It must be opposite week because today I thought I would want to run after all my excitement last night. I got on the treadmill and all I wanted to do was weights! I wanted to lift and row and bench and get tough! Oh well the plan said to run 7 km so I did that. As an award I gave myself a few reps of various dumbbell activities. Unfortunately, I may have been too excited and possibly hurt myself. Always remember to practice good form and posture!! Not to worry, I’m okay now, but for a good five minutes I thought I was having a stroke or was going to die from pain that ached and stabbed through between my pec and deltoid…? Then it hit my chest and heart and I had to curl up and scream a little… Oh the agony, what did I do? The chest pain is gone and now it’s only to one side. I’ve hurt this muscle or whatever it is that exists there before. I don’t know how I pulled it or strained it. But seeing that I’ve pulled the muscle once before due to my lack of flexibility I think I might have gone too hard tonight. Oh Well, that will be all tonight because it’s time to get out of sweaty clothes and stretch these arms out.

Oh and don’t forget it’s the weekend, yay to daytime (daylight) running outdoors!
