I’m Baaaaack!

20 May

Well, almost. 

I’ve been biking, rehabilitating for this “IT Band Syndrome” and I’m feeling pretty ok.  Today I went on a 2 mile walk so I’m counting that as my return workout.  I guess it’s a long way from 13.1, but I’ll get back there!  Here’s my new favorite workout song: 

“My body tells me no, but I won’t quit, I want more”

So here goes! I plan to walk daily this week for a half hour each day.  I also biked today for a half hour, but that’s getting pretty damn boring.  

Edit: after being offered and accepting a position with Dtox, they failed to send me the necessary information for my start date. When I contacted them by phone my calls were ignored. I have never been on the receiving end of such a gross display of unprofessionalism in my life.


Weight Training

Nearly forgot to post, but today’s weight training day was rather successful.  Here’s what I’m doing, and it will be my routine for the week:

bridge on swiss ball: 30s

Rest: 15s

Lunge with Side Tilt: 60s

Rest: 20s

Then…Dumbbell Muscle Blaster. Everything in this one is 1 minute each:

3 Rounds

Dumbbell Chest Press

Dumbbell Bent Over Row


DB Push Press

Although the arm workout felt like a lot at the time, the only thing hurting now are my glutes and quads!  I ache, I ache.  Already dreading the treadmill tomorrow, so I’m trying to get up at 6 for a morning run.  We’ll see, I’m the opposite of a morning person!
