I am a little afraid to commit. My fear is that I won't be recovered enough to train but I'm seriously considering. I mean, I'll be doing 10 miles in early May & could plan on doing at least 1 more long run just before my surgery. Then after my surgeon gives me the go ahead to start I shouldn't be too far behind the power curve. I do expect some serious set back in my training but I think I'll recover pretty quickly--like muscle memory, right?
I actually feel pretty honored that I was asked to run with this group. They are the "cool" kids at work. It's pretty "high school" to think that way but I do.
Today's leg workout entailed the following:
Step - ups 3 x 12 @ 15 lbs (didn't have 20s at work)
Lunges 1 x 12 @ 15, 1 x 12 @ 12, 1 x 12 @ 15
Side lunges 1 x 12 (each side) @ 8 lbs
I went light on the side lunges because my legs are pretty well fried & I wasn't sure how they would feel. I will be increasing my weight on those.
I need to find (make) time to work my core. I'm going to try some pikes on the ball this weekend. See how my shoulder feels. I am also considering some of those Turkish getups. We'll see how my legs feel after my 3 miles tomorrow.
I'm thinking about buying the Super Swim Pro to help me train at home after I recover.
