than I’m used to. I’m taking Ibuprofen a couple of times a day to help with inflammation and trying to rest as much as possible. No running for a few days, and maybe no Body Pump this week (boo). The last thing I need right now is to be out of running for another 6 weeks, so I’m trying to be cautious at the outset.

Happy Monday!

      It’s such a bummer to feel like you’re not giving it your all. I’m really glad you’re able to do your short runs! Fingers crossed I can do a couple of miles later in the week.

    Woohoo on the super activeness; boo to the left knee inflammation! I’d suggest icing that knee for 10-15 minutes when you get the chance too. That should help too.

    “I could definitely use more sleep..” yeah, that’s a problem I have too. But I guess everyone does? I’ve been trying to go to bed at least one minute earlier every night (eventually, I’ll get enough sleep then, right?)….baby steps.

    You are a jumprope machine. Seriously killing all these workouts lately! Take it easy on that knee. The short break from Body Pump seems to be helping me so I hope it helps you too.
