Back Into It

It’s been a while since I’ve posted here, and it is mostly because I’ve been trying to figure out the whole arthritis thing when it comes to my ankle. It has truly become my Achilles Heel, of sorts. It turns out there isn’t too much that can be done for osteo-arthritis aside from controlling inflammation. The good news is that there is quite a lot that can be done for inflammation, long-term, aside from icing.

In my desperation to continue running, I figured I’d throw the kitchen sink at inflammation and cut back severely on sugar and carbs. It turns out that this works great! While I’ve been on a low-sugar, low-carb, no processed grains, no alcohol diet over the past month or so, I have been able to resume regular running and HIIT workouts. I’m super-excited! While I can’t get in the volume I used to, it is good to be back in the game and I’m hoping things progress so that I can up the intensity. Back in May I could hardly walk up stairs without (literally) crawling, so this progress has been amazing - and all thanks to changes in what I am eating.

Anyway, Thanks to Christa Stryker and her amazing 12minuteathlete app, I had a super-fun workout yesterday. If you haven’t checked out Christa’s site or her app, I highly recommend them. She makes workouts super-easy and her app even has an integrated timer, so there’s no fumbling to build a workout in your timer before you actually get to work out. Super-easy!

The 12 Minute Athlete! How am I so late to Krista Stryker’s workout party? When I started this site I was doing more HIIT workouts, but over time I switched to circuits simply because it was easier to use the app I like to track my workouts for circuits instead of HIIT. Needless to say, HIIT workouts are still gold in my book so check out this site for some fast and furious workouts.

Burnin Buns!

My buns are already feeling today’s workout, so this one’s going down as a fav.

Warmup:

  • 100 High Knees
  • 100 Mountain Climbers
  • 50 Burpees
  • 50 Low Plank Reptiles
  • 50 Thrusters (45#)

AMRAP 10 min (Zuzana’s ZWOW #28)

I just discovered thrusters  so I threw in a few using just an Olympic bar in the beginning of the workout to try them out. By the end of the set I could feel my quads getting fatigued. I love them!

ZuZana’s ZWOW #20

I am so behind on these because I committed to doing Insanity for two months. I miss Zuzana’s workouts.

Zuzana has posted ZWOW #12 and it looks killer. Even she is out of breath by the end.

30min HIIT This Morning

5 x rounds of 50/10sec intervals

Jump lunges
Mountain climbers
Back lunge/High Kick
Side plank lifts (L)
Full extension crunch w/ 12# ball
Side plank lifts (R)

This workout is great cardio and way more challenging than it seems. I was sweating hard by the end!

The roads right now are in terrible shape. The temps are in the high 40(F) yesterday and today and snow is melting and refreezing at night, making things super icy. Right now the goal is to NOT BREAK ANY BONES before breakup is over.

Today’s workout with a HIIT and Spin. The HIIT circuit is focused on core, and is easy on the legs so I could recover them from yesterday’s run. Unfortunately, I landed on one of my big toes during the ninja jump tucks and gave myself a nice bloody nail that created a huge mess :/

Had 30sec rest after the AMRAPs and the first set of intervals.

The spin was a moderate 5.5min hill interval workout.
