Good morning folks!!
It's Wednesday and that makes me happy, happy, happy for 2 reasons: we're halfway to the weekend and it's Workout Wednesday. It's the day that I post a new workout for you to try.
Lately, I've been going to spin class and bootcamp at Fleet Feet Sports Tulsa on Wednesday nights. I love these classes. The instructors and participants make it fun! I enjoy working out with a group for the encouragement and support. And these classes are challenging. But, I'm still sore and tight from the Little Rock half marathon and I'm concerned about stressing my existing injuries. I think I'll tape them up well with kinesio tape and hope for the best. But, if it is too much impact, my fall back plan until I'm healed completely is to concentrate on strength training. I've been searching for low impact options. It looks like Fitness Blender has a lot of good options! It also looks like there are some good options on Pinterest too.
And Pilates is also a good low impact exercise to help strengthen my core, hips and glutes. Pilates is
a body conditioning routine that may help build flexibility, muscle strength,
and endurance in the legs, abdominals, arms, hips,
and back. It
puts emphasis on spinal and pelvic
alignment, breathing, and developing a strong core
or center, and improving coordination and balance. Pilates' system allows for
different exercises to be modified in range of difficulty from beginning to
advanced. Intensity can be increased over time as the body conditions and
adapts to the exercises.
I'm pretty certain that I'm going to remain on the running disabled list for a little while longer and I'm a little bit disappointed. But I'm also excited about the workout options that are available to keep me moving and fit while I rehab these injuries.
Get up, get out, get moving and make it a WONDERFUL Wednesday!
Until next time...
Have you ever tried Pilates??
