My running distance and time was way down this week. My neck was really bothering me early on in the week. It was super tight and painful and the pain radiated into my shoulder, arm and back. I decided that it would be more beneficial for me to spend some time stretching and focusing on loosening up the muscle in my neck rather than running in pain. It helped tremendously and I was back on track by Thursday.

Weekly Workout Summary

I often hear that people don’t exercise because they just don’t have the time, they are too busy, etc., etc. While I agree that life is busy, especially at this time of year and with kids, there is always time to get a work out in if it’s important enough to you. Even with my husband being out of town, working full-time, and 3 young kids with their own activities 4 nights per week, I still found time to train.
