|Pizza from Pearl Street Pizza in Indy|
Mind your own business, it was delicious and I earned it.
Fast forward to this morning. As I sit here writing this, I'm over-weight and sluggish, and running six miles on Saturday, and five miles on Sunday over the weekend ... well ... it just about killed me!. It's seems a little surreal because just seven days ago I had trained for, planned out, and executed just about as good of a race as I can run at the Indy Mini-Marathon. But immediately after that, this self-indulgent dummy went into total relaxation mode. I didn't run at all the following week, had pizza twice and desert three times, and don't even mention core & ab work ... please ... it wasn't even a fleeting thought. Basically I took the whole week off.
The break from running was by design. (The crashed diet wasn't) I hadn't taken a week off in about a year, so it was a good time to rest my legs, and bask in the glory of my fastest running feat yet - ha. But this week I'm back at it. I'll start slowly building to another race and attempting to get my diet in check again. But it's not gonna be easy. Did I totally ruin my body and everything I had worked for in a week? Not completely, of course. But the older I get, it's amazing how long it takes to get into shape versus how quickly it goes away.
So here I go again ... starting with planks in about 5 minutes. Have a great week!
... be great today!
