A workout happened yesterday afternoon. Success!
I did a cardio mash-up consisting of 20 minutes on the elliptical, a “fast” mile on the treadmill, and 20 minutes on the recumbent bike.
It’s been a hot minute since I’ve rocked a recumbent bike. I felt it in new places.
It would have been a good workout were it not for the recurrence of the dreaded numb left leg.
Every time I attempt to run “fast” on a treadmill my leg goes numb starting all the way up at my hip with an achy sort of pain, then with a tingle in the knee and a grande finale of a completely numb shin.
It doesn’t hurt per se, but it makes running very awkward because I don’t feel like I have full control of the leg. I’m hoping I can figure out the cause and stop it quickly. Any one have any tips??
Because I fueled for said workout with a day of bagels and ice cream (literally the only foods I ate before 5 p.m. – it happens on occasion) – I decided some green would work for dinner.
I’ve been all about the vegetables lately. This tends to happen to me in the Spring time. All I want is fruit, veggies and ice cream. I have no opposition to this.
I followed the salad up with a glorious night in with me, myself and I.
I really love spending time with me.
Seriously, I’m a good time.
I really don’t know that I’ll ever be able to share myself with a boyfriend.
That fabulousness isn’t for free.
Okay, that may be a bit overboard – but I really do need a good amount of alone time. When I go too long without it I start to feel off. It’s not necessarily conducive to a relationship, but I’ll deal with that when I have to I suppose.
I got to bed at a reasonable hour and got up for another short run this morning. I’m easing my way back into the running game with a little work on my form – but more about that later.
Now it’s off to the part-timer. Here I go! Have a good Saturday with your fabulous selves!
I know I’ve asked this like a million times, but seriously – does anyone have any numb leg insight?
