Limited Mobility Workout Ideas??

Wednesday, March 05, 2014

Hello SP! I've been away for far too long. At least on the regular checking in and especially on the tracking. I've been pretty consistent with working out, though not as much running lately (I've kept up my streak and now stand at 103 weeks straight of 90+ minutes of cardio).

In that time, I haven't had any major illnesses or injuries that prevented me from working out, at least a little (even just a walk around the block). All was well.

Until this week.

I signed up to run on my company's team at a charity 5k on Saturday. I haven't been running as frequently, but I am still capable of running the distance. But then I didnít stretch afterward the way I know I should. (We had coordinated a place to meet up right by the finish line and it was very crowded so I was afraid to venture too far away, lest I lose everyone).

Last night, I was motivated to start my 10k training plan again. I hopped on the treadmill and I noticed my hip was bothering me. I was stubborn and didnít want to stop but eventually did. I tried stretching but I couldnít quite find the muscle that was bothering me Ė except unintentionally when I moved just right and then it hurt like no body's business.

My hip hurt so bad this morning that putting pressure on my leg was painful. In case youíre wondering, yes, that does make walking a challenge. Iíve had very minor hip problems before, but nothing like this (was solved with the stretching I didn't do... ). I don't think there's much I can do except wait it out.

But now I'm wondering -- how am I going to get my cardio in? I'm going to try a spin class at the gym tomorrow after work, but I'm dubious that I will be able to survive a whole class comfortably.

Any suggestions on what I can do over the next few weeks that doesnít involve running or jumping? Or standing really...

Thanks all!

    Check out You Tube for chair exercises and limited mobility exercises. There are a lot of them there. Coach Nicole has some on SP videos too.

Hope your hip feels better soon. WTG on the fitness streak.
