Two Races – Training Recap Week 8

I feel like I’m falling apart. Last week the whole week was a write-off. I managed to do something to my upper body on my left side (yes, somehow it’s always the left!) and spent all week trying to feel better through stretching, foam rolling, lying on a lacrosse ball, applying heat, and finally getting a massage on  Thursday. It was still sore when I woke up Friday morning so I applied heat at my desk and sat with a lacrosse ball behind my shoulder blade one more time, rested over the weekend, and it seemed to do the trick.

By mid-week I feel like my mental health had taken a hit. I don’t know if it was because I was hormonal, in pain, or I missed working out, but I felt very cranky and agitated. It’s interesting how things that seem so small can have such a big impact on your health and wellness.
