Hi everyone! Jumping in today to another edition of the Weekly Wrap with Hoho and Wendy. This week was all about physical therapy and yoga. In fact, I have found myself on a little yoga streak this week. Wasn’t planned, just kind of happened and I am loving it. Here’s a snap shot of my week.
Weekly Wrap Yoga Streak
Sunday- 5 mile run + Vinyasa yoga
Achilles area annoying me during my run and had to take a few walk breaks to stretch it out. Day 2 of my yoga streak. Love yoga on the same day as a run.
Monday- 30 min elliptical + 60 m strength training + hot yoga class
After missing my workouts last week with travel, felt good to get back to my strength training.
Tuesday- 4 mile run + Vinyasa yoga 60 m + PT evaluation
Finished our run right ahead of some huge storms. Had to walk quite a bit because of my achilles. Did a full evaluation with the PT to get an official diagnosis on the achilles strain. It is minor but I have work to do. I can keep running yay! I will start doing 4:1 intervals.
Wednesday-30 m soft tissue work at PT + strength training + restorative yoga
Busy day! Had my torture session for my calf with the sports massage therapist in the morning then Strength training. Since my hubs was out that night, I hit up a restorative yoga class. The yoga streak continues!
Thursday- 4 mile run + Vinyasa yoga
Per the PT, started using 4:1 intervals and my run went so much better. No real pain in the achilles=happy runner girl. It did not hurt that we had the most gorgeous running day with cool temps and low humidity. Fall-I am coming for you. I am also loving my new Shady Rays glasses. I received a pair to try out from my association with Bib Rave. See my review here.
Friday- Physical therapy + soft tissue massage of calf + 2 mile walk
Sort of a day off. Did a full run evaluation with the PT including video analysis. Seeing myself run in slow motion on a treadmill was not pretty. I can really see why my calf is so tight. I will be sharing more about what I learned and how I am going to address it in a few weeks. I left with a schedule of exercises to do. I need to fire up those Glutes of mine ASAP.
Saturday- 4.5 mile run + Yoga stretch class
Happy to have had a pain free run today for the first time in ages. The intervals seem to really help so I will keep doing those. The yoga streak continued with a post run Yoga stretch class. Kind of liking all of this yoga!
Sunday- on the plan swimming and yoga of course
