I am so touched with the amount of support and caring that my many friends and family have shown to me. Since I cannot bend my knee until the stitches are removed I have to modify my workouts BIG TIME!! I am very lucky to have many personal trainer friends who have given me "WOD" (workout of the day) to do that are really kicking my butt! I am planning on having rock solid abs and sculpted arms just in time for summer!
Big thanks to Angel who has truly been my "Angel" through everything. She really keeps me sane! Mama Dawn is totally my voice of reason and always makes me see the big picture!! Josh and Tony are saviors for making my workouts hard and helping me work on my imbalances!
I started Physical Therapy yesterday and the therapist could not get over my lack of luck since Boston. He was awesome and took a ton of measurements of strength and flexibility. I was surprised by how weak my left side is...Apparently I have a weak core, glutes, and ankles! Lots of work to do but my therapist thinks I will come back a much stronger runner and get my PR # that I want! This gave me a ton of hope and was exactly what I needed to hear. My PT said he thinks by having stitches this is the best thing that happened at this moment because now I am forced to focus on my recovery!
So if anyone has a favorite WOD please share!
I know how it feels to have weak muscles!! Maybe this is a blessing in disguise because it will force us to strengthen our bodies!ReplyDelete
I am beginning to look at it that way. I definitely got so caught up in training/running that I just lost track of the importance of cross training. My next race is Sept 1 so I am hoping to come back and PR!ReplyDelete
