This week a lot of the daily moves were from PT – not sure that any of it is helping but I am running again so I will keep trying these things!
Sunday 12/7 – 45 single leg inner thigh raise with foot tap.
I’m supposed to be working on single leg moves while working on keeping my alignment straight. (Notice Hunter working in the background?? Nice, huh?!)
Monday 12/8 –45 plank (elbow) with knee in to leg lift. (right – left = 1 rep)
I haven’t done any planking in over 3 weeks so this was tough!!!
It was a running day!!! 7 miles in 55:50 followed by 1.5 easy miles.
Tuesday 12/9 – 45 back kicks.
After the first set of 45 I had to switch sides and do 45 more.
I did a DVD that I hadn’t done in a long time – Reebok Cardio Tone. This was just over an hour of cardio based toning – fun times!!!
Wednesday 12/10 – 45 medicine ball crunches with legs straight up and hands holding ball reaching to feet.
And, another day of running!!! 8 miles in 63:57 followed by 1.5 easy miles.
Thursday 12/11 – 45 single leg squat while on a step – push leg off ground down in front of step.
The left side wasn’t too bad! But, then I had to switch and do the move on my right leg (the one with all of the problems!!).
You can tell that I couldn’t go nearly as low on this side:(
I did a weight lifting DVD – Get Ripped & Chiseled. WOW!!! I haven’t lifted in over 3 weeks and I have been sore for the last 2 days! Love it!!!
Friday 12/12 – 45 front straight leg lifts with small band around ankle.
Part of the challenge on this is to stay straight (trying to work on my alignment). BTW – I noticed after the fact that I had my T-shirt on backwards – classy!!!
This was my 3rd running day of the week!! 6 miles in 48:00 minutes followed by 1.4 easy miles.
Saturday 12/13 – 45 back leg lift with band (my special therapy band:).
Still trying to work on balance with good alignment!
The rest of the day consisted of about 6 hours of shopping, a cello concert at the library, and a couple of hours of cleaning and ironing at the venue – not a true workout but lots of moving!!!
I’m not running the speeds or distances that I really want to run but I”m happy that I’ve been running again!!!
