As you’ve noticed, I get writer’s block quite a bit.
I think I mentioned previously that I’ve been dealing with a knee and IT band injury since the end of June. So not HardBody workouts since then. I’ve been concentrating on yoga and pilates. I was able to make many workouts while on my 2 week vacation; however, post vacation I’ve been making it about 2 times per week due to my schedule.
I have re-introduced walking thanks to the UP by Jawbone – gotta keep up with my teammates with the number of steps I’m doing!
The exercises I’ve been doing for my IT band have really helped – so much so I don’t need to go back to the doc unless I have a problem. He still wants me to focus more on my upper body and core during workouts.
Last night was my first time back to a Hard Body workout since June. I’ll be honest I was a little nervous. I wasn’t sure if I would have limitations and I really didn’t want to re-injure anything, because I really missed these workouts (lots of sweat – as the saying goes ‘fat crying’!). I have to say I felt great – it was like riding a bike. I modified some exercises and I got a good sweat in. I noticed I was able to do some exercises much better than before – I give all the props to yoga and pilates.
Fall is super busy for me personally and with work so now I have to figure out how to get all of the things I enjoy – HardBody, Walking (keeping those steps up is so important), Yoga and Pilates in my schedule weekly (and being consistent) since weekends are out for the next few weeks. I’m sure I’ll figure it out! 🙂
