So, I was able to get a workout in today at 4 am. I was already up and I figured then I woul not have to endure Dwight Yoakum, nor the looks from the staff as they trundle in.
The security guard, and the other nurses looked at me like I was out of my mind, but, the guard let me in and locked me in actually,which wassomewhat reassuring.
I had a very difficult workout. The treadmill of doom was pure misery. I ended up doing about 3.6 miles,then somework on an ellipitical, then some lunges with a weighted ball, crunches, chest press, and the Running armsexersise with weights. I hate to admit it, but my quads are still feeling it hours later.
I suppose I will not be running Canyonlands. I am not in very good shape. I am always out of breath here when running, and it is actually not very enjoyable for that reason. I will volunteer rather and still attempt to enjoy the race atmosphere. I am very annoyed because I trained so well to a point and then things fell apart. But I am also resigned. I had the flu and was really sick for almost a month, so I suppose that screwed things up.
Currently Looking for a new assignment, in Warm Florida. If my License comes through and I get the position (Looks Like in Orlando) I will try to trainup to run The Minnie 15K in May. Only 9 miles. Might be doable. At least it will be warmer.
