Weekly Workout Recap: June Week 1

wwr

Another week has come and gone. How is it the second week of June? How is it the sixth month of 2013? Yeesh. Quick recap of a less than stellar and very frustrating workout week. My IT band is still not doing so great. I went to the chiropractor and that helped (active release) but it’s still tight but not as painful. I ran 3 times this week (well, run/walked) 1 mile, 2 miles, and 3 miles. I am going to wait until Tuesday to try again, and hit the treadmill instead od the hills around my neighborhood and see if that helps.

Here is a summary of my week:

Sunday: rest

Monday: 30 minutes elliptical, weights

Tuesday: rest

Wednesday: 1 mile run, weights

Thursday: 45 minutes stationary bike, weights

Friday: 2 mile run

Saturday: 3 mile run

I was doing SO WELL the past couple weeks with my two a days and my hard workouts, so it’s a little frustrating to have a lot of the high intensity come to a screeching halt, but I know I have to rest to heal. I am keeping KT Tape on 24/7 to aid in recovery and healing as well. That’s all I have to report for the day. back to stretching and foam rolling!

QOTD: How do you mental handle a sports injury?

Comments

  1. Yikes..sports injuries are tough. I think my IT band injury was the hardest to deal with because I’d only have it happen every now and then and there were so many other areas I had to strengthen to fix it. It’s hard to deal with, but I took it easy for a few months and followed exactly what my PT and trainer told me to do.

  2. I don’t really handle it :( I did do some retail therapy, and big thanks for that skirts code. I did use it on National Running day since they had free shipping and I had had that skirt bookmarked for a while.

  3. You have a great perspective- the mental piece of an injury is TOUGH! My husband has dealt with IT band issues, and the foam roller was magic for him. Roll, roll, roll… and hopefully you’re back at it 100% soon!

  4. I hope the IT Band heals up soon girl! It’s no fun being injured. Great job getting in your workouts this week!

  5. I whine…a lot…then just go ice ;)

  6. Those stubborn IT bands!! I’ve had such a big problem with mine too. I’ve found that changing my running routes (ie running the opposite way or running on the other side of the street that you usually do) really really helps. It gives that side a break! Also the next time you’re at a race with physical therapists, have your hubby watch as they stretch your it band! It’s wonderful being able to have someone stretch for you!

  7. I have only been running for a few months so haven’t had an injury yet. I’ve heard that all runners get them eventually though… I am dreading the day that it will happen as I have made so much progress with fitness and endurance since starting to run.

    Hope you heal up quickly!

  8. Hill runs are hard on the ITBs! Nice job with all your workouts though. I don’t usually do a weekly recap, but I think I’ll start :)

  9. Hi Heather,
    How do you scroll back through your posts when using a mobile device? I can’t work it out and hate having to go back to the main page all the time. Thanks.
