Happy Tuesday! I had meant to post days and days ago, but it’s just been one of those busy weeks where real life gets in the way of blogging!
More than that, I’m very happy to report that I’m already making moves on my 2014 Resolutions. Here’s what I’ve been working on thus far:
Tuesday 12/31: Boot Camp was canceled, so I just did a lunchtime run with 1.55 miles on the treadmill at a much quicker pace. Felt pretty good.
Thursday 1/2: Hip strengthening first thing in the morning. I felt extremely guilty because I was too hungover tired to work out on New Year’s Day. Also had Boot Camp Class, which was unlike our usual set up and involved doing repeated rotations of 20 light reps on the weight machines working biceps, triceps, quads, hamstrings, chest and abs. I did a little elliptical work and exercise bike work too, about a mile each.
Friday 1/3: I may have just done a little hip work.
Saturday 1/4: 3.95 miles out in the frigid cold with B and the Nike+ watch. I wish I took pictures…we saw people cross country skiing and kids sledding down snow covered hills! Both knees felt crummy, and I foam rolled once I got home.
Unfortunately now my knees are feeling worse. They felt TERRIBLE over the weekend, but thankfully I’ve passed that storm. I’m now convinced that I did something to my left knee during Boot Camp….most likely some botched squats. I hate having the reputation of being injury-prone…ugh, why me?
How was your week of fitness? Are you carrying out on your New Year’s Resolutions? Do you have any recommendations for dealing with knee pain besides taking painkillers? Leave a comment!
