wantfitin's Journal, 26 September 2009

Since recovering from my knee injury in May, building up the strength and starting jogging, I was trying to incorporate some weight training into my routine. The upper body weight training is coming along just fine, but I have struggled to do anything for my lower body. I have tried a couple of times the usual lunges, step-ups etc. Every time afterwards my knee "wasnt happy", and I had to miss a few jogging session. My excuse was that running/jogging and my half marathon training do at least some good for my leg muscles, and I dont need to add weights. Truth to be told, I am not that great at running, so more and more I was getting concerned. Well, finally this week I decided to work on my glutes. They are part of my legs too, right? I picked very few and simple exercises: squats + side step, one leg dead lift with no additional weight, donkey kicks and bridges. I did 2 sets, 15 reps each and some crunches at the end. I didnt even think it was doing anything... Boy, oh boy, do I feel my glutes and hamstrings today!!! Thank God, my knee is OK but I am not sure how fast I will be running tomorrow :-)

Great job making progress on weight training. I am struggling with that myself, for the same reason you mentioned. Please let me know if you end up being happy with your routine--I might have to copy you. :)
