The 100

Great news!  I am finally out of my boot!  I am not allowed to go full-force back into my workouts, but I am able to build back up to what I was doing before.  Luckily, I only had minor muscle atrophy in my left calf, and tightness in my ankle.  So there is not too much I have to build back, and I got a list of exercises from the physical therapist to regain the muscle and mobility.

I won't share the physical therapist workout, because that would be super boring.  But I will share one of my favorite quick at-home workouts.  My goal is to work back up to it by the end of next week.  Be warned: this will kick your butt.  But in a fun way!  The first time I did this, I wanted to quit after the first set of leg lifts.  But the end was way easier after pushing past that first hurdle.

The only change I make is that when Callie comes with me, I turn that last step into a 20 minute walk, because Callie really isn't very good at running on a leash.

So here it is, The 100:
100 jumping jacks
90 crunches
80 squats
70 leg lifts
60 jumping jacks
50 crunches
40 squats
30 leg lifts
20 jumping jacks
10 minute run

And then go pass out because your butt has been kicked.
