Weekend Workouts

Saturday, 7 March 2009

I "ran" a 5K. My wife is a big runner and my dire need for increased cardiovascular fitness led me to accompany her on a weekend run. Yeah...I was gassed in minutes; but, ended up run/walking the 5K loop in 35-40 minutes. My wife ran it twice and made me look like a bumbling fatty; but, I did it and will continue to do it until I can comfortably run a 5K.

After I wrapped up my core work, I stretched and did some foam roller work on my legs and back to try and loosen up from my run on Saturday. The stretching and foam roller work paid off - I'm not nearly as sore as I anticipated. However, I am extremely sore from the grip work. I'm active resting today - I brought my stress ball and easy extensor band to the office with me and I've been hitting them on-and-off all day.
