Exercise is out, and I'm afraid! From yesterday's high, its been a steep trip down..

Tuesday, April 13, 2010

So, the darn hamstring has raised it's ugly head again. Ya, I finished Week 4 on Sunday and while I knew it was there..I managed..Then yesterday, I was so pumped from my success and it was sooooo sunny, that I wanted to go for a good, heart pounding walk, which I did..until half way through the leg tightened up, the pain right into the deep part of my right butt cheek..Yow! So , now, I off everything...
I gotta go get this assessed and find out the treatment. I am SO afraid of not doing cardio..of falling back into my old's so easily done..But, if I don't stop, I may cause damage that will keep me out for a very long time..
I do commit to choosing this "opportunity" to do some strength exercises, especially upper body and core..But, I gotta admit, I'm not a huge fan..I love my walk, run bike!!!
From such a high such a low today...
....SIGH...... emoticon

    I hope you will heal very quickly. I did a kick-boxing video recently and was able to get my heart rate up to the aerobic zone with punching alone, no legs. Maybe you could look into something like that. Just do what you can until you're all healed.

    While it's disheartening not to be able to walk, keep remembering the progress you've made so far and hopefully that will help keep you on track for the more frequently "monotonousity" of strength exercises. You can do it! I have faith in you!! emoticon
