Couldn't Wait....

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

Last night, after doing mostly nothing except hanging with my Dad and my sister and my daughter, I found myself sitting on the edge of my bed and staring at my dumbbells. Next thing I knew, I was in the midst of 5 sets of 12 reps of curls. I had sworn I would not do any strength training on the upper body until being okayed by the doc, but this felt good, it felt right. Granted, I was only using my 5lbs weights, but DAMNNNN did it feel good to do anything vaguely resembling exercise with the right arm and not have soreness. I think staying with light weights will complement what my doc wants me to be doing to improve range of motion and emulates the demands put on my arm and shoulder at work (I've been VERY careful to not overdo things at work with the injured wing). I'm hopeful. Now, off tothe gym and then work. The legs are scheduled for some tender loving torture....
