Jack Frost nipping at my....heels...
As November sets into its second week, I officially have 3 "runs" under my belt. Last Thursday, my sports therapist had me run for the first time since the triathlon, August 1st. It felt great! My hip didn't bother me at all and I was beaming from ear to ear when I left.
With a page full of homework I was ready to take on my running routine coupled with interval biking, swimming, hip & core strengthening exercises and my mainstay 3 days of personal training a week. Now the issue is getting all of this in my schedule! My therapist wants 3 days of run/walk intervals, 1 day of barefoot running in sets of 100 yard sprints, 5 days of interval biking and/or swimming and to continue my commitment of personal training. In a perfect world I wouldn't need to sleep.
I am working at getting all of this in my already busy work schedule while I prepare for the holidays and the end of my first semester back in school.
This morning I enjoyed my first set of sprints barefoot...hmmm, my calves are curiously on fire now! I really enjoyed it, although it is going to take some getting used to.
Oh and one more thing...my trainer is having a competition between all his clients...the client that best reaches their goals and attends the most training sessions by the end of the year wins free training for January & February! It's totally on, watch out! :)
Here's to a happy hip and a great November!
