*Some of you have been asking how I have been doing and how my surgery went. The surgery was very successful and exceeded our expectations for correction. I was diagnosed at 14 with scoliosis and by the time I graduated high school I had two 30 degree curves in my back. After 18 more years and 4 pregnancies my scoliosis had progressed to two almost 60 degrees curves and I had shrunken from 5’10” to 5’8″. It was progressing so I had to have surgery to stop it. So now I am straight and I have to take 3 months off but my recovery has been going really well and I am feeling better and better every day. It has been hard for me to post these WODs and not be able to do any of them but I will be back soon enough. Thanks for asking Mamas, thanks for caring.

    X-ray looks great, best wishes for a full recovery!

  2. Didn't think I had the time (before hubby went to work) or energy (up alot with kids last night) to work out today, and almost skipped it, until I read Jenni's story. Then I figured I could at least do something, so I tried and ended up fitting in two rounds, mostly walking, for 19:50. Not my greatest, but certainly a personal victory and I feel great!

    Thanks for sharing how you're doing, Jenni. Glad to hear you're doing better!

  3. 18:51 vs. 24:24 from last year!!! Shaved 5 1/2 min off time! Awesome! Glad your surgery went better than expected. You'll be back at it soon!!

  4. Glad recovery is going well!
    20:55 total
    5:05, 4:56, 4:54
    I'm quite the turtle when it comes to running. 11-12 min/mile is my norm. Got out of the comfort zone today 🙂

  5. 11:14 Stationary bike- so I doubled miles.. 3.01 miles total
    Then did a 10 minute (I'm guessing.) arm/ab workout!

  6. 16:00 – right around 4 min/each 800…then added 20 butterfly sit ups, 10 push ups and 20 full squats…great way to start the week!
    Glad surgery went well!

  7. So I ran three miles and held plank for one minute. Third day back from being sicker than I have been in years.

    Jenni – you have such a positive attitude. Glad you are feeling better!

  8. 3:49
    14:39 compared to 16:52 last time.

    Ran a mile cool down
    60 push-ups
    60 squats
    30 burpees

  9. Ran 2 mile warm up.


    Then 8 x 100 meter sprints

    1.5 mile jog

    50 push ups and 100 BF sit ups

    Jenni–you are strong and amazing. My thoughts and prayers are with you for a full speedy recovery.

  10. 4:06
    I know I did this one before, but didn't post my time.

    So glad you are on a road to recovery Jenni! The xray after surgery looks fantastic!

  11. 4:05
    I'm nothing if not consistent 🙂 Excuses for not being faster: New shoes, ran 9 yesterday, didn't find the lap button as quickly as I'd like, etc.

    My son has minor scoliosis…I'm happy you're straightened out 🙂

  12. I'm SO Glad you are feeling better, and that you still post these WODs for us. I know that has to be hard for you. 🙁

  13. I did "fight gone bad" subbing max double unders for row. I did the rx'd weight of 55# which was SO HARD and my reps show it.

    6 weeks until summer and I have my 15 year old home to babysit so I can do the running WOD's. No excuses.

  14. Due to severe thunderstorms I decided to spin for 5 miles. 4:01 minutes a mile!!

  15. 3:45, 3:55, 3:55 = 11:35

    Running Mamas – does it get easier? I felt like I was flat out sprinting but I obviously wasn't flying. 🙂

    Jenni – glad your recovery is going well! Good healing wishes to you!

  16. I hope your recovery is speedy! And I for one appreciate you posting these workouts!

  17. Wow your spine looks amazingly better! that's so great!

    (knees are still recovering)

  18. 4:41, 4:50,4:58. I know I'm such a slow runner!
    Jenni wishing you &your family the best & a speedy recovery to you. Thanks for all that you do! You're so inspiring!

  19. Boy there are some fast mamas out there! Question (and I think I know the answer) when we have WOD's like these are we suppose to run as fast as we possibly can?


    After that last one I was huffing and puffing!

  20. WOW! Jenni! I'm amazed you could walk let alone kill these WODS! I'm so happy the surgery went well, and I'm really thankful that you keep posting! Thanks! And get well soon!

    Half mile warm up.


    Then I ran 3.5 miles more at a gentle tempo pace.

  21. Jenni-you amaze me! Thank you for posting workouts for us mamas! Prayers continue for your complete recovery.

  22. Omg Jenni that's crazy! How wonderful your recovery is going so well.

    11:13 seconds then did some gymnastics ring work….ouch

  23. Get well wishes!
