I'm doing other stuff!
|Monthly Squat Challenge....FUN YO!|
If I can't run...I figure I might as well build muscle and so that's what I'm doing.
I've been reading up on my Achilles tendon problem and it say that stretching is even bad for it....soooo I'm just icing it and resting it. They also say that the best thing for it to not happen again is to work on strength training and so that's what I'm doing!
Squats, lunges, sit ups, etc.
All those things effect my running and make me stronger. For someone who has never been a "weight person" after doing the Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred, I could definitely tell on my runs that I was stronger and couldn't believe how much easier it felt to run.
So I guess I'm gonna need to be a weights gal...and that's ok.
So during commercials as I'm "resting" but to me it feels just plain lazy...I'm doing squats, lunges and lifting free weights.
If you've ever been a mom, you have some pretty awesome "guns" just because 80% of your day your probably holding at least a 15-30lbs child in ONE arm and doing something with the other arm. And since Miss H is 6 1/2 years old now and over 50lbs...I just don't carry her anymore and with that has gone my arm strength. And that bothers me.
So I'm working on that...plus I want to have amazing arms for my wedding!
If I can't run I gotta start somewhere right??
Have a great weekend!!
