Tuesday - pushing too hard - need a rest
Tuesday, April 09, 2013
Sometimes you have to hit me over the head. I've been working out basically every day. Doing the bootcamp we do strength exercises every other day. Well on top of that I hit the gym and do 30-40 laps AND then a couple of laps of bicep and triceps exercises. I've been doing this now for a month.
Now the last couple of days my biceps and triceps have been tingling all the time. And it just hit me - I'm not giving my muscles a chance to rest. Which in strength testing is a must. I've literally been doing arm strength testing every day.
So I was just leaving to go to the pool and STOPPED. No pool tonight - maybe even tomorrow night. I'll stay at home and either hit the recumbent bike or cardio video.
This is going to drive me crazy as I've trained myself to swim. And swimming I find is very relaxing and stress buster.
