Is a very, very busy week.
First, update on the calf issue- it has been formally diagnosed as medial gastroc/soleus strain- so rest, ice, and physical therapy are on the docket for treatment.
I took today OFF from working out, so that later this week I can (hopefully) get some miles in.
This weekend I stuck to the arc trainer- Saturday I did an hour, level 10 (highest setting), cardio program. I followed that up with 100 squats, 50 lunges per side, and some abs. I had a ton of energy, since I slept in until 9, blogged until 10 and got to the gym at the crack of 11. Whew!
Sunday I did the same program on the arc trainer as Saturday and followed it up with a power yoga class. Wow- I am not only not very flexible, but there are some muscle groups I definitely ignore frequently. My forearms are sore today?
As I said, today is a freebie. I worked late after getting back from the doctor and chose getting home in time for dinner over 9PM dinner. It happens every so often!
For the rest of the week:
60 min non impact cardio + muscle pump
Try running (treadmill)- or 80 min cardio + abs/stretch
Thanksgiving run with mom! WHEEEEEEEE!
If my calf is doing better, a longer run with mom. Last time we did a LR together we did 11 miles. We’ll see what our energy/my calf brings for Friday.
AND- Sneak peaks for recipes/food posts coming later:
