Running, Biking, Strength Training, Stretching & Physical Therapy

Thursday, November 01, 2012

Just a quick recap of what I've been up to:

emoticon I'm faithfully running now! I ran a little over 20 miles last week and should do the same this week. I just have to get that long run done tomorrow.!

emoticon I've been spinning a couple of times in past 2-3 weeks. And, I did a quick 30 minute ride today. My running group is starting a coached riding group next week. WooHoo! We'll meet only one time a week, but will also learn about bike maintenance, group riding, etc. I can't wait!!

emoticon I'm doing pretty well with strength training. I signed up to use the machines at the Y several weeks ago and am using them about once a week after one of my shorter runs.

emoticon I've been stretching really well! Especially after my long runs, since they are usually on the treadmill, I sometimes spend 20 minutes stretching!

emoticon And, physical therapy for my bulging disc is going really well. I haven't had any more foot tingling/numbness (from pressure on the nerve) and my back is doing better. I have lots of places - not just in my back - that are too tight or too weak so I'm working on that. It will help my fitness all around!

    Kudos to all your efforts! Especially the PT for bulging worked wonders for me and I still use some of those moves to keep it under control. Woo hoo's to Spinning & group rides! What a blast they are! :-)

    Brava! That stretching will prevent a lot of DOMS after a race! I know you're feeling good from that work you've put it!

    Keep up the great work! You are an inspiration to me with the variety in your program. I've added elliptical training to my bike/run routines.
