It can suck sometimes......

so yesterdays workout was a hard swim, my arms still hurt from the 1600yds of pulling intervals and some significant resistance training which had me bringing up my sets to 3 of each exercise including lunges, etc...( see where I'm going with this......). I was also supposed to get in a 1hr extensive/intensive run yesterday but unfortunately that did not happen so I decided to do it this morning because I only have a bike to do tonight so I thought no problem, 1hr of running, ehhh.

Well, waking up I knew my quads were sore and my glutes, and with 12degrees registering outside I was like, " well this run will be a bit challenging". So after some dynamic stretching off I went, my legs felt heavy to begin with and they continued the whole hilly way ( 1-2 stops for about 15 seconds to rub my quads) later, I was home. I actually turned off my garmin 1/2 way through because I didn't want to see what I was doing, it was making it through today and getting home. It sucked, I'm mad, I hate when a workout isn't successful. And I know, my coach and everyone else will say, " you'll have days like this, its okay", " you can't be on 7 days a week", well I know that, I'm not nieve, but I can still think it sucks when a workout doesn't go my way and when I'm sore, it just sucks sometimes......ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

  1. That is so funny, because I had the same problem yesterday! I killed myself doing functional/power exercises and weights on Monday, and then I had a hard run Tuesday, and then I just FELL APART on my bike workout yesterday. I was totally bummed, and just wrote in my log THAT SUCKED.
    and my coach said, of course, You can't be on everyday--it's okay. etc. I know, I know....
    ;) so I hear you.
