Monday was my first official day back into a fitness plan. I’m looking to start off by doing three days of running (it’s what I can do the most of right now with my injury) and two days of strength training.
So yesterday I hit the gym and did the circuit below 3 times with 15 seconds of rest in between each set and 30 seconds rest in between each circuit. I also did a five minute warm up and cool down on the tread mill at 6.0.
20 kettle bell squats
15 push ups
15 Elevated leg crunches (15 of each leg alternating)
This morning I woke up to do my first tracked run, 4:30am…….. Now I have run a couple times last week trying to feel it out. Most were short two mile runs with a 4 miler thrown in there. The runs where uncomfortable, it’s amazing how a weakened core can create havoc on your run. I did get 6 miles in this morning which I feel good about its been over 3 months since I’ve run that far. I definitely ran it slow but also felt pretty good through most of it. The results are below. I used Mapmyrun’s free app I think I need to look into a better tracker but it did the job.
