Momentum Monday: Low Impact Workout For Runners
Good morning and welcome to another week! It was a GORGEOUS weekend in South-Western Ontario and even though I wasn’t able to attend the races I had planned due to wanting to be as cautious as possible until I get the all-clear from my sports doctor, I made the most of it.
Friday night, I headed out to Kitchener for the first ever Run Kitchener Mile. I was joined by two of my colleagues from work and they both did an amazing job!
After that, I biked to a local BBQ with some friends and picked up my car. It was a solid week of biking to work and it helped me maintain training volume while I wait for the final results of my tests. I find out this week and will keep you posted.
Saturday morning, I headed to a local event that truly captures the essence of the area that I grew up in. It is called the Amish Auction and it is incredible to experience. I try to go every year because they sell everything from any animal you can imagine to antiques to mini cars?
Aside from that, I met up with some friends, did quite a bit of swimming and had a few campfires. I went home on Saturday night – my parents have just installed a new patio and it is amazing for summer nights.
I also fit in an amazing high intensity, low impact workout this weekend. I had a number of requests from readers who are struggling with injuries right now and I thought I would share one of my current favourite workouts to maintain fitness but still keep impact at a minimum.
I did it on the elliptical, but it can be adopted on the stationary bike as well.
Enjoy! It is a difficult one!
