Weekly Workout Recap: January Week 5 2014

Oh boy what a week. I didn’t do so great with my workouts, because I re-injured my back. I tried my first run after Tink last Saturday, and Sunday morning I was hurting again. It slowly got better, then Thursday I did some circuit training at the house and Friday it hurt as badly as the day I originally injured it (I woke up in the middle of the night in tears it was hurting so badly). So, no running for me this week, and probably for several more days as I continue to ice and take it easy!

Oh how I wish I felt this good again!

We also had a random ice/sleet storm come though Tuesday and Wednesday, so schools, gym, pretty much everything was closed all week and we were cooped up inside (hence the circuit training in my living room on Thursday). Here is what I DID do last week:

Sunday: rest

Monday: 45 minutes stationary bike

Tuesday: rest

Wednesday: rest

Thursday: 30 minutes circuit training (think squats, lunges, jumping jacks, etc.)

Friday: rest (not move from the couch with an ice pack on me)

Saturday: Long easy walk by myself

QOTD: Have you ever pulled your back? How did you do it? How long were you out of commission?

  1. I’m sorry to hear about your back! I hope you get plenty of rest and are back to running shape soon!

  2. I’m so sorry to hear about your back. I have had a back injury (SI joint) and it is so painful. Did find resting, stretching, and icing to help as well as PT…good luck :)
