Weights…

…how I’ve not really (and yet completely) missed you.

Today I re-introduced strength training into my routine (part of my lets-get-into-a-schedule plan). Yes, I should have done this a couple weeks ago, seeing as how it’s been almost 4 weeks since the race. But I’ve been enjoying the extra running so much! It seems like my body hasn’t and its time to get super wicked strong again.  I think I’m dealing with a little bit of tendinitis in one of my knees, so I want to correct that and get my ligaments and tendons strong too.

Based on how my body is feeling right now (jello), I’m going to venture a guess and say that tmrw isn’t going to feel too great.  Sure, I’ll love the so-sore-I-don’t-want-to-move feeling but (and I’m putting this out there now) I’m going to complain about it!

I almost didn’t do anything today. I’ve been having really intense (and always scary / disturbing) dreams which have been making me really tired in the morning. It’s gotten so bad that this morning my mother told me (and this is a direct quote): “You look really awful. Just terrible. Are you sick or something?” Gee thanks mom. But I trekked to the gym and felt a lot better when I left, more refreshed and awake.  Love exercise and the fact that working up a sweat gives me energy.  Enough energy to tackle more MCAT? Hopefully 🙂
