This week has been a much stronger week of workouts! I’m hoping to start getting in a few mega runs soon!!!
Sunday 1/11 – 45 supine rolls, great for your core and also your upper back.
I got in a 6 mile run (45:01) at a faster pace than I had been running for awhile followed by an easy mile.
Monday 1/12 – 45 double knee in to a full body extension with arms extended.
I did a DVD that I don’t do often but it really is a good one – MashUp Conditioning. This DVD has 7 different workouts (called Tempos) that are 15 minutes each. Each segment has strength, HIIT, core. I did Tempos 5,6 and 7.
Tuesday 1/13 – 45 plies with heels up.
I always love the feeling in my inner thighs when I do plies!!!
I ran 10 miles!!! (75:33) I finished off the workout with an easy mile.
After I did 45 like that and had shaky legs, I switched the whole pattern for another set!!
Fun move – and my heart rate really got up since it is all lower body work.
I did one of my 10 Minute Solution DVDs – Tone Trouble Zones. This workout uses a band –
and is very effective.
I also walked 2.45 miles with a 10% incline (had some DVRed shows to catch up on!!).
YIKES!! This move was hard!! Probably why my hamstrings are sore today (2 days later!!).
This was another day of running – 8 miles in 59:37 followed by 1.75 easy miles.
Friday 1/16 – 45 side leg abduction with band.
I love moves like this because while it works the hip of the leg lifting, the standing leg also starts shaking!!!
I don’t know if you can tell but while I lifted my leg I also pulled on the band for some extra resistance.
I did Denise Austin’s Personal Training System. This is a full body workout with about 20 minutes of cardio followed by 10 minutes of lower body, 10 minutes upper body, 10 minutes core and 10 minutes of stretching.
Saturday 1/17 – 45 bow lifts.
Pretty sure this is the first time I’ve ever done any of the pictures in our bedroom – I have to stay out of the light today and this room is one of the best choices.
Overall this was a really good week of workouts. I’m still incorporating a lot of the moves from physical therapy into my workouts – just amping them up a little. And, my running speed is starting to pick back up!! Now I think I’m ready to slowly increase my mileage again!!
