Wild Workout & Training Update!

Hello friends!  It has been a little crazy and exhausting getting back into my workout routine!  I was still active on and off the last few weeks of 2015, but didn’t really get to the gym very much.  It felt SO good to be back last week!  I also got back into my training for the next half marathon that is on the books (March 5th)!
I am joining the Wild Workout link up with link up with Angelena Marie from  Angelena Marie: Happy, Healthy & Balanced , Michelle at Fruition Fitness  and Nicole from Fitful Focus and Annmarie from The Fit Foodie Mama

Seriously, if you love to run, want to run, or just want to learn more about running, go get these books! (I am just putting them out there because I have really enjoyed them…not benefiting in any way other than sharing the awesomeness!)

Another Wild Workout Wednesday!

Hello once again!  I know, 2 posts in 1 days, that isn’t something that I get to do much these days.
It is Wednesday and time for a workout report.  I realized late last night that I never did made an official plan for this last week, but it ended up working out ok.
Since my hip has been giving me issues I have been trying to focus on stretching more and using my lovely foam roller.  The other night I was done and the Hubs came to see what I was doing.  The foam roller had turned into a pillow and I was just laying on the floor.  He asked me what in the world I was doing. “Oh, just foam rolling!” Ha, he knew better and encouraged me to get back at it!

Last week we lost another family member, so things got a little off track.  Add in the hurricane, a LONG dr appt and visiting a friend in the hospital, and I am glad I actually got in a few workouts!
Speaking of the dr appt, overall it was ok.  He asked a lot of questions and took a LOT of blood! So hopefully I will get some answers soon!  I am sure there are still issues with my thyroid, and not that I want there to be any other issues, but there needs to be something else going on as to why I can not lose weight!  It has become really frustrating! Who am I kidding, it has been a frustration for a LONG time.  I am proud of myself for keeping on the right path and working out and eating healthy meals.  Even years into recovery it is tempting to shut down and not eat.  But I KNOW that is not the right thing to do, nor will it do anything to change myself for the better!

What I have been up to!
Thursday- Walk & foam roll
Friday- Walk and stretches
Saturday- Body pump, walk and stretches.  And a free Shower! Haha

 

Sunday- More walk and stretches
Monday- Body pump and stretches
Tuesday- 4.5 miles on the elliptical, .5 mile walk to/from the park with the kids, an hour of zumba and some stretches.  No wonder my legs are tired and sore today!
Wednesday- Zumba tonight and 20-30 min elliptical


What I am planning for this next week!
Thursday- Try to walk/jog 3-4 miles
Friday- Piyo and 2 miles
Saturday- Body Pump or rest & LOTS of stretching and foam rolling!
Sunday- Race- was supposed to do the 10 miles, but I am sticking with the 5 for now.  If some miracle happens and I am up for it, I will do the 10. Plus LOTS of stretching and foam rolling!
Monday- Body Pump and volleyball
Tuesday- Zumba

Workout Wednesday!

Happy Wednesday friends!  Sorry it has been a few days since I last posted.  Things have been a little on the nutty side.  Life throws curve balls some days, and the last few weeks it has been way more than usual for me.
It is not the end of the world, but my hip has flared up again…so there has been no running once again.  Walking and elliptical have been ok, but I have to say that I am a bit discouraged about it.  I have a dr appt in a few days and we will see what he says about it.

Even though my workouts haven’t been awesome, the weather has been gorgeous!   

So my workout plan for this past week has been a bit different than I planned.  I also spent some time with a dear friend who is here and in the hospital.  Add to all that, I have been WAY exhausted.  I know part of it is from the weekend where I was caring for 3 kiddos and they had some sleep issues going on.  Of course they wanted to share their sleeplesness with me! So party in my bed several times a night certainly did not help with my sleep.
Here was my plan from last week:
Thursday: 3-4 mile run
Friday: Rest (might switch with Thursday)
Saturday: Long walk and stretches
Sunday: 2-3 miles walk/run
Monday: Body pump & volleyball
Tuesday: 2-3 mile run & zumba
Wednesday: Body pump and 3-4 mile run

  Thursday: Walking…and some of that walking included getting very lost at the hospital looking for my friend’s room.
Friday: Walking again and stretches
Saturday: Walking all over the place! Plus carrying a baby all over the house.
Sunday: Nice long walk outside
Monday: Body pump and walking
Tuesday: Walking and some rest
Wednesday: Body pump (went hard with all the weights)

 Even did some pumpkin squats for a workout challenge I’m in!  
For the next week I am aiming to focus on stretching, foam rolling and getting my hip back in shape.  I have a 10 mile race in 11 days (I am pretty sure I will be doing the 5 mile loop instead), so I really want to at least try to run a few times before the race. I have pretty much all expectations for this race, except to finish it!

How have your workouts been lately?  Fill me in!  Training for anything?
