Today I used my small band –
and worked my hamstrings for the 44. I started with the band around my ankles and moved it to cover one foot –
From the start position, I pushed my foot (keeping it flexed) straight back –
As you can see, it is hard to stay straight up but part of the work was a balance challenge!!! And, I don’t want my hamstrings to be unbalanced so I had to do the left side, too!!
I love small moves like this that are so effective!!!
And, today was another running day!!! Of course, I’m a wimp and don’t bundle up and hit the streets like so many hard-core runners (it is currently 3 degrees!!!) and I needed to catch up on Dance Moms anyway!!!
1.5% incline – 8 miles in 61:37 + 0.75 miles super easy
Currently, I feel like that ship represents me!!! I feel like I have toppled over and am just barely staying above the surface!!!
I’ve talked about the fact that I have sleep issues (meaning I rarely sleep more than 2 hours at a time) and lately I have been averaging around 4 hours of sleep a night.
Last night I woke up at 2 and never fully went back to sleep before my 5:00am alarm!
I have a booth this weekend at the local Bridal Fair and I feel like I’ve put a lot of energy into this and still don’t have a clue what I’m doing. Lately, we haven’t had a lot of bookings at our venue but the expenses (thanks to numerous issues with the apartments) are out of control!
I’ve made several commitments involving other things (some guest posts, personal stuff……) and I’m excited about all of them but they churn around in my brain during the night, too.
Factor in the extreme cold and my complete dislike (hate) of winter and I just feel myself sinking more and more.
Maybe I will just imagine myself right here –
Or, I will just go back to my mantra –
Happy Thursday!! I will be at the beach (if only in my mind!)!!
