I wasn't sure I was going to get in a post today, but I just love these two ladies & wanted to join in their link up... & its a good way for me to keep track of my weekly workouts & whatnots... so here we go
Monday - Start Week 4 in C25K
Got to take it outside & Ricky & Harvey joined me... though the humidity got to Harvey & my last lap, Ricky put him in the car with the AC on. Don't want my dog knocking out.
Got in 1.82 miles in 31:40 #slowturtle
Tuesday - Upper Fix
This is my favorite 21 Day fix workout - I think because I have no upper body strength. I need all the arm work I can get. its a fine line because with my bicep tendon all jacked up after all these years, it still hurts if I tweak it just the smallest wrong way. But I keep PRESSING ON!
Wednesday - C25K Week 4 Day 2
|Me in denial of my back aching|
I actually felt so much better on this run, breathing wise. I didn't feel like I was going to die if I didn't stop soon. That was encouraging.
Not so encouraging? My low back started aching again. No no no no no no no no no!!
2.00 miles 34:l8
Thursday - Pilates Fix
I hadn't done this one in awhile, mainly because I feel like I need to work up a sweat to get a workout & while this does have its moments, I only burn about 175 calories. I don't like that. But my abs need to stay in check, so it was done.
& the bad thing, I think this really twirked my back even more. I was in pretty good pain with my low back all night long. Pull out the BioFreeze... here we go again folks.
Friday - Rest Day
Saturday / Sunday - Not the usual
I was supposed to do Week 4 Day 3 of C25K... but I was hiking all day long with 24 kids at our youth ministry camp retreat weekend. I seriously was on my feet all day long, so while no workout happened, I probably got the most calorie burn of the week on this day. I'll take those kind of days.
|See, even upper body work was involved|
So this week, I'm supposed to move onto c25k week 5... but just going to see how it goes tonight with my low back. I don't want to get back into miserable pain. Long runs just may not be my thing. I may have to always do a lower run/walk combo. I'm OK with that.
I'm turning very exercise zen lately...
I blame the pilates.
What was your favorite workout of the week?
