For my 43 today, I used a move from Ab Ripper X (one of the P90X programs). I did the “scissor” move. Lay on your back with your left leg extended a few inches off the floor and your right leg pointed straight up.
Hold this for a 5-count then smoothly switch leg positions and hold again.
Anyway, I did the scissor move to work my abs (hip flexors, too) as my 43 today.
BTW – if you look really closely at my shirt you can see it is from a race on March 27, 1993!!! The Azalea Trail Run in Mobile, AL – during my grad school days. Doesn’t everyone have shirts that are almost 20 years old???
I’ve already mentioned (more than once) that I LOVE my treadmill!!!
I did a hard 10 miles at a 1.5 % incline followed by a much easier 2 miles with steeper incline (maxing at 30%) for a total of 93:00 minutes.
So, I’m not sure how I feel about the compression socks. I have had them on for about 2.5 hours (including the run) and they completely cut into the top part of my calf. I don’t think I could go up a size because the heel fit is good and they are almost too long as it is. Anyone else have this problem with compression socks?
little lot stressed right now. I have a huge test tomorrow (ACE Personal Trainer certification) and I don’t feel remotely prepared. The sad part is, I used to know all of this stuff (and I’ve done this test before – I just let my certification completely lapse so I have to start over). My masters is in Sports Medicine – unfortunately that was almost 20 years ago and I’ve used very little of that information in the past 15+ years. I spent hours studying yesterday and will do the same again today but there is so much to learn and remember!!
I try not to get stressed about things but sometimes – WHEW!!! Last night I didn’t think I would ever fall asleep – I kept thinking and thinking and thinking… I figured a good hard run would help clear my head (so I can muddle it again in a few minutes!).
How do you cope with stress?
Happy Wednesday! (I’m off to study!)
