Having a blog about running is really difficult to keep up when you haven’t actually beenrunning. Post-surgery, the comeback has been slowgoing. I have been extremely busy with teaching and coaching and to be honest…running is not all that fun when you’re not in shape. I found myself going out for a run…and then needing to take a week off to recovery because everything hurt the next day, and the day after, and the day after… I have been running more as of lately and I am grateful for all my running buddies that are keeping me accountable and making running fun again until I can handle twenty+ minutes without having an asthma attack!
So, if I have not been running what have I been doing?
I recently took up a barre class, a fitness class that combines yoga, pilates, and ballet. This class is… SO TOUGH. We do a lot of repetitions and variables of specific exercises that work mainly your core, seat, and arms. This class works for me because I need someone to tell me what to do or else I do one minute of planks and ten bicep curls and call it a day. I am continually surprised that I am able to physically walk out of that class each night.
The only other thing I have been up to is…WEDDING PLANNING-sort of. We are in the midst of planning our engagement party and I have been crafting away getting things ready for the event. My school’s spring break was not too long ago so I was able to try out a few new crafts. I am single handedly keeping Richmond-area A.C. Moore’s in business thanks to this party.
