Well, this isn’t much of a report due to the fact that I’m Jill Will Gimp right now.
- Monday: attempt to do X-Stretch in P90x with my hubby, downward dogs didn’t happen
- Tuesday: NTC app strength training
- Wednesday: Mat Pilates from YogaDownload
- Thursday: Hooping & Weights
- Friday: Hooping & Weights
- Saturday: Hooping
- Sunday: Hooping
The good news is that I figured out that I can still hula hoop with my boot on. I can’t attempt to keep learning tricks, but I can knock out a solid 30 minutes of waist hooping. Plus it is a chance to NOT sit down… because honestly I get really tired of sitting all day. This has sparked my desire to learn more about hooping. I joined the HoopCity community so I can learn more and watch their free classes, possibly moving to paid classes later. It was interesting when filling out my profile on the site, it asked me what other skills I had and some of the choices included Belly Dancing and Fire Eating. Wow… what a different community from running ones! I love it!
I can also do plenty of things like dumbbell curls, triceps kickbacks, rows, etc. So I have been using dumbbells regularly. I’ve been trying to watch some tutorial videos each day for my last hour of work, so I can watch the videos while doing stuff with dumbbells. Working out while working!
So what does the next week hold? I have a backlog of reviews to complete, so I should probably wrap those up! I’m not going to do a formal plan of workouts for the week just because I’m doing what I feel like with my boot situation.
I am also going to be flying to Napa on Friday for Team Challenge to do the Napa to Sonoma Half Marathon. I’m a little concerned about flying with this boot on. I have no idea how the TSA will react of what they’ll make me do with it at security. I have a little bit of a beef with security at airports because it has never EVER EVER made me feel more secure about flying. It frequently makes me feel more insecure, as once you’re through you’ve unpacked your bags, taken off half your clothing and are usually stocking-footed.
Have any of you flown with some kind of injury?
