Maybe I Can

Thursday, October 03, 2013

126.2 this morning, that's down .4 from yesterday after a high sodium day. I'm excited about maintaining in the 126 range. That is now 6 days. Maybe I can do this!! We'll see. Too early to really get excited about it.

Ran-walked-ran a little over 5 miles this morning in a little over one hour. Enjoyed the easy run thoroughly.

Have not yet successfully gotten back into the strength training routine. Trying to do core exercises without stressing my sore left hand - sit ups, back extensions, ab machine (without holding on) but no planks and no pull downs. Not sure if I need to go to the doctor or not, but I know I can't do push ups even modified nor any of the arm machines at the gym. All would stress my hand. Guess working the arms will just have to wait. Still have just a whisper of something not right in the left glute, too. I really do have a lot of health I'm grateful for, but I've got some limits, too. So glad I can run!!! Will try to get the exercise I need around the limitations.

    So glad you have some form of exercise you can fully enjoy -that is so precious to have that ability! Trying is not an option for core exercises -there are so many effective ones that do not use your hands -in fact the bicycle crunch is considered one of the most effective -laying on back, put legs in table top position, the crunch to one leg at a time while scissoring the legs -Sparkpeople has a demo of this and others. Another effective one is lying on your back put both legs straight up in the air at an 90 degree angle, then lift bum up while not rocking the legs back and forth -so lift straight up and down. As I cannot use my hands and can never do planks and push ups, I have to find alternatives and there are always some out there -no excuses!

    If the hand keeps bothering you get it checked out so you don't really injure it.

    Yay for a fun easy run :-)
You could always do planks resting on your elbows instead....just a thought.
