It doesn’t seem like time off is doing much to help with my injury — but it isn’t getting worse, so that’s good right?
I’m doing everything I can to try to train without aggravating it. The good news is it is forcing me to do some new things and I’ll probably end up in better shape overall — if not better running shape.
Today I have already logged:
- 5 easy treadmill miles
- Pool workout: 100 easy, 4×25 kickboard, 100 easy, 2×25 pull-buoy, 100 easy, 2×25 pull-buoy, 100 easy cooldown. (I like saying “easy” like I swim any other way.)
- 274 push-ups.
Tonight Philip and I take our “test” to start the pull-up challenge. I hope I can do even one after all this today.
Beyond all that, this week looks like this:
Mon: 5 easy miles
Tues: Swim, 260 push-ups
Wed: Taught a spin class
Thurs: 5 easy, swim workout, 274 push-ups, plan to do pull-ups tonight (maybe I should say pull-up, singular?)
Fri: Plan is to run 7-10 miles in the morning, and I teach a spin class at noon
Sat: Plan is weights, push-ups, pool run or swim workout
Sun: Rest, plus pull-ups
I feel like I am triathlon training again. The variety has been fun, so I’ll focus on that instead of all the miles I’m not running.
Happy running, spinning and swimming.
