Weekly Wrap-up May 19th-25th

Overall a great week. I am annoyed that my foot isn't completely better yet, but I think it's on it's way.

Total Miles Run: 14!

Monday:  Yoga

We did a lot of work with the yoga tune-up balls in the class and it felt soooo good. 

Tuesday: 4 Mile Run

Longest run since my foot went wonky, which was so much fun.

Wednesday: 3 Mile Run and Strength

I ran .75 miles then worked out with my trainer. Her routine this day was ab-heavy. Holy god. It was so hard. I was sure I would die. But you know what? I thought I would be so sore the next day, but I wasn't at all! I guess I really am getting stronger, even in my abs. 

Thursday: Rest

Friday: 4 Mile Run and Strength

A simple early-morning run, it was okay. I hate running first thing on an empty stomach because I feel like I have no energy. Little twinges in my foot made me wonder if things were okay down there and I iced it when I got home. I also followed up the run with a short-ish circuit of strength exercises. Lots of abs, some squats and glute work, a little upper body stuff. 

Saturday: Strength

I did one of my workouts that requires a lot of balance. If you are ever looking to take a simple exercise further, like a bicep curl, do it balancing on one leg, or kneeling/standing on a bosu ball. I also had work with my exercise band, which I looped around the rail of my deck, and did a bunch of upper body work on one leg. The good news is that I am getting better at balancing!  

Sunday: 3 Mile Run and Ab Work

I did one round of the ab workout I did with my trainer on Wednesday and then headed out for 3 miles. To be honest, I didn't know what my foot was going to do. After my run on Friday I was feeling worried, as it was pretty achy. But zero pain on the run today, and I was paying close attention and was ready to turn back if needed. I ended up finding a trail to do about 1/2 of a mile on and it was so much fun! I need to make more of an effort to run on trails.
