[if this post is up, it means i did not have another relapse and am actually at work on a friday. pretty soon my co-workers might think i am conveniently scheduling vertigo episodes on thursdays/fridays. anyway, hopefully you are reading this and i am not sitting on the bathroom floor again.]
i've been feeling 'ok' so far this week, and have been able to spend a little more time working out this week than last. i'm still trying to take it easier on myself by not running/working out as much as i usually do and slowly increasing back to those levels. running doesn't feel as awkward as it did last week, which is nice.
monday - got home from work and it was like 40 degrees and rainy. blah. sure i've run in much colder temps, but i didn't feel like it and darn it i wasn't going to. :o) i settled for 40-mins of plyometrics/circuit training instead, and it wore me out; my legs were sore tuesday.
tuesday - i ran! i took it slow and told myself i could always walk if i needed to. the longest i ran last week was 40 minutes, so i stopped at 50 minutes to ensure i didn't push myself too much. 61* and sunny helped a little.
wednesday - had dinner plans an hour away, no run today. later in the evening i did a 55-min plyo/circuit workout which was even harder than monday's. i dripped with sweat and my upper body was sore thursday. the circuits are about 3-4 mins hard/30-secs rest and repeat, so i figure it's decent "cardio" as well as a little strength training. (not to mention i struggle to do them for the full time interval!)
thursday - more running! 61* and cloudy, but at least no rain. i might've wimped out if it was raining. sad, but true. i increased my run time to 55 minutes today, keeping it easy. i celebrated running 6+ miles, as last week i only got in 4+ mile runs.
