So, it’s happening.
I’m getting total burn out from working out so much. Not just from running, but from everything. Though, running is a big part of it. Yesterday after hubs and I finished our Crossfit workout, I was pretty sure I never wanted to work out again. I mean, I was done. A few hours and a gigantic Sweet Tomatoes salad later, I was feeling a little better. But I still need a break.
March is back to back to back…to back races. (Yep, I’m racing 4 weekends in March.) Is it ok to plan future lazy? Because I’m pretty sure that’s happening in April. And by April, I mean the entire month.
I won’t be completely inactive because then I’ll just go crazy from that. (I know. I’m never happy.) But I do think I’ll be cutting all long runs in April and I’m still undecided what else. And with that, I give you 3 things that are not part of my lazy plan. (I feel like this post is very bi-polar.)
1. My new pair of running shoes that have been Pants inspected and bunny approved.
I took my Nike Lunarglides back to the running store (third time’s the charm?) and the girl I talked to this time told me that based on my gait, she wouldn’t have put me in stability shoes at all. So that’s 3 different people, 3 different opinions if you’re keeping track. So I’m back in Mizunos and back in neutral running shoes. I had to get the men’s version because they didn’t have my size in the women’s. Nor did they have either of the styles that are actually cool.
Nope. Just fug man-shoes for Paula.
2. I bought these videos on Sunday. (Half eaten Almond Joy not included)
I’ve never done a Jillian DVD before but I thought I’d give it a shot for something different when I want to work out but don’t feel like leaving the house. I’m also terrible about stretching, so I went for the yoga DVD. The “meltdown” part has me a little worried. Has anyone tried these DVDs yet? Shouldn’t yoga be relaxing? Why are things melting down?
3. Just when I said I’d never do another Disney race, I registered for the Tower of Terror 10 Miler. The race is at night (therefore, I will poop during it) and says:
10-mile course through the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex and Disney’s Hollywood Studios, running on various terrains including pavement, grass and sand. We double-dare you to brave dark and ghostly streets haunted by Disney villains.
Sounds like a fun course and it’s not till September, so it will give me something to look forward to later this year, as well as fullfil my dream of running into an elevator shaft.
Do you ever take a break from working out? (I get burned out about twice a year, take a short break, and then I’m ready to get back to my regular schedule.)
