Lesson of the day: Slacking does not pay off, my friends.
You'd think that would be common sense, right?
In all honesty, I have no idea when I'm going to learn that lesson. I should have learned it by now, with all the procrastinating I do, but jeez, I feel so dumb right now.
Anyway, my trainer had told me to do five miles this weekend. No problem, right? Four days to do five miles. Piece of cake.
Yeah, about that...
I put it all off until today. I sure had a fun and relaxing weekend, but it all caught up with me today.
I did about a mile and a half before my left knee and ankle started to hurt too bad for me to continue. Gah!
They still hurt right now, too.
I've always had problems like this with my left leg, but I probably wouldn't be experiencing this if I would just do the homework my trainer assigns to me. I totally don't tell him I didn't do the miles he told me to do between sessions, but now I feel the results.
I was always bad at doing my homework...
Gah! There's nothing like a good ol' reality check to get your ass in gear. Let's see if I can keep up with my trainer's orders this week and get in the groove. If not, I'll never make it at the marathon in November!
Oh, do any of you guys have problems running on the treadmill? I always seem to slip and slide on that thing, no matter which treadmill I'm at. I thought it might be the way I run, but my trainer says I have good form. I think I'm just too fat, and need to keep my running to the pavement for now. I always have to hold on to the bars on the treadmill when I get on it to prevent myself from slipping off!
