So after trying on my dress, I realized I didn’t need to go too crazy or my dress would be a bit too loose, what a problem to have, right? I decided to continue rehabbing my hamstring and just eating well.
So what did I do last week?
Food wise, I continued with limiting my salt intake as well as drinking lots and lots of water and eating more fruits & veggies.
One of my fav new breakfast meals is to mix grapefruit & avocado with some jicama and cinnamon.
Lots and lots of hip exercises. I spent a lot of time doing a series of about 12 different hip exercises to really strengthen that hips called the myrtl routine by Coach Jay of Nike. I’m not sure if you have to do the exercises in order but here they are.
Lateral Leg Raise 3 ways: neutral foot, foot pointed up and foot pointed down
Knee circles, forward
Knee circles, backwards
Hurdle Trail Leg, forward
Hurdle Trail Leg, backwards
Lateral Leg Swing
Linear Leg Swing
Linear Leg Swing with bent knee
I also found some yoga poses that help with sciatica so I did those several times as well.
As far as running, I ran 3 times last week and then Sean & I ran/hiked in the Cleveland National Forest on a portion of the San Diego 100 course. We had a great time out there. It’s a very beautiful place to run.
Less than 2 weeks to go and I’m super excited.
