Fitness Friday...Easing Back Into It!

So it's been a few weeks since I've done a Fitness Friday post. Yes there's a reason for that....I've been trying to rest and recover from my knee injury. I've been seeing Dr. Justin twice a week for treatment and he has helped me so much! I am so happy to report that for the first time in two weeks I have zero pain in my knee! Yay!!! I recommend Dr. Justin for ALL sports injuries, back pain, neck pain, etc. He is awesome! From now on I will be going to him for any aches and pains that occur (which hopefully won't happen too often).

While recovering I have continued to do my #plankaday. I've also biked a few times at the gym (with Dr. Justin's permission) and started the 100 pushups program again. So even though I haven't been able to run I have been doing what I can. I definitely didn't want to become a couch potato lol!

So here are my workouts for this week (although they aren't much at least it's something).

  • Saturday- #plankaday 1:00, walked 2 miles at the Santa Run
  • Monday- #plankaday 1:26, 12 pushups 
  • Tuesday- #plankaday 1:00
  • Wednesday- #plankaday 1:35, 45 minutes on the recumbant bike, 16 pushups
  • Thursday- #plankaday 1:32
  • Friday- #plankaday 1:00, 22 pushups

So there it is! Not pretty but not bad for someone recovering from an injury! Tomorrow I have my last long run for marathon training before tapering. I will be running/walking (per Dr. Justin's orders) 20 miles. Hopefully the knee is going to do just as well as it did for the half last Sunday! And hopefully I will get my endurance back quickly!

QOTD: What is your favorite strength training move?
