Here’s some advice, that I learnt the hard way:
Don’t go to the gym and do a hardcore workout then race off to the football then race home again and go out drinking – without drinking much water along the way.
This is what happens: dehyration makes you get drunk FAST. Getting drunk fast makes you do stupid things. Getting drunk also makes you more dehyrated which makes you wake up with DOMS to the power of infinity.
Learn from my mistakes!
I went to my PT tonight and got my program. I’m so glad I changed trainers because this one is lovely. We did lots of stretches and I feel so much better.
I am having issues with my program though. The whole basis of it is to correct my posture/muscles imbalances etc. Once all that is sorted, then working on building muscle and increasing my running. That makes perfect sense, don’t you think?
Except, in the short term, I have to cut back running. As in 3 x 2 km a week. Yes, that’s a total of 6 kms a week.
A big loud voice inside me is screaming: IF I CAN’T RUN, Í’LL GET FAT! That voice is also saying I have 10 weeks until I go to Japan… I don’t have time to dick around thinking about long term advantages; I need to lose weight STAT.
Seriously, 6 kms a week: is that even considered running?
