I'm like that mid-month too Kinsey - once period arrives it's a flipping relief!!
Absolutely no housework being done - main point was some time to get on top of all my Pilates paperwork and come up with a business plan for future too along with planning a few classes. Also need to do some financial sorting, once thing all these ups and downs have made clear to me is that I have very little access to all the family finances - ie the internet banking etc, especially seeing as the inheritance I got from my great aunt is currently sitting in our mortgage account, but it certainly isn't meant to be staying there!!
stretching too - hamstrings and quads, and rollering round those areas as well. I saw a top quality sports masseur a couple of months ago and he advised to not necessarily roller the IT band itself but focus in on hamstring, quads and also the TFL which sits at top underneath the hipbone. If you keep these areas loosened then the IT band is more flexible
and yesterday I RAN a whole 8 miles, met up with my old running buddy (my other male running buddy) from when I lived South. Was great to catch up and I said could we do something short and gentle - ha ha ha ... was great running round Frensham Ponds and through my old running routes though. Could feel niggles but nothing too drastic so fingers crossed. Off out to brave the gale that seems to be gusting outside in a moment for a very easy 3-4 I think. And then I need to decide what to have for tea and plan my day tomorrow to make the most of being ON MY OWN
