Tuesday AM: IT Band/Shin Splint rehab exercises
Tuesday PM: 30 minutes elliptical- Resistance program 1
Thursday: 45 minutes of stretching. (I foam roll and stretch nearly every day, but it usually only takes about 15 minutes. Today I did a lot more focused stretching than usual. I'm going to try to spend one night doing this every week for 45- 1 hour).
Friday: 30 min. elliptical- Resistance program 3, walk 1 mile on 4.0 on the treadmill
Saturday AM: Nike Training Club App- Arm definer, 15 minutes. Holy crap. Kicked my butt. My arms have been SO SORE.
Saturday PM: 30 minutes elliptical- Resistance program 4, and walk 2 miles at 4.2 on the treadmill
After a week of rest I no longer feel pain in my shins while I'm resting or walking around. That is good news!
Highlight: I've been doing the elliptical/treadmill walks with my friend Audra. She took last year off because she had the cutest baby girl EVER, but she is starting training again and will be running the Wasatch Back with me this year. I. LOVE. HER. She was my original
Last week's goal: Follow my PT's advice. No running. Check!
This week's goal: Go to bed before 11PM every night. I'm a night owl and mornings have been killing me. I know that in order to stay in tip top shape I need to get adequate rest. That means I need to knock it off and get my butt in bed earlier.
Do you spend any time stretching every week? Do you have a special place in your heart for your training partners?
