I went for a 60-minute class. When I pushed start, I questioned my sanity in attempting 60 minutes, but I was so glad I did. It was a power zones class, so it was focused more on endurance, and I loved it. I do think I need to do more of the hiit and hills/tabata type classes on my Peloton because it works on my fast twitch muscles (which I lack!) and gets me anaerobic, which I think will help with the short distances I want to race this summer (5K!!). I finished up with a 5-minute core class and then drove to my physical therapy appointment.
We did a gait analysis on the treadmill!
He asked me to scoot back on the treadmill belt because I naturally like to be too close to the console when I run on a treadmill.
My arms have always hung out wide when I run, so he said we will work on that last with some exercises in the future, but for now, the focus is on my hip drop. 5-7% is normal for women, but I am at 8% on my right side, so he gave me some exercises that I will do three times a week for the next month to help me stabilize and fire correctly.
I bet I’m at about 20% of a hip drop by the end of a marathon;). I’m sure having/carrying babies contributes to some of these weaknesses, but I’m excited to know exactly what to focus on with my strength training now.
My foot lands under my body, so I don’t need to work on that!
When I left, I felt so excited to see what happens with my racing as I work on these things!
We had a little beach day with the kids at the lake.
I did get everything back in my closet… it’s been in my bathtub for the last month.
Trees with blossoms and popsicles = perfection.
Now for some life errors–> It took me quite some time to realize that I had my shirt on inside out.
Another error was adding normal rice instead of instant rice to this chicken and rice recipe. Nothing like crunchy rice for dinner:). At least, I thought it was still good even though it isn’t pretty.
Does anyone else run too close to the console on the treadmill, or do you run more in the middle or the back of the belt?
Any funny life errors that you have made recently?
Most organized place in your living space and most unorganized place in your living space?
Ever had a gait analysis? What did you learn about you?
