Spring Brings Rain and Flowers
On Monday afternoon after the rain had stopped, I took a short walk around my neighborhood. I felt as if I’d turned a corner (with the flu) on Sunday, but didn’t want to overdo it with any sort of strenuous workout. I knew that seeing and photographing spring flowers would do my heart good!
Pink and Purple Hyacinths…
And by Tuesday’s walk, the the sun was shining and the sky was blue giving these cherry blossoms a cheery backdrop…
Another Canceled Trip
On Wednesday, instead of packing for our long weekend at the beach on the Outer Banks, I took a screenshot of how wonderful the weather was going to be during the days that we had planned to be there…
Physical Therapy, the Great Healer
On Thursday I had my first TeleHealth virtual workout experience via a Skype session with my physical therapist. Because I’d been sick and had skipped almost a week of working out, she went easier on me as I came back up to speed. She introduced a few more flexion exercises and reviewed some of my previous exercises to double check my form.
Personal Fit Fitness has Reopened… Virtually
Even though per Virginia’s governor’s orders, all gyms are to remain closed at least through April 23rd, I have started seeing clients again, albeit virtually. I will go into that more in a separate post on Tuesday, but it felt so good to be working with my clients again on Thursday and Friday.
And Now on to a RunDown of this Past Week’s Workouts…
0 x 0 Miles
Still no running, but hopefully soon…
1 x 1 Mile outside
2 x 3.1 Miles outside
Monday’s walk was super easy and short; however, by Tuesday I felt like pushing it a tiny bit harder. While keeping my pace reasonably easy, I walked a 5K while talking to my mom on the phone and did the same on Saturday.
1 x 15 Miles
I hopped on my spin bike (affiliate link) on Wednesday for some easy miles, planning to do ten, but got distracted with TV. Before I knew it, I was nearing fifteen miles so I stayed with it until I got to that magic number. This week I’m going to focus on pushing myself a little harder at shorter distances – not that fifteen miles is that far on a bike.
2 x 1 Hour
1 x 30 Minutes of PT
3 x 30 Minutes of PT Homework
After a week off, it felt so good to get back into a strength training routine!
0 x 0 Minutes
I still haven’t gotten back into my yoga routine and I’m starting to feel it…
It’s on the Blog
In case you skipped checking in on my blog this past week, here’s what you missed…
- Sunday – Spring Flowers, a Missed Visit, and a Surreal Experience
- Tuesday – Trend Setters Enjoying the Cherry Blossoms – a fun look back to pulling our sons behind our bikes in their Burley trailer to see the cherry blossoms in DC when they were little
Looking ahead to this coming week, I’ll talk about working from home now that I’ve started virtually training some of my clients. My spotlight on local athletes post is definitely on for this Thursday. It’s a great one and you don’t want to miss it!
In addition to the workouts I mentioned above, here’s a complete rundown of my workouts from this past week (completed either outside or in our home gym)…
- • Have you had to cancel any trips due to the pandemic?
- • Are you seeing spring flowers popping up where you live?
- • Did you run in a virtual race this weekend?
And that’s my rundown… Have a great week!
