Workouts for injuries, biking, and MORE

Hey there!  I missed last Friday so I have a few thoughts from life to share!  I have a new workout plan for 3 weeks that is great for someone with a foot injury (that would be me) or anyone who wants low impact, but kick your trash workout!  First off, I have a picture of my beautiful bike that I LOVE so much!!!

IMG_0047 (1)I might look like I know something about biking, but really I don’t!  I’ve gone about 7 times now.  I live in a pretty hilly neighborhood and HOLY COW I think biking a hill is harder than running it!  I LOVE it!  My friends are already planning a race to do together in AUGUST.  I need to learn a little bit more biker lingo and etiquette.

Biking will be my cardio of choice for at least 3 weeks while I heal a STRESS FRACTURE!! I finally went to the doc.  Wish I went 3 weeks ago, but it’s good to know that it is a stress fracture and if I wear this beautiful STORM TROOPER boot for 3 weeks I will be healed!!  I try not to think about how it felt to RUN or do my HIGH FITNESS classes.  I’m hoping to come back even stronger.  Summer injuries are especially not fun!  ANYWAY!!!  HERE I am with my boot!  Everyone tells me how cute my purple running shoes are.  Before the boot that’s all I was wearing because it felt good on my foot.

The other day I was at the gym and I LOVED my workout.  I found it from a fitness girl I follow and yes she’s doing a 12 week training program too.  Awww dang, too many workouts to choose from I can’t decide!

IMG_0081I changed it up a bit to fit my needs right now.

WARM UP

5 minute row machine

5 minute eliptical

5 minute spin bike

3 X

15 Push ups

10 Pull ups (that would be assisted for me!)

20 Thigh Adductor (inner thigh machine)

20 Leg Extensions

3 minute bike

3X

20 Alternating biceps

20 Weighted sit ups

20 Tricep Extension

20 Thigh Abductor (outer thigh machine)

20 Lying ham curls

I usually move at a fairly quick pace through each exercise.  Yesterday, I thought of workouts I could do over the next 3 weeks.  This is what I’ll be doing!

Bike 3-4 days a week

Strength Train 3 days a week:

Back Biceps Abs

Chest Triceps Abs

Shoulders Legs Abs

I’m not sure of the days yet and all the exercises involved.  I’ll be putting that together tonight so I can bike to the gym and  lift on Saturday!  Here’s a fitness tip to remember!  I’ll be o.k. if I can’t run or do a crazy amount of cardio!

I’m loving SUMMER and the warm weather and relaxed FUN schedule!!  Last weekend we went boating with friends.  Here’s a pic. with my daughter.  She’s been working hard with a musical she’s involved in.  She’ll play Gabriella in High School Musical this weekend!!  Can’t wait to see her!  Have a GREAT sunny weekend.  Enjoy the outdoors.  (: Smile
