It got cold here....again. And I hung up my running shoes...again.
After hearing back from my PT friend, she told me that I supinate like crazy. She also told me that I should hold off on running until all my pain is gone. When I posted my run on Thursday, I was pain free. The pain, if you read my post, didn't come back until about half-way through the run. I decided to rest it this weekend and was hoping to get out for a run today.
I wussed out on the run because of the cold. I did however put in my new workout DVD...No More Trouble Zones by Jillian Michaels. The ladies in my WW group keep talking about her 30-day shred. They also complain about how hard it is. I wasn't sure I wanted to spend money on a workout DVD that would end up collecting dust in our baskets, but her DVDs were only $10 at Target. I couldn't resist. That is how I settled on this one.
I did the workout for the first time on Friday with my sister. I didn't use weights because I couldn't find them. Actually, they were in a box in the basement and I was just too lazy to walk down the stairs to get them. Anyway, she kicked my ass. I had hopes for a run on Saturday, but I could barely get out of bed that morning, so I scratched it. The soreness went away yesterday afternoon and I dragged my ass out of bed to do it this morning. I also dragged my ass down the stairs to get the weights :)
I am so glad I bought it. I can really feel my "trouble zones" being worked. For those of you interested in trying it, there are a lot of squats. You pretty much end up squatting forward, backwards, and inside out! Everything from my waist down hurts! I hate DVDs that work a lot of abs from a crunch position because I cannot do a proper crunch to save my life. This DVD had just enough abs. My neck is thankful for that.
Overall, a good workout. I kept myself moving this weekend with going outside :) And I also got up and did Wii Yoga before the institute on Friday morning. Points for me! Literally....activity points for WW :)
Any bets on which day I will drag my ass outside to run this week?
