“Sometimes the most urgent thing you can possibly do is take a complete rest”
Okay, maybe it’s not technically confinement, but it may as well be. Someone should just go ahead and lock me up because not being able to exercise has been DRIVING ME CRAZY.
Then, as if life were taunting me, the gym called me today because my payment didn’t process for the third month in a row (ever since I updated to my new credit card). They needed me to come in person, so I hauled myself over there on my way home from work to fix the issue. I was definitely having some serious exercise envy watching everyone workout. I would have been happy even to do a little cardio, but I was a good girl and didn’t risk it- even when G-Dawg showed up after his run or offered to do some lifting. (He quickly remember my shoulder and apologized when I
shot him a dirty look reminded him I couldn’t)
On an up note, I ran into Mike while I was there AND HE TOTALLY MADE MY NIGHT! He said a client of his was in the gym Saturday when we were lifting, and she just happened mentioned to him that there were two guys doing some really sloppy pushups and getting completely shown up by a girl. Mike said he knew right away it had to be me based on the description she gave. It definitely cheered me up to hear that I was, in fact, actually kicking their butts at something even while nursing my trashed shoulder and feeling like a wimp. It was absolutely the nicest thing anyone could have said to me (THANK YOU MIKE!!!). lol Plus, I know he wasn’t making it up just to make me feel better because he was clearly excited to tell me.
Tonight I’m going to try some time with the foam roller to see if it helps the knee. Mike agreed with my plan to lay off Insanity for the rest of the week and really give my body time to recover. It’s somewhat fortunate that this happens to be a week where my work shifts are all scheduled on boot camp days, so at least I ‘m not missing days I could have made otherwise.
Have a great night everyone!!!!
