So anyway, here I am on the injury train. Boo boo!! (I'm on a roll!)
I'm actually in pretty good spirits all things considered. It is what it is, and truth be told, I did it to myself. My coach was going back over my training log and looking for training errors, but honestly, I attribute this to lack of strength/core training. Something was bound to give, and with my weak abs, it was my back.
I know my abs are weak because I got back into the gym this morning for lower body/core work and did some ab exercises that were fairly easy a couple of months ago. Today? Not so much.
What a bonehead move on my part neglecting ab work. Even elites do it.
Well hello there, Kara Goucher! If you're doing weighted sit ups, I sure as hell should be doing them too. (source)
One thing that has kept my spirits high is this GEM.
I love you, Alter G, even though you give me Camel T at 50% of my body weight. Luckily, I'm hanging in there at 70-80% bw these days.
Can you believe that I get M-F 0600-1800 FREE access to this thing?!? Me neither. So I will shut up all whining because I know I am lucky as all get out.
Before you start hatin' though, check this out.
That's really all that I can say about this.
So looks like I take the good with the bad these days.
Chiropractor X 3 weekly, Alter G, and tons of strength/core with a side of pool running and yoga, here I come!!!
