Happy New Years!!  I did 60 mins on the elliptical barefoot, I decided if I am going to go to the zero drop shoes I should do that on the elliptical too.  I felt good so I did a 15 min warmup and then did 3 mins med/hard and 2 mins hard for 45 mins then got on the bike and did and easy spin while I lifted my upper body.  I have to multi task to get in the weights.  Then stretched for 10 mins.

Got homeopathic injections in my glute for sciatic and hammy, it is sore so i think i will take a couple days off.  He also told me the extreme stretching for the hamstrings is not good for a healing sciatic, it make the sciatic tether against stuff and cause more pain.

taught a yoga class for the ladies in my ward for an hour, being careful not to aggravate the sciatic nerve.  Then came home and did 60 mins on the elliptical med/hard.

30 mins medium on elliptical and 30 mins on the bike along with weights upper.  For some reason I was sore in my glutes today it must of been my super hard workout yesterday.

Got my zero drop shoes yesterday I will probably go out tomorrow and try a little running and see how it feels.  Crossing my fingers:)

Started with 15 min warmup on the elliptical and then went out for 2 miles with half mile of running.  The jury is still out whether I'm ready or not, although it has not seemed to aggravate anything further.  I feel about 65% better than 2 months ago when I tried running.  Then I did 25 more mins on the elliptical and 20 mins on the bike.

45 on elliptical with 35 med to hard then 15 on bike while lifting upper body then stretched.  The running doesn't seem to be aggravating the sciatic so I will begin a very slow work up of miles.  I like the zero drop shoes.

So after yesterdays run my right SI locked up I think it was because I didn't warmup at all, shame on me.  I went to Dr. B and he did the injections again, this morning I was sore but after doing 30 mins on the elliptical and yoga I feel much better.  My right SI did this after one of my first runs not to worried just need to warm up before i run.

Did my workout in the P.M.  started with 20 min on the elliptical and then went out for 2.5 mile run.  My right SI and down the outside of my leg have been hurting, will  this ever stop.  My sciatic feels good but my whole back and right SI feel like i am an old women.  I am starting to question whether this running thing is good for you or not.  To bad i love it and don't want to give it up.  So just more patience and spending money trying to get myself better.

Did a good 15 mins ab workout and stretched.

My back felt much better today, I think a combination of running to fast and doing abs on a hardwood floor was to blame.  So I just ran east peasy today, pushing the jogger made sure i did.  Warmed up on the elliptical for 20 mins then went out 4.5 running 2.5 in the middle.  stretching plan on some more tonight.

PM abs

Warmed up on the elliptical for 40 mins and then went out for 3.8 miles running 3 of those.  then stretched.  I have decided that I am just going to take if day by day with the running, I get super discouraged when my back acts up because I want to run a certain amount but if I just know that it is different day to day and not expect anything then being able to do something is great.  Had minimal back pain and felt good after I got into it.
