You may or may not know that I broke my foot almost 2 weeks ago…. It’s not major, a twisted ankle that ended up in the stretched ligaments pulling off some bone fragments on the top of my foot. I was hiking on a local trail here in Lansing, MI with some friends and family, tripped on a stick and bam! Broken foot! (at least it happened while I was doing something fun!) I’m improving every day and it’s not nearly as bad as I thought it would be, but I’m still in a walking boot and trying not to put too much strain/weight on it as it heals for the next 4-6 weeks.
So, needless to say movement over here has been minimal since I can’t walk or run, but I have been trying to do at least some sort of physical activity every other day or so.
Here’s a strength training workout I created:
This will definitely be on my workout rotation over the next few weeks as my foot heals.
And thank goodness for the internet, because I have also found some quick YouTube videos that incorporate Pilates moves, bodyweight training, and non-weight bearing strength training into some workouts.
Remember that movement is essential to our physical and mental health!
