Recent Workouts (April 24th-May 3rd)

Since I’m not training for anything these days, I thought I would just post my workouts since my last check-in (which was when I talked about my race recovery).

Thursday 4/24: 3.71 miles easy and Runner’s Core DVD

Friday 4/25: 3 miles on treadmill, Body Pump (Sometimes its just easier to do a little run on the treadmill before and after the class, even though I will always prefer running outside)

Saturday 4/26: 6.44 miles and Runner’s Core DVD. I was planning to do 8 but just wasn’t feeling it, so I figured there was no reason to keep going.

I am also doing PT moves that my chiropractor has shown me 5 times a day. The goal is 20 repetitions each time, for a total of 100 a day. It’s tough to get it in that often but I have been trying my best. I usually do it once before my morning workout and once right after, and then as soon as I get home from work, and twice in the evening. He also wants me doing single leg balances for 15 seconds at a time for a total of about 10 minutes a day…some of them with my eyes closed.

I tried to take pictures to demonstrate…it was really difficult:

You lift your knee slightly above your hip, slightly bend your standing leg, lean forward slightly and squeeze your abs and standing glute. This is really hard for me to do with my eyes closed!

So that’s what I’ve been up to lately. I hope everyone has a great weekend!

What kind of workouts have you been doing lately?

  1. You’re getting some good variety in – I definitely need to learn to do more than just run when I’m not recovering! I’m back running again, and it feels amazing! Need to stay healthy this time though (which I think is my goal always, but this time I really will focus on recovery all season long!)

    • It can be a really difficult balance! Luckily I enjoy doing other things like body pump and yoga. For me the hardest part is running less. Especially in the summer when its light out for so long! I’m glad you are running again, and it sounds like you are on the right track to stay healthy!
