So this weekend, your job is to workout harder than me. And then comment on this post with exactly what you did, how heavy you did it, and long it took you to do it! And while you’re at it, I want to know your favorite post-workout treat too!
I can’t workout.
I’ve got some major pain in my heels which looks to be either a bad case of bursitis (in both heels), a possible stress fracture (in my left heel), and a little bit of plantar fasciitis to boot. No pun intended. I’m not actually in a boot–yet–but it could come down to that if I do have a fracture and if I don’t take it easy.
So you know what I’m doing instead of working out?
Erik’s brother is getting married in December, and so is his sister next September. So you know what his sister, future sister-in-law, and I are going to do this weekend? Pedis, manis, lunch, and wine tastings of course! Ha! And sigh, as little walking as possible for myself in hopes of healing my heels. Does anyone know if it’s bad to mix ibuprofen, fish oil, and wine together? Ha 😉
But seriously, if anyone reading this has ever experienced bursitis in his/her heels or even a fractured heel, what did you do? How did you get over it? I’ve done the research on plantar fasciitis, but now I’ve got to learn about the rest. Thoughts, tips, or strategies? Comment below PLEASE!
And here’s your workout that you must do for me this weekend…
- 500 meter row or run
- 25 weighted overhead walking lunges (you can hold a plate, dumbbells, kettlebells, a barbell, or nothing)
- 15 squats (weighted or not)
- 10 burpees
Rest 5 minutes
Then complete 5 rounds:
- 10 dumbbell or kettlebell snatches (alternate arms)
- 10 sit-ups
- 10 supermans
If you don’t have equipment for the snatches, sub push-ups–any variation you want! (handstand, knees, feet elevated, spiderman push-ups, etc!)
Don’t forget to tell me about your workout (even if it’s not this one) below! And add all your tips for bursitis, stress fractures, and plantar fasciitis below!
