Turtle Power!!

Ok, so lately I've been feeling like a turtle since this whole recovering from an injury is a very long and slow process. But it is Wednesday and I'm finally feeling like I'm getting over the large hump and rolling back into it. Did my "No More Trouble Zones" dvd workout with Jillian Michaels and I am sooo impressed with myself. I was able to get into the 4th circuit of 6 before I couldn't finish one of the items out completely. For anyone that knows this one, can we say "vicious plank circuit" did me in. She's got that one right!!

I was able to increase my running intervals last night to 3 min. walking/ 2 min. running and still have no pain. I'm starting to feel giddy about all of this and I'm definitely in better shape than I was at the beginning of the year even though I haven't been able to run. I'm really pushing myself with my cross training workouts to get the same effect I would when I would push myself on longer runs. Tomorrow will be my second weekend of doing a mini-triathalon at the gym (only in reverse order since my PT told me to not run tired until I'm fully healed up).

Happy Hump Day Everyone!!


  1. Woo Hoo! Go Lish! So glad you are working your way back into the running. Take me with you please! :)

  2. I have never done a Jillian Michaels workout, but I bet it's intense! I should try one. Great job! Hoping you get back to running soon.


I would love to hear from you!
