Not Feeling Great About Training
For a while now I have not really been able to get into my training. I've been doing it, but it has been hard for me to motivate myself. I've been doing it because I've felt obligated to, and because I know I need to do it to try to be healthier and stronger. It's hard to say any of this because I have loved training for so long. Of course, I'm certain that everyone gets like that from time to time. It doesn't matter what you are doing, occasionally it's going to be hard to get motivated to do it.
I will not let this stop me, though, I will keep chiseling away at it. I enjoy the strong man style of training, I enjoy pushing a car down the street. It's amusing to see the number of people that stop to help me while I'm all but running with the car. So, there are still things that make me happy about it.
What is it that doesn't, though? Well, to be perfectly honest, I think it's because of the back pain I've had. It's been caused by a few different sources. My IT bands caused some of the lower back pain, as well as a couple of places in my glutes and the back itself. I've constantly been working on that, and there was a week where I didn't have the pain and I was perfectly happy to do the training.
I'll just have to keep working on it until I can keep the pain away more often then it's present. I mean, I am putting a lot of strain on my muscles because of what I'm doing. So, I'm going to have to make sure that I take care of them as well. Eventually, I'll get a sports message and hopefully that will push me further along then what I can do for myself, or what my husband can do.
Well, I didn't really have much else to talk about. I am not posting my numbers this week, but I will next week. I have not been doing as well as I would have liked, but things will get better. I just have to get back into the routine.
Thank you all for reading, though. I appreciate it.
