So here's the deal, I'm down for the count again. Now I know what my mom and most of you might say right away..."Annette, maybe you're doing too much-you shouldn't run, its hurting you" and I say, "Nope, but thanks for the advice" lol.
The problem is that GI Jannette (that's me for now) doesn't stretch when she is feeling fine. She(me)is not proactive when it comes to doing what it takes to stay in the game. All joking aside I need to remember that my body isn't as young as it used to be and I NEED TO STRETCH. I need to spend 15-20 minutes before and 15-20 minutes after stretching. Pure un·a·dul·ter·at·ed stretching. I can't be doing a mock duathlon and then running 5miles uphill the next day without rest or stretching.
Now I say this because I am sitting here forced to be sedentary. I was told not to run, bike, swim , nothing. These instructions come from the one and only Mr. Jason (yes, he's back) and I will listen to him because he fixed me the first time. That's where the Debbie Downer part comes in. I'm a bit down because doing all those things IS my cup of coffee in the morning, its what gives me the umph to get through the day and its what I look forward to doing at the end of the day or on the weekends(aside from playing with my 2 wonderful children and having new lovely conversations with the hub ;).
I've agreed to cancel my Saturday 9 mile race which is not something I would have done without persuasion by Mr. PT Genius Jason or pure pain in the groin area lol. So what am I going to do? Mope around and feel bad and eat lots of Charleston Chews..nah I did that last night. Today and tonight I'm going to take some time to intro you into one of my biggest Pick-me-ups...my playlist! It could make or break a good or bad day or difficult run...or in my house can cause a huge after dinner dance party (which some of you have experienced!) Now, on that note...not all people enjoy the same music but give some of my choices a try if your playlist is getting stale and PLEASE, PLEASE share some of yours that you have that get you moving, make you feel good, are great for a quiet moment..you get the hint...I'll take any of your favorite suggestions. I would love you all to share some of your favorites because I love adding to my list!
