I took Monday off to run errands after being away all weekend, but made it to Bodypump on Tuesday. It was day 2 with my heavier weights and it was another tough workout. I had to really push at times and the shoulder track was seriously KILLER. I felt good about my effort when it was over though.
Since the rest of my workout week got put on major pause, I thought I would take a look at my January miles. I ended January with 17.76 miles. I'm really happy with that number since it is more than quadruple what I ran in January 2017, although I was really hoping to have one final run on Wednesday. I'm still happy that I ran nearly twice a week and that most of my runs were in the 5k range.
Besides my one strength class, I did manage to start my February core challenge. This challenge increases the intensity over time, so the first few days were light enough for me to do while I wasn't feeling great. Even though I was extremely lethargic, it felt good to move a little each morning (it's when I had the most energy) because I was missing my workouts.
Monday - REST
Tuesday - Bodypump
Friday - REST
Saturday - REST
Sunday - REST and a walk
Now that a new week is starting, I'm wondering...how soon do you return to workouts after being sick?
