So... this week was all about doing what my chiro gave me, and nothing else. I have to admit, when she told me my lateral strength was pretty good, all the work and effort I've put in since March (!) caught up with me, and I felt like "oof!!" I just needed a mental break, but I got back on the wagon over the weekend. Since the weather was pretty windy Saturday, I did Pure Barre that day, then ran outside after lunch yesterday. I lasted 3.77 miles before my knee started giving me trouble, but my chiro and I have been messing with my leg this past week. My Garmin even said I'd done my fastest 5k on its records! I was quite happy about that. I'd even stuck with 1/1 intervals since my legs wanted to go fast during my last outdoor run, but my lungs struggled to keep up. My lungs did much better yesterday... hopefully I'm acclimating to this altitude.
Now that it's a new week, I'm motivated again to keep up with my strength training, and I should be getting more exercises from my chiro. Sometimes I just need to hit reset and take a small break. It's February, and I'm another month closer to Bolder Boulder. I think 3.77 is a good start.
Linking up with Hoho Runs and MissSippiPiddlin for Weekend Wrap-up.
