I was optimistic that my painful piriformis would be fine by this week, but unfortunately that hasn’t been the case. I’ve been moving and working out, but toned it down this week along with continuing to stretch it out every day. I’m really hopeful that this will be 100% soon so that I can dive 100% into training. Here’s how the week of training looked:

  • Saturday (1/18): 2.5 mile walk
  • Sunday: 1 hour pilates
  • Monday: 30 minutes pilates
  • Tuesday: REST
  • Wednesday: 2 mile run (no increase in pain from this!)
  • Thursday: 13 mile bike
  • Friday: REST

This polar vortex is really messing with my ability to be outside! The roads are still covered in snow and ice, and that combined with cold temperatures has completely driven me inside for most of the week (except the shuffling quickly to and from the car!). I can’t wait to be able to run outside again, and I find myself increasingly thankful as the weeks go by for my bike trainer!

Now it’s your turn to share! How has the polar vortex been messing with your normal schedule this week?
