Week 5, Day 1: Stretch & Strengthen

I went to Target yesterday and bought a yoga mat and a foam roller. I haven’t foam rolled my legs in a while, and oh boy were they tight today!

Today, I am back on the saddle for Week 5. I’m a little nervous because I skipped the Week 4 long run. I hope that doesn’t bite me in the butt later.

One of my goals for this week is to continue doing the strength work I did during Knee Recovery Week. Today’s Stretch & Strengthen session consisted of the following:

  • 20 minute warm up on stationary bike; light to moderate intensity
  • Myrtle routine
  • 3 x 20 lunges (each leg)
  • 3 x 20 step ups (each leg)
  • 3 x 10 partial pistol squat
  • 3 x 10 push ups
  • 3 x 30 seconds plank hold
  • 3 x 10 chair assisted pull ups.

The lunges and pistol squats were tough.
