Last time for a while because of my injury. Actually, I was advised to stop doing splits and backbends for two weeks. I really have no motivation when stretching hurts, and I’m regressing greatly. It’s super discouraging. 😦

So, I ran on the treadmill for the first time in FOREVER. I actually hated it less than I thought I would. It was really great to be honest because I did not have to think about pacing myself AT ALL. The only downside is that there’s no scenery, and I am therefore, especially towards the end, constantly checking the time and distance progress.
So I set the pace to 8:34 minute per mile and then 8 minutes for the last 0.25 miles. Hence the 11:05. I’m actually pretty proud of that considering its the first time I ran a full 1.5 miles since last year. All I need to do it cut about 10 seconds off minimum, 30 ideally. My classmate and I are going to try to run 5 times a week, alternating between long and short. I might take my PT test here in VA.
I threw in a strength training workout at the end. There was no way I was going to be able to do the normal 10 rounds in a timely manner with good form, so I went for 5, and I feel great anyway. I miss working out. It’s literally only been 1 week.
We did some stretching today in class. It really made me miss stretching, but there’s still some pain in my piriformis/hip, so I’m going to take the full two weeks off. I’ll be back at it next week at the INTERMEDIATE/Advanced level. LOL. Cobra, Bridge, and Foot to Head pigeon, I don’t mind doing Advanced, but camel will probably be intermediate. I’m only going to be stretching 4 times a week from now on though, alternating between intense and light days, because I feel like that’s my body’s limit. I think I could do advanced on intense days and intermediate on light days. Also, I still plan on doing Ashtanga and Tumbling. K, bye.
