Finishing off the January Challenge with BANG!

Yesterday and this morning ...

30 minutes walking
45 minutes zumba
30 minutes shoveling snow (yes, I'll count it! We had 6" of snow over 2 days and I shoveled 3 times)

Total = 105

robinb 775/750

I'll probably work out later today too but I wanted to bump myself over my goal this morning .

Done with zumba

Up to 910/1000. Didn't meet my goal but I think I did better than I would have if I didn't have a goal. Will strive for 1000 mins next month

I know I would have made it if I hadn't been knocked flat with that virus for five days...

On to February!

Oh wishers.... Please let me gripe a minute. I'm about to go to PT. I loathe going to PT. I'm very diligent about doing my exercises at home and have made so much progress on my own but everytime I come to these sessions I feel like I waste my time! I am here to get some harder exercises. I really hope that will happen. I cannot handle 30 leg lifts on each side and stupid stuff like that. It was helpful then, but I need more now!!!

Have you talked to your therapist why you are not progressing to harder exercises? Maybe they don't know how strong you have become and have you on a standard schedule for your injury.

Thanks robin, I should have explained myself clearer but they called me back for my session so I didn't finish my post. This is my first session in more than a year. Since my last time thru formal therapy I was extremely weak and injured, it was a lot of leg lifts etc. So my post was a hopeful wish that I wouldn't be doing just leg lifts, etc.

Lo and behold, yes, I did the stupid leg lifts. I know I need to do them but I still don't think they will help enough. The good thing about this session tho is that I think I have a really good therapist. She and I communicated very clearly with each other and she completely understands exactly what my challenge is and where I'm aiming to get to. She's very quickly was able to find that final weak point where i experience pain and is working to eliminate it. Another plus, she's a runner, so she gets the need to run, (and is letting me keep running) and she explained some other things to me in ways that seemed to make sense.

I guess it's a learning experience for us all to be patient with our bodies and with trainers and to keep looking and trying until you find something that works.

I realized that I'm definitely stronger than I was when I was injured before, but I really am not as strong as I thought. I think i seriously have overestimated myself in the whole "i did a half marathon" excitement. But on the plus side, she got me back onto a bike, so I'm excited to add some spinning to my cross training. I've missed it.

Despite the marathon length of my session, I'm gonna count it as 45 min tonight since I was on the bike for a while, then did exercises for a while before all the other therapy stuff. 925/800

Oh- and I meant to add that I will be updating the first post tomorrow with everyone's final reporting for January. I'm planning to do it later in the day, just in case people have minutes to post from tonight.

Thanks everyone for letting me hostess! I really had fun!

Finished out the month with a 60 min run/walk. Good finish for the month considering I ran the Tinker Bell half this month. Plan to keep up the momentum next month as I am running again in April.
