What What! Week #2 of my Hammy recovery. First off, I may have been introduced to “The Mindy Project” – perfect running material for The BEAST (a.k.a. treadmill)…I seriously crack up watching this show.
Second, we just had a wicked snowstorm:
Before is Monday around 5pm, After is Tuesday around 4pm and we got more snow yesterday too! Winter has finally arrived in Nova Scotia!
What my 2nd week of recovery looked like:
Tuesday 20th – Ran 2k 🙂 & PT exercises
Wednesday 21st – PT exercises yoga at home.
Thursday 22nd – Ran 2k, weights – needed a little motivation.
Friday 23rd – PT exercises (getting kind of bored of these)
Saturday 24th – Ran 2k on the treadmill before dinner with the hubs. Almost didn’t run but glad I did in the end.
Sunday 25th – NOTHING – Skipped my PT exercises – whoops! Was feeling under the weather
Monday 26th – Ran 2k, did some upper body weights, planks, push-ups, jumping jacks and I may have jumped/walked around the house so I could get my 10,000 daily steps on my Fitbit.
Tuesday 27th – STORM DAY! Was supposed to have Physiotherapy but I postponed it due to weather. Also, I’m pretty sure I did some of the Sweatpink #noexcuses but can’t remember when or what – slight fail.
Week 2 – I managed to not have any pain in my hamstring when putting on socks and shoes! I know, such a simple task would cause me great pain before. I’m getting discouraged by the pain/pull in my hamstring and hoping after tomorrow’s physio appointment things will improve.
This week, I can run 3k every other day 🙂 I’m really hoping she will let me do some more exercises…I’m ready to move on.
In case you missed week #1 update.
Ever get board of the same PT exercises?
What do you do when you want to move on to something else to help your injury?
Do it anyway without your PT’s advice or wait?
Anyone addicted to getting in their daily steps with their Fitbit or other tracking device?
