last week was really hard for - I was still recovering from my calf injury and while I had all these grand goals of still working out the upper body - it failed tremendously as I learned (again) that it can take a LOT of energy to heal. as someone who was averaging 6-9 miles of walking a day (this includes hamster wheel workouts as well as just walking out and about) the fact that I was in tears with exhaustion after barely eeking out 4 miles...
so I laid low and did the PT exercises I was given and I could walk a bit with out pain so it was all good until Saturday when my hip started to complain loudly and I decided to check out a gym that had a groupon deal that I got and figured now was as a good a time as any to start using it.
so I did 35 minutes at a medium speed and intensity on the hamster wheel. Lifted using the machines (didn't want my form to go bad due to the bad leg) and then swam for 30 minutes - it was glorious - I forgot just how much I love swimming.
this week I want to swim a couple more times (I did this morning) and get back to lifting a bit as well. I like the gym well enough, but not for the price (for that sort of money it should be better maintained IMHO) but I will use the heck out of the deal I go
so how about you folks?
