I really prefer running in the mornings. I love winter and cold weather, but I am ready for it to start being above freezing in the mornings so I can run. Running in the afternoons/after work is always challenging for me. My HR always seems to be higher, energy lower, etc. Same thing today. The wind didn’t help. I was just really slow.
After my run I started really noticing some pain in my left hip, hip-flexor, and just my right left side in general. I am pretty positive it is just sore from my core routine yesterday, but I may drop my core work tomorrow and tabata just to be sure. Honestly, I was going to drop my tabata anyway because of how exhausted I am this week. There’s no need to overdo things this early on.
I ate at Jason’s tonight and wanted 1/2 a sandwich. I forgot to order gluten free bread. Dangit.
I was super swollen/bloated today. Probably won’t improve much tomorrow since I ate some peanuts and cajun mix at Jason’s. For the record, I know WHY I am bloated, I just need to buckle down and make an effort to get that taken care of.
