Day 31 - Fix me, Please.
|My other passion.|
So first up on the fix-it agenda is my flexibility. Surprise. What he said about that made a lot of sense too. He said "being inflexible is the same as driving around in your car while your parking break is on. It won’t stop you, but it sure as hell puts a ton of wear on the car and requires much more force to get anywhere." Hmmm. Sounds like sage advice to me. So he has me doing mobility WODs everyday so I can work out my issues. He had me do some tabata squats on Friday and I will tell you... my quads were more than just tender the next day, but I could totally feel the difference. He said I was a completely different person after those squats.
The next issue on the fix-it agenda is my running form. I don't lean when running which makes my feet land too far forward putting stress on my IT band. He's having me do some drills that force me to lean by leading with my hips. My inflexible hips. You see the vicious circle here?
So in addition to the mobility WODs and adjusting my running form Seth is going to hook me up with some training for my upcoming triathalon in July. I'll be doing the Eppie's Great Race again. I just signed up with my girlfriend and so it looks like team M.I.L.F.F is back. Its a really fun race. Instead of a swimming leg, there is a kayak leg. Unfortunately this means more logistical headaches on the part of our support team. But I'm a much better kayaker than I am a swimmer so its all good. So as long as I can do the run minimal or barefoot (its only 6 miles) without having any issues I will be a happy girl.
