  1. RUN
    injured Turkey field and back 4.26 mi 00:40 09:29 pace

    Donna, come back! Numbness returned at mile 2 and overall this was not as successful as Friday's 4 miles, that's for sure...nor was it as fun. I was pretty much just chugging, and it su... read more

    alright Burn Circuit 3 00:30

    Lots of back pain yesterday so I was careful this morning. Still got a nice burn going!

  3. FIT
    good trainer miles 10 mi 00:45 04:30 pace

    Alternated between aero and upright for this good, sweaty spin. Still taking cautious stock of my condition and various aches and pains. No numbness in the legs, which is huge improvement, but mi... read more

  4. FIT
    good Burn Intervals 00:45

    Felt pretty good on this one. Still being really, really cautious. Burpees might have been a bad idea even though I modified them. What really bugs me is my mid-lower back after 40 minutes on my... read more

    good Social run - and SURPRISE! 4.11 mi 00:40 09:43 pace

    I said BOOM! almost no numbness in the hamstrings and ITB! I absolutely cannot believe it. I fully credit running with my bestie Donna N. as the reason. Everyone: call her to run with you if yo... read more

      Aw heck, all I did was talk your ear off so that you wouldn't pay any attention to the pain. LOL I so enjoyed our time together, Kristin! I'll come back to run as soon as I can. :)

    alright Burn Circuit 2 00:30

    Modified and subbed to make this one work. Looking forward to a little longer run today with my Donna N!

  7. FIT
    alright Burn Circuit 1 00:30

    Modified the exercises that could bother my lower back/SI by using suspension bands and body weight instead of free weights. I'm really liking those TRX things!

  8. RUN
    injured County line and back 2.26 mi 00:21 09:15 pace

    Deeply frustrated with the slow progress and continued lower back pain plus numbness in left hamstring and right ITB. Knee getting sore again too. Shortened the distance and picked up the pace a ... read more

    good Burn It Off 00:25

    Cardio intervals. Still modifying a few exercises to protect back and hips, but felt pretty good.

  10. FIT
    good A quick 15 3.5 mi 00:15:00 04:17 pace

    Wished I'd had time to go longer. Got a good hard 15 mins in, though, after the circuit training intervals.

      Nice job on the spinning and cardio. Way to fit it in before your crazy, annoying, and busy day.

    Felt like I was afirst time runner this morning. Barely made it three. Geez. No hip pain = fabulous. Minimal lower back soreness = acceptable for now. Numb hamstrings before mile 1 = absolutel... read more

    good trainer work 9 mi 00:40 04:26 pace

    Keep guessing at the miles based on a 14mph average...I really need a bike computer. Hit the trainer after 30 mins of weights. Minimal numbness subsided within 8 minutes. Finished the book my so... read more

    good Recharge 00:20

    Stiff and definitely a noticeable reduction in my customary flexibility, but this felt good. :)

  15. RUN
    good THAT'S RIGHT. I said running. 3 mi 00:31 10:17 pace

    Well, it was a jog really, a shuffle, but I'm counting it for sure because I didn't walk a single step. Didn't start out to run all of it, planned on running 8 mins and walking 4 mi... read more

    Arms sore after upper body work on suspension bands and weights this week. Took almost 20 laps to settle in. Then at 1200 yards, the left hip started to stiffen up and bug me. Did okay, though, ... read more

    Vastly relieved to discover I could still do the walk-run-walk intervals after feeling awful in the lower back and hamstrings since Monday. Still unsure if it was the intense PT on Friday, the fal... read more

    Really, really distressed. I can't tell if it's from the two hard falls on my bum Saturday afternoon on the ski trails or if it's from 30 mins weight lifting I did on Monday, but my... read more
