Week 43?! Wow...this year has whipped past...seems like yesterday I was doing my Week 1 recap and not really sure what 2013 would bring. It's definitely been a growth and learning year for both Hubs and I...to continue on that front, next week I start my Olympic weightlifting class at PISE! Egads, what have I gotten myself into?! Sounded like a good idea at the time when I signed up. I just hope and pray that I'm not in a class with a bunch of buff young bucks and then me...little five foot middle aged pipsqueak. I'm excited and terrified at the same time, but I'm going to bite the bullet and just do it. Nothing ventured, nothing gained, right?
Gadzooks, my shoulder was absolutely killing me so I did a circuit and scaled the upper body stuff so I wasn't lifting quite as heavy. Sigh...just as my lower body is getting back on track, my upper body is starting to squawk.
Visit to see the physio...thank goodness!
Bah...had to skip bootcamp as I had had needles the night before...most of them were in my upper body so I considered going and just doing lower body stuff but then I thought better of it. With my luck, I'd end up pushing it too hard and straining my glute or hammy again.
Lots of stairs and plyo with this class and I could feel hammy wasn't super loving it, so I modified again. Sometimes I wonder if I baby it too much, but then again it's taken months to recover so whatevs...gotta do what feels right.
Saturday: 8K run
Wahooo! I'm getting closer and closer to 10K and I'm SO excited. I felt a couple of twinges here and there but overall it was a great run.
A couple of little miscues here and there...Halloween treats have hit the office and I snarfled back a couple of boxes of Smarties lickety split. I've also failed miserably at the Great Dairy Experiment of 2013...I've been craving yoghourt for weeks. Like as in every time I go to the grocery store, I look longingly at all the colourful yoghourt containers in the dairy aisle...not sure what mineral or whatever I'm missing, but I've been jonesing for it for ages. I finally gave in and bought a container of Greek yoghourt and pounded some back last night. Oy vey folks...my stomach today looks like I'm five months pregnant and is as taut as a drum. It hurts to press down on it and it's so bad my lulus are cutting into my stomach! Ugh...I should just know better.
Smoky butternut squash pasta and a delicious Slow Cooker Apple Butter from Oh She Glows...also improvised a roasted cherry tomato and garlic pasta with chickpeas, basil and olives (which was delicious, if I do say myself...heh).
