Les Mills Pump Workout: Pump and Shred
I need to hire someone to wake me up in the morning…FOR REAL! I set my alarm to wake up early to run and get my workout done before work. I pressed snooze at least 20 times. No joke! I just need to keep trying with my sleeping habits. I’m not giving up on it. I finally woke up and headed to my final day at work for the season. The rain stopped by the time I work, I was in a great mood, and I had a better sales day. A few co-workers and I hung out for a bit afterwards. I celebrated the wrong way by eating bad for dinner. I had a sick feeling afterwards and I’m actually feeling it up until now. When you eat bad after eating healthy for a while, your body doesn’t respond well. I’m not giving in like that again. Either way it was a good time and I couldn’t have imagined a better ending to a long work season. I’ll have a lot of free time for the next few weeks until my next job starts up. I’ll be using that time to work on school, my business, and more personal development especially my health and fitness.
I was taking my time in doing my workout as soon as I got home. There has been a lingering dull pain around the area under on the top of my right foot. Of course, me being paranoid when it comes to health problems, I did a search on it. I might have a small stress fracture. The top of my foot by the pain looks a little swollen and I can feel it when I flex my foot. I think it started on Monday while I was doing my lunges and running the other day might’ve played a role in it too. It could all be from the shoes I use which are Vibram FiveFinger KSO’s…aka barefoot shoes. Maybe not because they’re used for running. Either way, I’m getting new shoes since they are over a year old.
I worked out to Pump and Shred tonight. I don’t know if an Ace knitted ankle brace would help but I wore it just in case. I stuck with the 5 pound plates during the warm up, squat track, and chest track. I also stuck with the 10 pound plates during the legs and back track. When it came to the legs track, I worked with the barbell instead of the 5 pound plates. I wanted to make sure I was not going to injure myself any further if it happened while I was doing lunges on Monday. The entire workout went smoothly.
Depending on how my foot feels tomorrow morning, I’ll try to do more of my 5K training. For the rest of the night, I’ll be taking care with it.
KIA KAHA…BE STRONG!
