Running towards change

So after a race I always wonder when/if I should transition to a different thing. Usually I would be sick of running, ready to hang up my running shoes and pull out the squat bar. But this year I’ve been making such good progress with running and I kind of want to keep going! But I’m also aware that my little powerlifting comp in May is not far off and I have a LOT of work to do to get to where I want to be. Maybe a hybrid approach will work, at least while I’m slowly easing back into lifting?

Today I took advantage of the beautiful day to get out for a chill 4-miler. My hips are still unhappy, so I spent some time to stretch really well afterward (I’ve been neglecting that).

Since Thanksgiving is over, our local grocery store had turkeys discounted from $1.59/lb to $0.59/lb (~$12 for a 20lb turkey, not bad!). I’ve never cooked a turkey, but I think I’d like to host my inlaws for Thanksgiving next year so a test run would be useful– plus, we love turkey! The big ol’ bird is now dry-brining in the fridge and we’ll cook it tomorrow, since my husband’s going to be home. Hopefully it turns out okay and we can find room for all the leftovers.

    That’s a great turkey deal. Good luck with the bird.

    I’m restarting everything because every time I get excited about lifting and stop running I feel gross and every time I run too much without lifting I get hurt. Running form drills are crucial. Good luck with it and you’re welcome to gripe with me about the headaches of being a large runner!

      Yeah, I think there’s a happy medium approach in there where I focus on one discipline while fitting in bonus activity where I can. Thanks for the comment!
