anyone seen my MOJO?
So far, I think I'm on the right track.
Life is good. New influences in my life are positive and exciting, and it's doing me a lot of good. only had one night of drinking since Jan 2nd...and I've been laying off the chocolate... most of the time.
The hip/hamstring seems to be on the mend as well. It's still there, yeah, but I actually did my first run speed workout in who knows how long - and it hurt so good. It was only 200's, but just having those legs move fast was awesome. And the hammy didn't scream back. I have Drew (massage therapist) at Franco's (www.myfrancos.com) to thank for a lot of that too..thanks Drew!!
I've increased my bike mileage (although indoors because I'm a sissy with all of my toenails right now) trying to regain some strength in my legs I've lost over the past year while tending to this hip. I miss my squats and my strong quads and hamstrings dearly - one day they will be back. Right now, I'm happy to do bridges and leg lifts and feel some fatigue...but it's nothing like that burn I felt when my legs were shot from climbing....one day hopefully.
As of 2 weeks ago I was down 4lbs since Christmas, which is another good sign that my MOJO is close by somewhere. I haven't been on the scale since because numbers really don't matter to me, but I can tell you this - I have some more work to do since I still can't comfortably button my jeans. I hate that. That keeps me on track if nothing else. Well, kinda.
So the schedule is working itself out now. Here's the plan thus far: TO GET MY RUN BACK!
Shamrockin' Run 8k - March
Crescent City Classic 10k - April
St. Croix 70.3 - May
Gulf Coast Tri (half) - May
Buffalo Springs 70.3 - June
