Day 1 (again!)

Wednesday, November 17, 2010

It is a good thing that we can always "start again"! Here I go again, Day 1 after my SECOND setback this year!! UUuuuggghhhhh!!! (I fractured my elbow in May if you remember!) I have not exercised since my last bike ride on August 14th!

Tonight I did 30 minutes in the indoor pool for the first time. All I could do was walk in the water, but it may be enough. I started to feel my innards arguing with me! So I will have to see how I feel tomorrow as to whether or not I go back again right away. Hopefully, I just gave it a gentle workout and I can continue.

Any recommendations or ideas would be welcomed. Now that I can almost carry on my daily activities without any pain/discomfort, I am finding myself more irritated by the need for patience in healing! Oh Well . . . I have to focus on getting better each day. I do see the milestones, so I do know that I am healing.

Here's to Day 2+!

    Let yourself heal and continue with the gentle exercise. If you push yourself too much you'll be back to square 1. Good luch!

    Walking in the water is great exercise. Use good form and the resistance of the water is giving your body a good workout. I think it is a great way to start back again. In fact after surgery in April, I was sent for aqua therapy much of which was walking in the water.

    Hang in there. Baby steps are hard, but you need to make sure you are fully healed before you go all out. It's always okay to start over, as long as your on your way!!
    Good luck!! emoticon

    But as long as you are breathing
    You can start all over again
    If your heart's beating
    You can start all over again
    Goodbye Sorrow, you can start all over again
    Hello Tomorrow, you can start all over
