This week, however, I'm going to share with you what I didn't do.
|Sally won gold!!|
To start with, I didn't do much exercise. I watched a lot of exercise .. Olympics, District Sports Carnival, soccer training.
|Miss 10 won her high jump event!!|
My excuse for not partaking myself .. wait for it .. I've pulled a hammy! Seriously, the physio believes that I have several micro tears in the muscle fibres of my hamstring .. right up there at the top ( in my butt ). It really has compromised my movement .. I still can't demonstrate a proper squat when I'm training my clients!
As I managed to attain my injury early last week I have been allowed to commence some gentle stretching and strengthening exercises this week. To me, this means I can do a jog / walk combo on the treadmill for 20 minutes on Wednesday followed by some stretching and strengthening. Today's effort was increased to 30 minutes with the jog interval extended to 5 minutes .. I even picked up the pace just a little bit! Again followed by some stretching and strengthening. Yep, I'm really on top of the training this week!
I also didn't do my "healthy eating plan" very well. I may have allowed myself to indulge in some extra treats just a bit too much or even a lot.
You will be pleased to know however that I have seen the error of my ways ( evidenced by an increase in the display on the scales ) and am now back onto a "healthy eating program" that will change the display on the scales!
Oh and did I mention that I "overstretched" my hamstring whilst I was having a recovery day .. doing yoga. It will not stop me doing yoga though!
Have you had any "injuries" lately that have curtailed your mojo?
