Nice title, right?
You may have noticed that I updated the theme of the blog. We’ll see if this one sticks. So there’s the first part of the post title.
On to the next….Hot
Yesterday I had 3 miles on the calendar. My plan was to get up and to the 3 before work. Fail. Some days I just can not make myself get out of bed. It’s almost like it’s easier for me to get up early on nights that I don’t sleep well, which doesn’t make a ton of sense.
So 3 miles after work it was. Too bad it was like 80 degrees and 1000% humidity. I waited until after 7:30 and then just had to go for it. It.was.miserable. Miserable! We did it but it was a bit sluggish and not at all fun. I brought water and also needed to take a walking break. I started to feel human again around 2.75, just in time to be done 🙂
I got home and started sweating even more, so I jumped in the shower. Post shower I was still red faced and sweating. An hour later, still sweating. I hope I never have to run in conditions like that again. It should be enough to get me out of bed in the morning. Should.
I was hobbling around this morning with a strange pain that I’d almost describe as very lower back and hip pain at the same time. It’s strange. It hurts when I bend over. I tried stretching but wasn’t even sure what to stretch because I can’t pinpoint where the pain is.
At lunch time I went to the gym. My original plan was to run my 3 miles but I figured it would be good to stretch and try to fix whatever this was. So I stretched. I felt OK so I figured I’d try for a mile. Surprising thing was that I felt better while I was running than sitting, standing, or even walking. Makes no sense.
So I did an incredibly sweaty 3 miles on the treadmill, did a little more streching and called it a day.
I’m curious to see how everything feels tomorrow on the spin bike. Fingers crossed!
Have you ever had a similar pain? If so, what was it? Please help!
And that’s it from here. HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!!!! I’ve got 7 on the schedule for Sunday and I’m scared.
