I Kinda Like CRAZY! Now I am not disciplined to go by myself, so having this CRAZY couple works out well.
Problem is I have been cross training with "LISA". I run a mile just to keep the blood flowing but I am working on core and miscellaneous other exercises with her. The first week my abs hurt so bad that it hurt to breath. I actually got a light chest cold and was hugging myself to keep my abs from wretching forward. It took 4 days to recover.
Then this week I have no idea what I did but all I can tell you is I am in the hurt locker STILL. It is my legs. They hurt to just sit. The thought of even going to the ladies room scares me. I have stretched, rolled, Motrin-ed, rested, and even prayed and my legs and bootie are still screaming. They hate me.
This week I cut way back on my miles and my speed. I have a race this Sunday. Because I am still in the "Hurt Locker" I need to bring it down a few notches. I am praying for my body to mend and heal.
You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you,because he trusts in you. Isaiah 26:3
Yesterday I took 2 hours and went raspberry picken. I was in my own head for 2 hours. No interruptions for over an hour and a half. The sun beating down on me, quiet, still and the grass damp from the evening dew. Peaceful. I challenge you to take time to be alone in your own head. For me I was scared enough to be alone with myself, my mind is a scary place I never usually enter alone. But it was very therapeutic. I guess if you struggle being by yourself with no interruptions then maybe it is scary for others to be with you to! I actually enjoy being alone, But I struggle searching through my thoughts. I have such a hard time focusing. I find my quiet time very purging. I seek God to help me focus and compartmentalize my thoughts, goals, expectations, and all the stuff that gets tangled up there. Since raspberry picking is Seasonal I guess we will keep running there is a whole lot more loose wires and knots to unravel up there!
