Facing the challenge of forced inactivity
Monday, September 27, 2010
So, after an exciting time completing my 5K run, I have been advised to take a week off both running & biking.
With the spasm in my piriformis muscles ( deep in the butt ;-p,) the therapist and chiro I have been seeing agree that rest is likely the best option..Re-evaluation to occur Wed. this week.
Boy, it's tough when you have worked so hard to make physical activity a part of your regular , daily routine..
Okay, that' s enough of the negative.....
On the plus side I am trying to re-acquainted with my bowflex ( upper body strength training only) . With focus in this area, maybe some visible changes will encourage me to continue this form of exercise ( something I have always struggled with) More time for planning and tracking meals, and making healthy eating choices!!
Today starts a new challenge..I CAN do this!! I will not slip back to my old ways!!
