Moving right along
Lately my life seems to be returning to me piece by piece.
On Sunday I took a Les Mills Class. Bodyflow. Les Mills is an interesting concept. It’s a set of classes that change every 90 days. I’ve done the Body Pump before and that class is fantastic. I was less excited by Body Flow. It’s low impact and not too difficult actually. That said there was a Yoga portion of the class that I found quite challenging. My back doesn’t allow for such things. I did the class with a friend and it was nice to see her again.
I also think I am not totally fond of group fitness. I feel like we are all trying and also all comparing.
After that I hit the pool for some laps. It was a super nice day. The swimming was enjoyable.
Monday Was pretty great. I actually went to the pool in the morning, and swim a short workout. That made my day go better overall, so I need to try to keep doing that.
In the evening, I ran again. 2.0 miles slowly on the Treadmill. The GYM is FULL to the breaking point. I do not remember it ever being that crowded. We’ll see how long it lasts. I continue my stupid need to tell the world I am injured, not a January-ist. After the TM, I did a modified shorter workout, about 7 instead of the 10-12 exercises I normally am doing these days. I wasn’t feeling super strong and I had some pain issues, so after a second set of step ups.
I quit and went to ice my back. I wanted to talk to the coach too because it had been SO long since I had. I said hi to him and he gave me kind of an awkward smile. I wasn’t sure about it, so I iced, contemplated what that smile meant…. You know the whole “What did he mean when she/he said, looked at me like that/etc
When I finished I decided to just ask about wether massage was an option at this point. I asked if I could ask a question and he looked tense. But then I said, do you think I can get a massage? And he relaxed, he had about a 30 minute conversation, all the while he was working with a delightful lady who I enjoyed meeting as well. He doesn’t want to start me on a training plan yet (ha ha ha) because I can barely run and technically I am still having surgery. But of course we both agreed that this healing even not at 100% is a freaking miracle.
Maybe the Catholic Church would not certify it as a miracle…but I know that the surgeons were thinking this looked surgical, and yet I have improved….
Today… I got my massage… not so sure that was the brightest idea.
I also managed a 25 minute cycle on the stationary. Still moving forwards as best I can…
