So I aqua jog. And I google. This is what I googled up, 3 quick things to make me feel better about my new "heavy weight belt"...
1. Super great cardio, and done right improves aerobic threshold
2. Resistance training without impact
3. Challenges you to keep a well-balanced running form (mentally challenging)
The garden has once again landed as my little piece of heaven on Earth, I'm pretty sure this is therapy like nothing else. The baby spinach popped up and I literally felt like a million bucks, things DO GROW was my reminder. Not to mention, a growing garden leads to more adventures in the kitchen. A favorite:
Kale, frozen banana, cup of frozen berries, almond milk, some Hawaiian green powder from the sea, and chocolate protein powder = new favorite!
It's Thursday, it is also a much "bigger" training week than last week...if you call 5 hours more a lot! I've got to stick with this "moderation" on the foot thing till the x-ray on Feb 3rd, so my usual "run and jump" into everything I love has me tip-toeing...
That's it from me tonight, tomorrow I've got 3hrs on the bike! That will be the longest ride in over 6wks! I'm seriously so excited!! Of course the doctor said if I feel anything to hitchhike home. I already know I won't feel a thing (wink, wink).
