I did it on Monday and while doing it I just hated it. I actually never liked doing it. And as I’m a firm believer that you have to do things you like otherwise you quit at some point, I decided I won’t be doing it again.
What am I going to do instead? I’m going to do cardio once a week and swim once a week.
Maybe I won’t have a muscular body by doing that but I’m okay with that. Besides when I read the results Shelley gets from swimming (she does swim more in a week than I will) there’s still hope.
I have never mind doing cardio in the gym and as a child I used to swim a lot. I’m a very good swimmer if I say so myself. My membership of the gym lasts till February next year and I better use it in a different way. The gym has a pool I can use so that is what I will be doing from now on and she how I like that.
I went to see the fysio today and it’s kind of serious. I have a starting tendinitis at the outside of my elbow up to my wrist. I didn’t give it enough rest after I hurt my elbow. I need to take things slow with my left arm which is a bit of a problem because I’m left handed and do everything with my left hand. But if I don’t take rest it’s going to get worse.
I can still run (don’t need my elbow for that) and I can try swimming and cardio but have to stop as soon as I feel it starts to hurt. And I have to take it easy on the housekeeping because when I do that the pain gets worse. Luckily R. is going to help me with that. I have to watch out with lifting stuff too. I have to rest it as much as possible. It’s a good thing my vacation starts on Friday and I have time to take it easy. I have another appointment Thursday next week and we’ll see how it is by then.
First time since a long time it rained during my run. It wasn’t raining very hard, in fact it was rather pleasant to run in it. I had to do 8K (5 miles) this morning but due to domestic circumstances I switched tomorrow’s run with today and did 3.2K (2 miles). I still had to add walk intervals but the run was much better than Monday.
Weather: rain, little wind, 15C (59 degrees)
Distance: 3.2 K / 2 miles
Average time: 6:41 /km
Average speed: 9.0 km/hour
Last song on Ipod before finish: Blondie – One way or another.
