I figured I would try to get back into writing weekly recaps as I’m recovering from this silly foot injury. It’s always helpful to have these documented so I can look back on my progression. This will be a quick post; I didn’t take any pictures last week and I guess there’s not a whole lot to say about these workouts!
Last weekend I was still mostly resting my foot, but on Monday I started adding some walks in. I ended the week with a few minutes of running, so now I wait and see how my foot responds to that. I’ve also been focusing on stretching/rolling my calves and feet and doing foot and ankle exercises as well as core work (including hips and glutes).
Monday: 20 minute walk
Tuesday: Strength training: legs and core
Wednesday: Strength training: arms and back
Thursday: 30 minutes yoga, 10 minute walk
Friday: Pure Barre Tone in 10 (Full Body/Thighs and Seat)
Saturday: 35 minute walk with running intervals (10 minutes of running total, each interval 2-3 minutes), Strength training: legs and core
To be honest I didn’t mind not running as much this week with how gross and humid it was! I felt like I started sweating every time I even stepped outside. However, running for just those few minutes on Saturday felt great (although a bit awkward, as it always does after some time off) and made me excited to ease back into it again. Crossing my fingers that I am on the road to recovery- for real this time!
Has it been really humid this week where you live? Has it impacted your running?
How do you ease back into running after time off?
