Something I have been trying hard to avoid happened. Something that every runner dreads….
Yes that is ice
and yes that is my knee
I have been pretty consistently keeping up with my training and taking all the precautions to avoid getting injured. Well, the past few days my knee just isn’t having it. It’s more painful to bend my knee than run so I am keeping my running as is and just making sure to ice ice ICE. Since google is my doctor of choice I decided I most likely have runners knee . I blame the fact that I haven’t been lifting my legs at all and because of that my quads aren’t as strong as they should be. Just goes to show how important strength training is….
This morning’s workout left me dead. *I should mention that my knee is totally fine when I run, it’s more when I try to bike or go down stairs or bend my leg that it hurts*
How to decipher my notes: Incline @ Pace / Time next repeat starts
This one was at a smaller incline than I have been doing but faster. I have to say, I could have done more. Guess that means I am finally getting faster?
Even though I finished the run feeling like I could do more, a few hours later I was beyond tired and feeling super dehydrated!
Last night I had a ton of fun teaching another WOD. This one was a little more focused on weights. One of my favorite things about CrossFit is throwing big weights around, so I was a happy girl!
One of the trainers even took pictures of my coaching in action and I stole it off of their facebook page . I swear I am just acting in the picture! He told me to look mean and badass so, that’s what I did
still debating whether that’s back fat or a muscle. fatty
So far I am loving coaching! I am definitely new to it and it’s so different from the other group fitness classes I have taught in the past. I am teaching again tomorrow night and I am excited for this one, it’s a fun WOD
