Now that I've been discharged from PT I'm going to try and resume my original exercise schedule:
M - Tae Kardio at lunchtime, Body Pump Class in the evening
Tu - XC ski at lunchtime (if there is snow), Spinning in the evening
W - Tae Kardio at lunchtime, Body Pump Class in the evening
Th - Tae Kardio at lunchtime, Spinning in the evening
F- XC ski at lunchtime (if there is snow), Cardio & lifting @ home (or kayak pool session) in the evening
Sa - Playing outside (kayaking, XC skiing, snowboarding, road cycling, etc.)
Su - Playing outside (kayaking, XC skiing, snowboarding, road cycling, etc.)
Since there isn't snow at the moment in this hemisphere there won't be any XC skiing or snowboarding for a while. And given that I prefer my rotator cuffs intact there won't be any snowboarding AT ALL anymore except in good (powdery) conditions.
According to my HR monitor I'm not supposed to train until Friday (because I rode 100 miles on my bike last Saturday). But given my personality I know it isn't a good idea to take lots of rest days in a row on purpose because they tend to lead to lots of rest days in a row not on purpose.
So I did my last PT session yesterday and a spinning class last night but I did it gently without going all-out. I definitely felt the fatigue in there. I didn't have as much oomph to draw on.
Today I can't go to Tae Kardio but I will do Body Pump in the evening.
Tomorrow I won't be able go to Tae Kardio or spin class and plan on paddling in the evening instead.
As far as food goes, I seem to be in night-time munchy mode again so I had to dump the rest of the cornmeal and corn flour because I ended up cooking it as cereal last night. I don't think there's much else left in the house that takes as little time to cook, so I should be safe, for now.
Yesterday I made the mistake of starting the day with mangoes and spring rolls, which was too much carbs and not enough protein and seems to have set me up for cravings the rest of the day.
Today I started with my usual Greek yogurt, wheat bran, and whey powder and I feel a whole lot more sated.
