Therapy Moves (12/7 – 12/13)

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.

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!!!

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!!!

Happy Saturday!

Kim
