I haven't written a Weekly Workout Recap since the last week of October. A few weeks later I took a big step back in training in an attempt to let my body heal from Adrenal Fatigue and Hypothyroidism. I've felt much better since but my consistency has waned. My first race (a 5K) is this month so I'm resuming these posts to help me maintain consistency and motivation.
I haven’t written a weekly workout recap post since the end of the summer. At the time my body was feeling so out-of-sync that the workouts weren’t anything that I wanted to remember. Sadly, not much has changed in the past two-and-half months. I have been seeing a Functional Medicine doctor who is helping me to heal my body (digestive system). Some days are better than others but I am no where near being completely healed. I am however feeling a little more energized and had a decent week workout-wise.
I was hesitant to write this post because as of right now I really don't know if I'm going to run the Fall marathon I have been planning to. Its not that I don't want to, or that I'm injured because I do and I'm not, but I've been going through a period of cutting runs short or simply skipping them altogether. I got sick a couple of weekends ago and wasn't able to get out of bed, let alone do any workouts whatsoever. It took about a week and a half to fully recover but then I started freaking out that there wasn't enough time to train for the race. You'd think that would be enough to drive me to run every single mile and then-some; instead I did the exact opposite.
