Good morning folks!!
Happy Wednesday aka "the second best day of the week"! We're halfway there!!
My co-workers and I bought lottery tickets yesterday, but alas! I'm up and getting ready for work this morning as we were unfortunately not winners :(
Last night, I met a couple of ladies at Riverside for my 1 hour endurance run. I wasn't really feeling well and my legs were tired/hurting so it wasn't really my best effort, but I did the best I could and I got 5 miles done in 58 minutes. Afterward, I foam rolled my left hip and leg while watching the finale of "The Voice"
This morning, my leg is still sore. I've really been a lazy bum lately and have slacked off my cross training. Big mistake, HUGE!! I can really tell a difference! Today my coach has me scheduled to do a hip series. I referred to it yesterday in my weekly goals post and was asked what I do, so here's the hip routine I'll be doing later today. Coach Jay Johnson's MYRTL routine:
1: Clams--8 per leg
2: Lateral leg raise--15 per leg
3: Donkey kick--8per leg
4: Donkey Whips--5 per leg
5: Fire hydrant--8 per leg
6: Knee circle forward--5 per leg
7: Knee circle backward--5 per leg
8: Hurdle trail leg forward--5 per leg
9: Hurdle trail leg backward--5 per leg
10: Lateral leg swing--5 per leg
11: Linear leg swing--10 per leg
12: Linear leg swing bent knee--10 per leg
If you're more of a visual person, like I am, here's a PDF of the routine for reference as well. I'm sure I'll look silly doing this at the gym, but I'll be glad I did it later when I am running with no pain!!
That's all I've got for now. Take care and have a wonderful Wednesday!
Be awesome today!
What's on your workout schedule today??
