As I mentioned in my last post, I planned on getting in a little cross training today. I had about thirty minutes to work with so I set up a simple set of exercises and got after it.
I started with 5 minutes of jump rope to warm up and get the heart going. It's really the first time in months I have jumped rope and I am happy to report, still no foot pain. I think an ambitious jump rope session in the fall is what started my plantar issues, so I am keeping the rope time down and limiting it to warm ups once in awhile from here out.
After that, I did a couple sets of the following series, again with only 5-10 seconds between exercises and about 45 seconds between sets.
Pull ups to fail, 8-yikes!
Farmer's Walk to fail, about 2 minutes
25 Box Jumps
50 Russian Twists, 10lb. ball
25 Kettle Swings, 25 lb. Kettle
Coming off yesterday, this was tiring and a good basic workout. Ideally, I would have a day or two between strength workouts. However, the time I have is the time I have. Next week, I want to space them out maybe Monday and Wednesday/Thursday. For now, I'm tired and will be tired/sore a bit tomorrow. Mission accomplished. I am happy to be running tomorrow.
