Ok, So I Can't

I tried it, I hate it, I am done with it. I talked about quitting my OCD habit of writing and tracking food a couple of days ago. I actually was joking about it being OCD, but I now wonder if it isn't for real OCD. I have gone nuts trying to not track and quite frankly, I am done with it. I am going back to tracking today! Wow just saying it was nice! Whew. Ok I tried something new, so that is good right?

I am totally amped up today over the fact that in 24 hours, I will be getting dressed and ready for my first ever 5k run!! I expect I will do well as I saw the course the other day. Mostly flat and I run up hill all week in my workouts. Should be pretty awesome. I am looking forward to some competition in my running. I have also signed up for another 5k in April that is for a local elementary school here in Van Buren. I meant to walk it last year, but just felt ridiculous at the idea of walking a 5k with knowing that people would be running and blowing me away. I am too hyper competitive, but I can't help it.

I am having to modify my work out routine this week to account for taking today off for to rest up for tomorrow's 5k. I usually take off Thursday for my day off then shoot for a distance run on Friday and Saturday. I worked out yesterday but made it a light one. I ran the program on the treadmill that actually got me to believing I could jog for real as a workout. It is very cool to find out that you are in so much better shape that the program that got you started doesn't even really effect you anymore! I got done and was thinking "wow that used to kill me". I wasn't even breathing hard. But here is the weird thing. I am sore as all get out today! I pushed myself all week, and had fresh legs every morning. I did one light workout, and the next day I am sore and stiff? that is crazy!! So since I am gonna have to do something to replace my usual jog today, I think I am gonna do a weight workout this morning. I used to do one every morning, but jogging has kinda took over my life lately. I am now running short on time every day, so the weight lifting went to the way side. I need to figure out a way to bring it back to my days though, I do enjoy a good weight training session.

Well, I have dogs that are demanding their entry to the house, so I better go oblige. Ya'll have a great day!
