Day 3 at the Gym
Sunday, December 31, 2017
I am still not doing a full workout. I am not kidding anyone, least of all myself. But, this was my 3rd straight day to walk through the doors and do something.
I thought I would try the recumbent bike, but headed back to the elliptical for my 3" warmup. That last minute was tough! Level one all the way, so I obviously have lots of room for improvement!
Today was supposed to be core, but I quickly found out that I may need to rethink this at least until after surgery and post-surgery clearance. I did like the ab machine, though. The pain just surprised me.
I like the rowing machine, too. I can feel tension in my shoulders is dissolving. Tension I have had so long I barely know what it's like not to have it!
Today, I discovered the stretching area. I really like the precor machine. The hamstring stretch was quite therapeutic. I did not try all the exercises, but I will build on today's experience.
The back stretch machine is heaven! I end my workout with that every time.
The last thing I do is update my spiral notebook - what did I do for cardio, what did I do for strength and what did I do for flexibility. As I move forward, there will be alternating days - I know not to try to do everything every day, but I have a long way to go to get to that level.
Feeling mostly good, physically, and feeling great about myself!
