Workout Log: January 30 – February 12

After debating, then posting a 2-week workout log for the first time 2 weeks ago, I decided that this is definitely a good exercise (no pun intended) for me. I found that not only do I use this for tracking workouts, but at the beginning of the week, I also used this for planning workouts. After having a pretty strict running/training schedule for so long, the best way for me to not skip workouts is to have some accountability in my planning. I am more likely to follow through if I plan ahead for the week, than if I just wake up and decide what to do that day.

I am pretty happy with my recovery and how I have been able to build my running back up, along with some quality cross training, but disappointed that the shoulder is still sore. I am calling tomorrow to see if I can get an appointment with the ortho that treated me when I broke my shoulder. He is at Steadman Hawkins, which is a very well-known orthopedic/sports medicine clinic here in Greenville. I have to admit, I didn’t think the guy was all that personable and he definitely wasn’t all about getting to know me as a patient. It was all business. But he is a runner/cyclist and fully understands the desire to want to get back to doing what I love quickly and that is what is most important.
