I can’t believe it’s time for another recap again! This week flew by with just getting back from Missouri on Sunday and getting back into the swing of things. Luckily I did keep track of my workouts this week, because everything is a blur right now!
Monday: 45 minutes spinning and core/glute work
I was off from work and ended up watching part of the Boston Marathon on my iPad during the bike ride! It definitely helped to pass the time.
Tuesday: 1 hour total body workout
I used the TRX for alot of the exercises. It’s always a good way to change things ups!
Wednesday: AM: 20 minute walk and core work PM: 1 hour Yoga
I was slow getting ready for my workout in the morning, and it was colder outside than I expected! You also don’t warm up as quickly when you’re walking vs running. After work I went to yoga. It was a good class but I got home after 7 which feels so late to me (I go to bed at like 8:30).
Thursday: 30 minutes spinning and mobility work
I had ordered the Runner’s World “Run and 10” DVD and it came on Wednesday. So on Thursday morning I tried my first 10 minute workout focused on mobility. I liked it, but it’s a little odd (or maybe the guy leading the workout is a little odd). I don’t really know how to explain it. I’ll share more as I do more of the workouts.
Friday: 15 minutes spinning, 10 minutes core, 10 minutes hips
I tried two more of the 10 minute workouts: core and hips. I was planning to walk, but when I got outside it was pouring rain, so I hopped on the bike instead.
Saturday: Bike and Strength Intervals
It was another rainy morning so I stayed indoors. I did a variation of my Cardio and Strength Interval Workout which is always fun. I used the stability ball at the end. You know those exercises where you lay on the floor and pass the ball from your feet to your hands? I have no idea what it’s really called, but I definitely felt it!
Sunday: 20 minutes stability work and mobility
I did the 10 minute stability workout on the Run and 10 DVD and then a few of my own mobility exercises just to get in some movement. We had to make a quick trip out of town for a night and left Sunday morning and are coming back tonight (Monday).
Well, I still don’t have my orthotics so I didn’t run at all this week. It’s easier to deal with when the weather is rainy. Besides, it was a crazy busy week and I had plenty of other workouts to keep me busy. I just keep telling myself I want to focus on getting healthy and strong now so I can start adjusting to the orthotics and then make a successful return to running. I don’t think a little running here or there will hurt the situation, but I figure less is better at this point.

Is it hard for you to adjust back from being away?
Do you find it easier to take time off running if you are busy (with life and other workouts)?
Anyone else have the Run and 10 DVD?
