Rehab Day 1: Operation Work That Booty

Who loves a sale? Duh, I do! Oh, and you do. We’re smart like that. Anywho, today’s sweet deal is coming to you from  Aspaeris Pivot Shorts (a sponsor of our Ragnar Team). If you have been thinking about buying compression shorts now is the time. This rad company is currently offering 50% off (yes, you read that right. Half off) when you enter code “cooleronline” at checkout. Go get you some. Do it.


I hit the gym this morning to get my rehab action on so that I can back to busting out miles ASAP.

Pinky McPinkerton here reporting to you live from my gym at 4:55 a.m. Today’s plan was to get some good cardio in to keep me race ready while strengthening my hips and glutes. This little pain in the rear has been a good reminder to me that I need to continue to incorporate strength training at least twice a week. I swear by it.

Operation work that booty is a go.

Started with 32 minutes on the moving stairs. Warmed up at level 12, ended at level 17. I completed 4 miles so if I was running that’s an 8 min pace. I’ll take it. I got through this with no pain so I am hopeful that the stairs will keep me in good cardio shape!

I then moved on to the open training room and did work (and may have pictured Dovlett yelling at me to get it done. just maybe):

6 sets of hip abductions
6 sets of leg lifts
6 sets of hip extensions
20 min of core: side and traditional planks, crunches, stability ball knee tucks (traditional and side) Stretched and foam rolled to cool down.

I am determined to get rid of this lame hip/butt annoyance. Watch out J-Lo, I may be the new VP of  Bubble Butts when I am done. I don’t think the world is ready for that. HA!


I still plan on running Tink this weekend unless my butt says no. What? You’ve never heard someone talk out of their……oh…wait…awww man….
