Last week’s workouts included a couple trips to Top Tier Crossfit and a solo cycle class using the Aaptiv app. And I didn’t run at all. The last time I didn’t run even one mile in a week was in April 2016! (I just scrolled through my Strava training log and had to scroll a while!!) I can’t believe how awful this plantar fasciitis has been. Thankfully the workouts at Top Tier Crossfit were good last week and I tried their new HIIT class which I really liked too. And the Aaptiv Cycle classes help me get that heavy sweat I crave.
But, I ran 4 miles this morning and my foot felt the best it has felt since this plantar crap all started a few months ago. I still notice it walking around the house all the time though. I have needling with my physical therapist again this week, and I’m debating going to a sports doc but I think they’ll just refer me to a PT anyway. I asked one of my friends who is an orthopedic surgeon and he said that at this point, the next step with a sports doc would be an MRI to see if there is something else going on. And I figured I should try rest first so I could at least tell the doctor that I had taken time off running before I went the MRI route (since that shiz is expensive).
Anyway, it could be worse and at least I have lots of other workout options I can do! Here’s what last week’s workouts looked like.
M – Vinyasa Flow + solo Aaptiv Cycle
T – Top Tier CrossFit
W – Top Tier Crossfit
I worked up to 85# on the strength portion and finished the metcon in 1 minute, 50 seconds using 75#; it was much shorter than I was expecting. It was fun lifting with Emily since we never get to workout together.
Th – Top Tier Elevate HIIT
This workout was much more ? than I was expecting. It destroyed me! (Their Elevate classes are bootcamp-style classes, not CrossFit.)
F – REST (unless you count walking all over the Biltmore as a workout, which I kind of do! 🙂 )
Sa- REST – two short hikes in Boone with my niece visiting from Utah
Su – REST
I’ll do a separate post about my niece’s visit since we did a LOT in NC while she was here 4 days!
Total Miles: zero 🙂
How I’m Feeling: Grateful that I have other workout options! And grateful that my foot felt a little better today! 🙂
Have a good week!
