This week's topic: What are you doing for exercise? Has it changed with the season? How long and how often are you exercising?
This week, I am actually back to some sort of a routine. Well, it is only Tuesday, but I feel myself getting back into the groove. Thanks to the wreck and surgery that followed, exercise was tossed to the side for a while (doctor's orders) and still is not up to what it was pre-injury, but doing some is better than doing nothing! My follow up appointment is on April 6th and I am hoping for a full release at that point. Of course, I have lost quite a bit of strength and lung capacity during all this, but I built them once before and it looks like I will have to do it again.
For now, I am sticking to cardio on MWF (and sometimes every other day too). Cardio consists of intervals on the bike, treadmill (just walking), or walking outside. I see people out running and find myself a bit jealous, but then I feel a twinge in my neck and shoulder, and my jealousy subsides. The other days of the week, I do standing pilates work, or something of that sort. I also started doing some core work, but have to be careful of how I am holding my head and my posturing.
I certainly am looking forward to really working my muscles again. For those of you who do not take full advantage of your abilities, get to it! Some of us would love to but currently cannot! Get out there and stop taking for granted what your body can do.
