Weekly Workout Recap Wednesday

So began week five…a week where I thought running would be possible in short durations (apparently not).  It’s also the beginning of a new month–can you believe it’s February already?  This week’s goal was all about trying to run a five minute, pain free segment a few times, which I guess was technically a success, despite the fact that it was short lived. I also wanted to get back into my whole 30/30/30 drill, but I kicked it up a notch with a 40/40/40/40 variation where I included jumping jacks…or, well, will include jumping jacks when my Achilles lets me.  In the meantime, I have replaced jacks with calf raises.

Jan 29:

  • Stationary Bike 45 minutes
  • Super slow run 5 minutes (.49 miles) NO PAIN AGAIN!!! YEAH!!!!!
  • Hot Hatha 60 minutes

Jan 30:

  • Bike workout got hijacked by a run club member who wanted some advice for her runs
  • Run 8 minutes (0.91 miles).  No pain, but a little tightness.

Jan 31:

  • Nothing.  Apparently running 8 minutes last night was too much for my Achilles.  Pain, pain, pain.  #frustrated

Feb 1:

  • 45 minutes stationary bike
  • 40/40/40/40
  • stretching/rolling/ice –lots of pain today

Feb 2:

Feb 3: Run Club!!!

  • 40 minutes stationary bike
  • 40/40/40/40
  • stretching/rolling/ice (not as much pain today)

Feb 4:

  • 45 minutes on the stationary bike (my butt is so sore!)
  • 40/40/40/40
  • stretching/rolling/ice (no pain at all today except when doing my rehab exercises)

Total Miles for the week: 1.4 miles

Total Miles for the year: 56.12

High Moment of the Week: Workout out with an injured Run Club member on the stationary bikes three days in a row–was very motivating for both of us.

Goal for moving forward: Keep my sanity until next Wednesday (Feb 12) when I will try running again and see if I have to go back to the doctor.

Do you have a goal for the week ahead?
