Working out with a broken wrist is not fun! But it was not as hard as I expected. On the elliptical, I rested my cast on the arm rests. With weights, I either did abs or legs, which don’t use my arms. I bet I built up a lot of strength in my right arm from holding it up so long! =)
One thing that was funny was I saw the doctor who put my cast on at the Y. I know he’s a runner because I wore my Swiss Days Race T-shirt to the doctor’s office and he said he’s run it before.
I have been brainstorming some circuit workout ideas that are injury-friendly. My perfect workout would be air squats, jumping jacks and wall sits, all of which do not depend on my arm. So I will try that this week and see how it goes.
I am NOT going to ask Ben for advice this time. I have had enough of his circuit workout ideas — especially those darn box jumps!
