I’ve literally tried to write multiple posts over the last couple of weeks. I always get so excited about them but then I get distracted and never go back to them. Even when I have a moment to go back and write them, the information I wanted to write about no longer seems relevant because it’s days or maybe weeks old.
I wanted to blog about all the awesome workouts I’ve been doing, until I injured myself at last Thursday’s session. At the time, I had no idea I would be in the pain I was on the following day. I was actually feeling pretty AWESOME Thursday evening.
My PT workout wasn’t complicated but it certainly made me hella tired.
1000m row – 10 pushups
900m row – 9 pushes
…. and so on until ….
100m row – 1 pushup
then did 12 reps x 3 sets of
lat pull downs
ezy bar bicep curls
That was it. Doesn’t seem like much until I saw 5.5km row and 55 pushes. That makes it sound worse.
Anyway, I woke up on Friday and I was in a whole lot of trouble. I could hardly walk… at all. I still needed to get to work which included getting ready and driving my car. In hind sight, I should have used my crutches. That would have assisted the walking, but not the sitting down and getting back up.
After working at a standing bench for most of the morning, I took some anti-inflams which helped A LOT. I also rang my myotherapist, in which I have an appointment to see tomorrow. The pain is on the same side as my dodgy hip flexor (caused my my ACL reco we think). It was also in parts of my groin/adductor muscles. All I can think of is the pain I am going to be in tomorrow with the myo digging in around there, seeing what is going on. NO FUN! BIG HURTIES! I tell you that.
I didn’t train all weekend and I didn’t train tonight. Ever since my course finished, I hate missing Monday training. I always think the week is better if I can get to the gym on a Monday. Let’s hope everything is okay tomorrow and I can get to the gym in the afternoon. There might even be a change that I can make it to footy training tomorrow. That would be a stress release.
My sessions at the new gym are going great. I am getting more confident there and my eating has been so much better. In the last 4-6 weeks, I’ve lost 3kg and 10.5cm. I don’t have mountains to move but I am feeling better in myself. My work pants were even a little baggy in the legs today which made me do a little inside happy dance. The last time I put them on they still fitted but I was uncomfortable in them.
It would seem my writer’s block on this post has faded and that maybe I can keep writing. However, I need to sleep and you good people need to as well. Unless you are on the other side of the world, then you just go on with your day . 🙂
