Archive for Derby Fitness 2014

Monday, February 17 Fitness

  1. Short Reilly walk (probably slightly less than one mile)
  2. Insanity “Light”

I had intended to attend league practice (I love Gaygan practices, and she was running it) and Contenders practice (Rowdy taught new offensive drills) but I woke up with a sore throat that worsened through the day, so I opted for sleep and taking it easy instead.  Good thing, too, cuz I kind of feel like crap again today.

I did Insanity Cardio Circuit and Cardio Abs, but I had to modify several of the exercises because my left knee is still bothering me.  Dr. Borman and our new physical therapist tested it and it seems fine, but it hurts if I squat/put too much weight on it.  Matt, the physical therapist, said it was okay to keep skating/working out as long as I don’t squat to deep.  So I think I modified lunges, squats, and power jumps (landing in squat position on my hurt leg was a big no no.)

RMRG Travel Team Fitness 2014

The Rocky Mountain Rollergirls Travel Team skaters are responsible for outside of practice fitness in the 2014 season.  I like working out outside of practice, but I tend to take a “go big or go home” approach and when I take one day off, I give up completely.  I’m going to use this blog to hold myself accountable.

My 2014 Season Goals:

  1. Improve blocking and jamming abilities to contribute the most possible to RMRG and Fight Club/Contenders.
  2. Jam for Fight Club, and not just on the London trip that three other Fight Club jammers can’t attend.
  3. Stay on the Fight Club 20

My 2014 Fitness Goals:

I don’t really know how to write these…

  1. Roller Derby practice 2-3 times per week
  2. Spin Class 1-2 times per week
  3. Insanity/Off Skates Agility 2-3 times per week
  4. Lifting… ???
