My injury

Friday, June 06, 2014

So after my class last week I was really gung ho and wanting to get back into my routine. Until the next morning when I woke up and I couldn't move my right arm. It got worse through the day and I think I pulled my pec and or bicep in my right arm. That put me out for a week! I couldn't move my arm at all without pain for nearly a week. I went back to the class on Tuesday (it was feeling better) but did things at my own pace so I wouldn't re injure myself. The pace is pretty quick and I think that is how I hurt myself in the first place, by going too fast! That is what put me off weights classes in the first place; The pace isn't controlled by me and that makes injury more likely.

I'm also bored with my routine so my routine isn't really there. I'm going to classes if I feel like it, walk if I feel like it, etc. Yesterday I went on a school trip and I climbed up a huge hill with my class so that was my workout for the day. It's nice not having any stress, but also easier to skip my workouts since I don't have a routine anymore. I'm going to try and fix that in the coming weeks by working out what I actually love to do, and sticking with that. It'll probably be a bit of weights, a bit of classes, maybe a bit of running again. Who knows!? Watch this space!

    emoticon Good thinking! If you do what YOU like to do, chances are it will become a regular thing that you look forward to, rather than something you "have" to do. The Phys Ed teacher was absent today, and rather than take my class back upstairs, I let them out onto the playground for a bit of unstructured play, and instead of just sitting and watching them, I started to walk around the playground. Pretty soon, I had a few children who were asking me what I was doing and walking with me. Walking! I said. Why? they asked. Because I like to walk was my answer. A wise child said Walking is good for you isn't it? I said oh yes it is. I got an unscheduled walk and talk in with part of my class today, some fresh air, and it was fun!

    Live and learn, right? I have so been there, done that! I like to start things off gung ho and very often that leads to injury.

    You have a great plan--go for it!

    Well now, MRS BUBBLE, there is something to be said for not going at things like a bull at a gate :-)

    Hopefully you will find things that you DO love (I am sure that you will) but remember .... baby steps, as in 'walk before you can run' sort of thing.

    It sounds like your alternative work-out was quite a change.
