This week the workouts were wimpy and practically non-existent!!! I can’t remember the last time I’ve started January with so few days of working out.
Oh well, a little is better than zero!!!
Sunday 1/4 – 45 squat with one leg propped up to the side.
And, of course, I had to turn around and get the other side.
This move was also a nice hip opener.
I did an easy 5 mile run (40:30) followed by 1.25 super easy miles.
Monday 1/5 – 45 hops – front, back, out, in.
Quick and easy but better than nothing!!!
Tuesday 1/6 – 45 side running motion with one leg on a higher step.
I really did bring my knee up in more of a running motion – this was after the basketball game and I was ready for the day to be over!!!
I did the move with both legs on top (switched directions) but didn’t take a picture of my backside:).
Wednesday 1/7 – 45 side lying leg front and back (toe down in front and heel down in back).
And, don’t think I only worked one side –
By flipping the toes up and down, this move was a great one to work all parts of your hips!!!
Thursday 1/8 – 45 side knee lift with a side bend (band around ankles).
I counted a right – left as 1 rep for this move.
And, I’m thinking that 6 hours of putting up Christmas decorations including about 100 trips up and down the stairs should count as at least some sort of workout!!
I tried to keep this move a nice fluid move with my legs while my arms did a semi-circle as the went up and then down.
I actually ran – it was rough but better than nothing.
6 miles in 48:58 followed by 1.3 easy miles.
Saturday 1/10 – 45 chest press with leg abduction (band around ankles).
I liked this move since it worked so many large muscle groups!!!
I decided to try another workout – Cross Training for Fitness. I made it through 3 of the 15 minute sections before deciding I was done.
I have had a sore throat and sinus drainage all week which has hampered my workouts but I’m thinking that I’m at the point where I just need to suck it up and start pushing through!!! It’s amazing how quickly you can lose your current level of conditioning when you take some time off!
BTW – I do have on sweats/yoga pants/fleece and fuzzy socks in pretty much all the pictures – when it’s cold I live in this stuff. The minute I get home from any activity I put on my warm comfy clothes!!!
