Cross-training: Let’s Get This Over WithOctober 28, 2008 at 11:52 am | Posted in Cross-training | 6 Comments
Time of Day: 6:00 AM
Duration: 50 min. elliptical
Notes: I stuck to my promise and did the elliptical this morning, and I expect a full turn-around from my feet. They’ve had two days of non-impact activity in a row now, which I expect to not only heal all my pains, but make my feet stronger and faster STARTING TOMORROW, FEET, DO YOU HEAR ME!?
Except I bought cheap shoes at Target on Sunday and now one of my heels is bleeding profusely. But the shoes are purple and cost $20, so shut up, Feet, you will wear them and you will like it.
Because I totally rule on the elliptical, I expect that my quadriceps will be sore. This is why I got my cross-training over with early in the week; wouldn’t want to risk sore quads for Sunday’s race!
Yesterday’s wind is gone, but it was cold enough this morning for several old ladies to nag me for not wearing a coat to the gym, ensuring me that I will “catch my death. Where is your mother, young lady!?” In Texas, of course, this means that it is simply “Woo! I get to wear a sweater!” weather and will even warm up to “Woo! I get to wear a sweater and flip flops at the same time!” weather later this afternoon. It’s easy being a runner in Texas. Two days in a row without running! Can’t wait to get back tomorrow.
