YAY! The official pictures from Saturday’s Stand Up 5K came out today. Here I am crossing the finish line. Looks like I’m walking, but I wasn’t. Especially with a time of 32:48. Not fast, but not slow either.
Today, I almost skipped the gym. Almost. I had a really hard time falling asleep last night. Went to bed and just laid there for over an hour, then a storm rolled in and there was all sorts of loud booming going on from the thunder. I put up with that for about another 20-30 minutes before I took some NyQuil. My alarm went off at the usual time and I was so tired from lack of sleep I reset the alarm for 10am and decided I would take today as a rest day from working out. I woke up at 9:45am, looked at the time, thought for a minute and said “forget this, I’m going to the gym! I’ve got time!” Ate breakfast, drank my coffee and right at 10am I was heading out the door for the gym. Got a really good workout in…legs and abs. However, during my first exercise (squats), I tweaked my lower back and now it hurts. I took a muscle relaxer and some ibuprofen and it feels a little better, but it still hurts. It’ll take a few days before it feels 100% again, so I should be okay come Sunday when I’m running the 10K race. I’ll have a 4 mile run on Friday to “test” it out at any rate. I’m sure it will be just fine, tho .
