The last few weeks have been a little crazy and very exhausting. My running buddy and I decided to shake things up a bit, which has thrown my daily routine off. I have been working crazy hours and my procedure is coming up sooner that I would like. I really wish that time would slow down a bit so that I could catch my breath. Then again, I am also ready to move forward from this medical issue and start focusing my efforts on planning an awesome wedding.
Overall, I feel that my workouts have been pretty good during the last few weeks. Of course, I also feel like I am not doing enough. I am running at least two times a week but I would like to add one or two more runs each week. I would like to be doing more in terms of strength and cross training. Besides a lack of time, I think I have been hesitant to start a program before my procedure. I just don’t know how long it will take me to recover or feel good enough to work out. I would really prefer to start a program when my body (and mind) is ready to go all in.
