getting stronger

The entire world was at Crissy Field this morning enjoying the summer weather.  After feeling really bored with swimming Saturday I decided that my leg was well enough to walk a few miles so when my friend called this morning, I excitedly met her at Crissy Field.  I wore shorts and a t-shirt, and enjoyed sweating in the sunshine.  We walked just over 3 miles and at the end I decided to try and run.  My hamstring started hurting after a few steps so I quit immediately and walked the rest of the way to my car.  I stopped in at the Y to do my roll-out and core exercises then added in a few reps of very light upper body weights.  I used only 5 lb weights and the stability ball instead of a bench to give my core a little extra work.

The workout:

3.2 mile walk

weights- 1 set of 10 each, shoulder press, lat raise- sitting on stability ball, alternating leg raise on each rep

1 set of 10 each, chest press & tricep curls- stabilizing on ball,  bicep curls
