Running is being put on a PAUSE!

Hello Everyone!

I am sorry I have not been updating you guys on runs. Mainly because there have not been any. Because of my hip injury I have made the executive decision to take a break and let the hip heal/strengthen it until I can get the proper treatment for it going again.

SO WHAT AM I DOING INSTEAD???

Great question mystery blogger! I have been doing more home workouts, which consist of squats, bridges and lunges. I am also incorporating resistance bands to help make things a little harder. Although I am really sad that I will not be going out for runs anymore, I can honestly say that I have come to piece with this. In a way, I am also thinking that this could not have happened at a better time. With everyone being quarantined and not having many options for things to do I feel like this was a sign for me to stop running all the time and to start working on my conditioning more. So I will listen to the running gods and get to work!

One cool new thing that I have been trying out are cold baths. I basically fill my tub with cold water and sit in it for 15mins. It is actually such a cool feeling because you het to see how your body adapts to this quite uncomfortable situation so that you actually start to normalize it within maybe 5mins. The rest gets quite easy as I just sit there and focus on my breathing. I am doing this to hopefully help out my hip as well as strengthen my mind. Because being home all day has really made me a little to comfortable I must say so it is good to change things up. If any of you are doing anything during your quarantine and do not mind sharing I would love to hear!

As always thank you for reading and for those of you who are still going on runs, HAPPY RUNNING! (I am very jealous)
