Spartan reppin and a workout
Considering I’m training for the Death Race I find it important to rep as much as possible. I’m not kidding you when I say I find myself wearing Spartan gear at least 4-5 times a week. I feel like a badass.
On a different note… I WENT TO THE GYM! First workout in about 4 weeks 🙂 It felt amazing. No, I’m not deadlifting or squatting or even doing any plyos yet but I’m aloud to train. Getting back to it slowly as to not worsen my current injuries. Balance people.
I’m seeing a chiropractor in hopes to help fix the alignment of my back/pelvic and figure out why my sacral isn’t healing well. Love the chiro, feels so good but it also sort of freaks me out when you hear a big crack!
I’m meeting with the orthopedic doctor next week to get results from my most recent MRI (so thankful I’m insured under my parents or I’d be in deep trouble!!) and will come up with a final game plan then. A ‘rough draft’ plan is made but once I know for sure I’ll let you guys know!
The workout I did yesterday was
- 15 minutes on the elliptical (can’t do any impact)
- BB rows 4×15 @ 55
- Push ups 4×15 keeping very strict form
- 15 minutes on the arch trainer
As much as I HATE the elliptical it is one of the only forms of cardio I can do right now so I’m willing. If I keep up treating my body with respect I’ll be back to
unleashing my inner badassness training for the race in no time! If I put in the work now to heal I’ll be able to kill it soon enough. Having to take this time off to recover isn’t all that bad in the big picture. No, the timing isn’t awesome with an event in 13 weeks and the Death Race in 17 weeks but it is what it is.
PS sorry for the lack of WIAW this week! I was a wee bit excited to get to the gym 🙂
Have a good day!
