So I finally got a chance to do my mile run and 40 pull ups wod yesterday. I can remember a time when I used to love to run. Loved it, loved the feeling of being outside alone, pushing myself, just me and my iPhone. Running a mile was a piece of cake. Just a warmup really. Now, forget it. The thought of having to do any running literally makes my stomach upset. I don't hate it per se because there are still days when my body wants to get out there and pound the pavement, I just don't have the love for it anymore. Running is such a mental game and now that I've been doing Crossfit for over 2 years, I'm used to the short intense constant varying movement. The challenge, the pain and the joy of lifting or moving weight I never thought I would ever move is just so much more fun... well, it's not always fun, but you know what I mean. Running is boring. But, I have noticed that my times although they are really slow compared to.... almost everyone else, are getting a little faster. Even at my pathetic pace I came in at 9:20. That was with no real push at all. Proof that the endurance run wods do help I guess.
I did a little more research on the KTaping for my shoulder and am trying the bicep tendonitis approach today. Sounds like I could have that and the taping is just one strip, easy to apply myself. We'll see how I feel during the night since that's when I have the most pain.
Taking an actual rest day today, no walking, running, biking, just rest. I'm not really sore at all, just worn down physically and mentally. Bob's been working a lot and has been stressed, and that wears me down too because I hate to see him like that.
Nothing fancy on the menu lately. Made PaleOMG's coffee marinated steak fajitas again last night which was good but I didn't let the meat marinate in the coffee mixture long enough... didn't have the kick like last time. Lesson learned. Tonight will probably be sketti and turkey meatballs since I saw Giada on The Today Show this morning making meatballs and now that is all I can think about. Acutally, I always think about food.
