12 Fit Days of Christmas Challenge


I am super excited to announce an up-coming challenge that I'm running through my personal training site - Where's the Beach Fitness.

My 12 Days Of Fit Christmas Challenge will begin on Sunday, December 14 and run for, you guessed it, 12 days. With this challenge, you have the chance to win 1 month of free online training*, or you can just do the challenge for fun!

How the Challenge Works

I'm sure you've likely seen some Christmas or Holiday workouts, even 12 Days of Christmas workouts. What's so different about this 12 Days Of Fit Christmas Challenge?
  1. You don't get the workout in its entirety in advance. You will need to register so that you receive the daily workouts via email. I will also post the workouts at 12 Days of Fit Challenge Page and on my Facebook Page.

  2. Each day leave a comment on the 12 Days of Fit Challenge Page letting me know that you completed the exercises. Comment is required. For fun, you can also Instagram or Tweet using #12FitDaysChallenge and/or tagging me (Instagram | Twitter).

  3. Complete all 12 days and comment each day and you will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win 1 month of free online training*. As a bonus, even if you aren't able to complete all 12 days, I will be offering participants a discount on 3- or 6-month plans PLUS 1 free month!

Questions?

Q. What types of exercises will you be sharing?
A. Exercises will be bodyweight only, mostly plyometric (e.g., squat jumps).

Q. What if I'm a beginner or can't do high impact?
A. I will provide modifications for all exercises so that anyone can do them.

Q. Can I do these exercises if I am already on a workout plan?
A. You should be able to complete the exercises in addition to any other workout, however, the length of time to complete will increase with each day as the exercises build.

Q. Why do I have to leave a comment each day?
A. Leaving a comment on the page each day lets me keep count of the number of workouts you complete and lets me know that you are doing the workouts each day.



* Online Basic Training will include: 4 weeks of workouts: 3 days of full-body weights and 2 days of HIIT cardio, links to videos will be included for all exercises. Plan also includes 1 weekly email check in.

(More details will be added, but feel free to email me with any questions: info@wtbfitness.com)

Plantar Fasciitis Woes & Way to Go Wednesday Shout Outs

I wanted to thank everyone again for your many congratulations on completing and getting a PR at my recent half marathon. The support and words mean so much to me.

My legs feel absolutely fine after the race. I could have run yesterday if it weren't for my left foot. So right now I'm trying to heal my left foot. I mentioned that I've been having problems with plantar fasciitis in that foot and that it was the cause of much pain during the race. Since the race, I've been unable to walk on it very well. Lots of hobbling going on.

I've been icing it and trying to keep it elevated. But, I noticed that it's started to get some bruising, not horrible, but worrisome. Not sure if it's better or worse for it to be discolored vs red and swollen. However, this could be indicitive of a tear.
But, my bigger concern with the bruising is that indication that there's been bleeding. Being on Xarelto for the blood clot means my blood doesn't clot very well these days…

Pumped Up Workout
I'll readily admit that I did not want to go to the gym today. I had no real excuses to not go though. I was just feeling lazy to be honest. But, I did myself a favor and made myself go. I knew I'd regret it if I didn't go.

I think part of my reluctance stems from a bit of boredom. I've gotten into a rut again with workouts. That and sometimes I just am flat out tired of seeing the inside of that place. But, that part aside, boredom all the way. So, I decided to try to do something a little different for my biceps/triceps workout. It's nothing earth-shattering. But it's a switch up from my typical 3 different supersets done as 3 sets of 8 reps....yawn.

So, today I did 4 sets of 8 reps for two supersets then I did dropsets at the end starting with heaviest weight for 6 reps, then increasing the number of reps by 2 as I decreased the weights. I did this 4 times (6, 8, 10, 12).

Piriformis Update & Grilled Veggie Salad

New Piriformis Exercises
Today wasn't too terrible for a Monday. Of course, I did leave a little early. That always helps huh ;-) I had another round of physical therapy today. My PT has been really researching piriformis syndrome and found an interesting article that discusses the use of McKenzie Exercises - typically used for back pain.

I have started adding in low back extensions (one of the exercises) but now have a whole new list of exercises to add into my workout rotations. But, if it helps, I'll do it. I also asked her about dry needling (thanks Sarena), which is sort of similar to acupuncture, but is more about trigger point and intramuscular stimulation.

And I'm glad I asked because the timing is uncanny. One of the doctor's in the clinic happens to be going to get certified this weekend. They both believe that I am a prime candidate for the procedure. So we'll see how that goes. Kind of scared because I hate hate hate needles.

Have any of you tried dry…
