Learn from your trainer

The message of the day: learn from your trainer. I have been battling injuries left and right ever since I ran Boston last year (2014). Why? Well, I never let myself heal. Why? Because… well.. I didn’t want to gain weight. How silly??? I know. It’s true though. The other reason is that I am obsessed with running. I haven’t run regularly in so long. I definitely long for that post-run zen feeling, sweaty everywhere, heart rate up, just that all-round good feeling. The one thing I don’t miss is peeing myself. I have major incontinence from having gigantic babies, so needless to say I definitely don’t miss peeing while running. The lesson is, when your doctor, or whomever, tell you to take a break and rest – DO IT! Or else you will end up having injury after injury. On the upside, you may start enjoying a new sport or get really buff. I think I am slowly and slightly doing both right now.

Here’s my weekly fitness plan, since I can’t run:

Monday: Eliptical – 45 min, incline bench press & fly with legs/feet off at 90 degree angle, lat pull-down, db row OR TRX body row, stability ball roll-ins X3 sets

Tuesday: 5 min row machine, 10 row machine pike (feet on seat) x4. Bicep Curls using 20lb weights, tricep press (cable) 20 lbs. plus adduction and ball squeezes with crunches x3 sets

Wednesday: Bike ride – road or stationary 1-2 hrs in duration. Road cycling, I go out for over an hour and try to ride at a constant, hard effort. If I am on a stationary bike, I will do intervals for an hour

Thursday: Eliptical – 45 min, incline bench press & fly with legs/feet off at 90 degree angle, lat pull-down, db row OR TRX body row, stability ball roll-ins X3 sets

Friday: Bike ride – road or stationary 1-2 hrs in duration. Road cycling, I go out for over an hour and try to ride at a constant, hard effort. If I am on a stationary bike, I will do intervals for an hour

Saturday: whatever cardio I feel and then I do 5 dive bombers and 10 break dancers x3 sets

Sunday: I do whatever feels good. 🙂
