A classic mistake

Some days are good and some days are bad. This is how it is and will always be. However the challenge is to face the bad days and let them past. Yesterday it was somehow harder to warm up. I felt weaker. But i did my 30 minutes warming up, I made a distance of 2.0 and burned 407 calories.

I had pain in my back so I wasn’t sure that I could continue to run as usual. But after the cross hill I felt pretty good to try.  So I run 30 minutes, burnt 392 calories, ran a distance of 5.24 km. The average calories pro hour was 785, and I did 5.42 min/km, no vertical distance. I did 13.1 lap with an average speed of 10.5.  At the crossfit we started very quick to come up to a high speed, therefor I wanted to try something new today. So I started at the speed I ended the last day before 10.3 and after 14 minutes I increased to 10.6.

After that I went on rowing, 10 minutes, on resistance 10 as usual. After that I did some weight. I was fine until I met a very fit girl and asked her about a machine. She was very kind to show me how to do, however I took to much weight on and today I woke up with pain in my left shoulder and in the back. So be careful and go easy. I normally increase the weight very slowly in order to be sure, better to be safe and avoid injuries.

The strategic choice

There comes time when we have to look deep into our selves and realise to understood fully ourselves. Sometimes we believe that we are in a certain way and we are than put into situations where reality shows that it is in an other way than what we expected.

Working hard In Teneriffa gave me a good ground to continue my training on when I came home. I almost immediate started to go to the fitness centre, aware of that if I didn’t continue to exercise I would loose the result I now had, so I  went back to my gym and continued to do training.

Always when I am training I try to push myself. I always think how to become better and I think of training progress in the long term. So I improved my results slowly. And in the end I started to find it less challenging and I wanted something for. There it was, one day I found the crossfit. It is different, I got a coach and that has helped me to find new muscles that I didn’t used so much before. But what more, I discovered something about myself-I didn’t knew how to improve better myself. I was pleased, I pushed myself hard at the gym. I sweat strong and my physic improved, so what could actually be wrong?

Summing up, we all have a choice to make to be in the comfort zoon or to try to take yourself out from it. I am so happy I did. I believe I made a good strategic choice for improvement in my training condition.
