Alright people, I’m all for sounding like a broken record because often times I do. But I much prefer it when it’s full of Razzle Dazzle and not the Frazzle. That being said, my activity has been sidelined…again. There are two reasons for this: the first is a ridiculous number of meetings at work this week took the place of my workout time (I workout during my lunch break at work in the gym we have there). The second is that I put my back out…pretty badly. I had nerve impingement issues when I was pregnant with Fit Boy but those didn’t hit until the final weeks and were manageable. This time, I’m in some serious pain…I’m shuffling around like my 91 year old grampa. Not happy. Thankfully, some days are more manageable than others so I haven’t give up entirely. After all, I’m just over 50km away from my movement goal for this year and I want to reach it so badly!
Here’s how my week shaped up:
Monday: 20k bike ride on the stationary bike at the gym (which yielded some pointing and laughing-like behaviour from a group of executives touring the gym…)
Tuesday: Bootcamp baby! I only have 2 bootcamp classes left. I’m going to miss it because it’s a good workout for me and I’m doing it with a friend which always makes it more enjoyable.
Wednesday: Rest Day. Also was day one of intense back/butt pain.
Thursday: Meetings kept me from the workout I had planned. Back was still pretty sore.
Friday: Back throbbing, couldn’t walk to the gym. Pretty sad considering it’s in the building next to mine and I don’t even have to go outside to get there.
Next week, I’m not sure what will happen. As I’m typing this, I have a throbbing back but on the off chance that I get some relief, I’m keeping my workout schedule the same as last week:
Monday-> 40 min bike ride on the stationary bike at the work gym.
Tuesday-> 15 minute elliptical warm-up, 30-45 minutes upper body weights. Bootcamp in the evening
Wednesday-> Day off work, focus on fun activities w/ Fit Boy, if it’s warm, trip to the park, if not, possible indoor playground
Thursday-> 40 minute power walk/wog
Friday-> 20 minutes elliptical, 30 minutes lower body weights.
