Hectic Week :(

May 18, 2013 , , ,

Well this week was a mess!  I only got 3 workouts in and the rest of the time I was running around like crazy!  I am dealing with an injury right now.  Pulled something in my upper hamstring area.  Had to do a lot of walking and stretching.  Here is my rundown for the week:

Tuesday  5/14/2013 – Walked 2.1 miles.  It was a boring workout because the street view was so plain.  Important thing is I did it!  I could feel my hamstring tightening and had to walk this workout.

Also completed an upper body workout.  Mostly used dumbbells. Completed 3 sets at around 12 – 15 reps each set.  Basically I worked chest, shoulders, back, biceps, and triceps. Had a pretty decent session 🙂

Wednesday   5/15/2013 – 2.1 mile walk/jog.  Still a boring run.  Plain street view. At least my hamstring is feeling better.

Saturday 5/18/2013 – This was the best workout of the week.  Did iFit workout in the Grand Canyon.  This was the second part of the West Rim Trail.  3 miles.  Treadmill ranged from 6% decline to 33% incline (which kicked my ass!!!).

The scenery wasn’t as pretty as this picture, but it was a nice change from running down a boring street!Image

I found a quote that I think says it all….. “Run when you can, walk when you have to, crawl if you must, just never give up” – Dean Karnazes.  And that is exactly what I do.  I know my limits and since I am plagued with multiple injuries ( 5 knee surgeries, 2 ankle/foot surgeries, low back double fusion) there are times I have to make myself slow down or run the risk of injuring myself again.

I post these workouts to keep myself accountable.  I don’t expect to have a lot of followers because I know this isn’t interesting enough for some of the folks out there.  But for me it means everything.  If it will help me  stay on track, then I will do it. And if by chance I can help motivate someone else, then it’s all worth it!!

I will end with this cartoon that is so real to me!!  I can totally relate 🙂

It’s hard to juggle everything going on in life and still get a workout in. It seems like you did pretty well still and had some great workouts in the week. Good luck and keep up the fitness.
