Last Week’s Workouts

Last week's workouts | happyfitmama.com

Last week’s workouts were a mix of strength, running (YES!!), yoga and cross training.  The only thing I missed was a day of pool running.  Getting in the pool when it’s early in the morning and dark, isn’t enticing.

Physical therapy – My PT and his student intern decided they wanted to really test my limits.  My glutes were on fire and were hurting for days after.  It was the kind of soreness that I couldn’t even sit on the floor comfortably.

Wednesday

45 minutes recumbent bike

Easy stretching and yoga

My glutes were hurting big time after working them hard on Monday and then getting beat up on Tuesday in PT. I opted for easy movement to loosen things up rather than a big workout at the gym.

 

Thursday

Morning Flow Yoga at Bending Bodhi

Run – Dynamic warm up, mobility work followed by 5 min walk, run 20 min, walk 2, run 10 min, walk 5 min c/d

This was my first run testing out my new Epson ProSense 307.  I’ll be doing a review this week but I think you guys need to put this GPS watch on your list if you are looking for a new one.  It does everything and has the longest battery life of any GPS on the market.  And Meb wears one so that’s pretty darn cool too.

Friday

45 minutes Arc Trainer

40 minutes strength training

Barbell bench press

Reverse lunge cable rows

Lat pulldown

Single leg balance ball toss and catch

KB plank rows

Cable chest fly

Monster walks with band

Plank series (forearm front, side, elbow to knee)

Saturday

Another return to running gain!  I did a dynamic warm up, hip and ankle mobility work before heading out for my run.  This was the first run on the schedule that did not involve a walk break.

5 minutes walk, 25 minutes RUN (woohoo!), 5 min walk c/d

When it’s been months since you ran, you celebrate 25 minutes of straight running in a big way.  It’s easy to look back at pre-injury me and see that 25 minutes of running was considered a warm up.  There’s no looking back.  I’m moving forward, so that’s the direction I’m looking.

Notice the steam coming off my head? It may have only been 23 degrees but I was coming in hot. Lol!

Sunday

A semi rest day except for attending Morning Flow Yoga at Bending Bodhi.  The class was a mix of heart openers, Sun A and B and everyone’s favorite, Pigeon.  I walked out of class feeling taller and more energized.

  1. So glad you are back to running! I actually love when my glutes get sore, since thats one area that likes to get lazy. Awesome week of workouts!

  2. Great job with your workouts, I love that you share your strength routines!
    And that watch is beautiful…and the fact that Meb wears it makes me want it too! Enjoy your day :)

  3. Yay for running again! I’m happy to read about that. I love the steam pic :) It’s funny how hot one can get even on a 23 degree day :)

    Thanks for linking up with Jess and me!

  4. Ha! I love how you captured the steam coming off your head! 25 minutes of solid running is fantastic! As a fellow (previously and too often) injured runner, it is absolutely cause for big celebration. Thanks for linking!
