Motivation and Injuries
At the moment it seems hard to motivate myself…my brother is constantly on my mind. But motivate I must! I think of my new grandson!!
Then there are the aches and pains…on Monday, I strained my hamstring doing a deadlift, didn’t warm up enough. Let that be a lesson to me…
I ran on Tuesday, maybe should not have, but, did. Walked yesterday 2.5 miles, to the grocery, could feel my hamstring…tender. Stretched, but not enough.
Thursday I did nothing, (well not, nothing…errands and blog posts…) I swam on Friday afternoon, 30 min. with only a few rest breaks for a drink…I wish I could keep better track of my laps…I always loose count around 10…oh well.
This morning(Sunday) I ran 3.3 in the drizzle, slow and with walk breaks…about 40 min. Hamstring felt good. I think I need to be more diligent about stretching and foam rolling!!
Off to Colorado tomorrow, to visit my brother. Will try to blog, leaving my laptop at home, just the ipad with me, hopefully I can figure out how to use the mobile app, and how to get pictures… if not I will recap in a week…
Last Sunday afternoon, my husband and I met some friends, visiting from Australia, for coffee in Portsmouth, NH. We live about 10 miles from there. What a great town!! If you get the chance to visit in the summer, it will be well worth your time!! Here are some of the sights.
I realize these are just tidbits of Portsmouth…you will just have to visit to see the rest!
