Thursday morning burn

This morning was my one group work out for the week.  I did hit barbell class yesterday but these group classes are what I really enjoy.  Our trainer really pushes us to do things that we would never do on our own.  For starters, we did a 2000m row, which is the equivalent of the Olympic distance!  The records I found from past games showed this to be done between 5-6 mins!  It took me 10:20, but I’m not complaining, it was hard!  Our trainer would like to see us all under 10 mins in the future.  I guess it’s good to have goals!

I still have a bum leg.  After my run on Tuesday it started acting up again.  I am starting to get concerned because it has been a good 6 weeks since the initial time I hurt it.  It is really affecting my running.  I’m not going to be able to participate in a 10k that I signed up for on Sunday.  I could probably get through it, but I don’t think it would be the best idea.  I’m debating when I should go back to the chiropractor.  When she works on it, it helps, but I feel like just not running on it had been the biggest help.  This really sucks.  I’m really worried that my cardio will be affected big time by not running.  Guess I need to get into a spin class or out on my bike soon.  It was nice to have a break from running but I don’t want to be broken!
