The weekend has been very relaxing. Saturday morning I went to get some groceries and went to the gym after that. In the afternoon and evening I relaxed by surfing, watch tv, read and make some puzzles. Sunday was more of the same. In the morning I went for a 10K run but after that it was pretty much the same day as Saturday.
I’m having major pain in my lower back. And I have only myself to blame for this. Yesterday evening I sat on my dinner table, first behind the laptop and later making puzzles, for 4 hours straight in a wrong position. When I got up I already felt my that my lower back was hurt but I thought that a good night’s sleep would make it go away. It didn’t. It bothered me the whole day up till now. I didn’t go to the gym as planned but I did walk during lunch with my friend K. because walking hurts less than sitting. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.
Saturday I went to the gym for a cardio workout: bicycle, elliptical, rowing and three different runs on the treadmill (normal, hills, 750 metres speed). I try to improve the distances or the time every time I do this training so I have a challenge for myself.
Weather: inside, sweaty .
Distance: 3.44K / 2.1 miles
Average time: 6:25 /km
Average speed: 9.4 km/hour
Sunday morning I had scheduled a 10K. To be honest, I didn’t feel much like going but 3 things made me do it. First I have a 10K run scheduled next Sunday, it’s a ladies run and I wanted to run 1 long run before that. I know now I’m ready for it and ain’t nervous if I can make because I will finish it. Second, Amy had scheduled a 14K run and she posted that she didn’t feel like it too so I made her a deal that I too would run so she wouldn’t be “alone”. And third it was Heidi’s Springtastic 10K day. It was a good run after all and I was glad I did go.
