Part of why I've been bummed the past week is because my foot is still a hot mess, thereby greatly inhibiting my training. I have not been able to run since my girls and I rocked out 3.7 miles last Tuesday.
Instead, I've been working out with two of my colleagues doing Crossfit in our school weight room.
On Wednesday, we did 25 push-ups, 50 knees to chest from the pull-up bar, 75 push-presses, and 300 jump ropes. On Thursday, we did three sets of a 300-meter row, 20 ball throws, and 10 pull-ups.
I kid you not: I could not move my arms until Sunday. It was that killer.
I did not workout on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday - and it did not feel good. I was just highly unmotivated and feeling super down in the dumps, and since I couldn't run or do really anything on my feet, I just decided to do nothing. And while I wasn't eating horribly, it wasn't my normal Abs Diet grub either.
Today, my girls and I went to Y-Pump, and I feel like I'm going to be a hurtin' girl tomorrow. It was a great workout as usual, and it felt awesome to get back in the groove. Also, my eating was relatively back to normal with a Kind bar for breakfast, a huge salad for lunch (minus the turkey), and two wedges of veggie quesadilla (leftover from yesterday) for dinner. I also just chugged a glass of skim milk and, I'm not gonna lie, may have another. I don't drink a lot of milk, but when I get the craving, I really get it!
Tomorrow, I have a 3.5-mile run scheduled, but I honestly don't know if my foot is going to allow it. I definitely don't want to injure it more: after all, I need to be healthy for training, and I want it to be fully healed prior to my salt-water excursion in a couple of weeks. :)
