Despite getting 13+ hours of sleep between Saturday and Sunday, I was still extremely tired on Sunday evening and ended up in bed BEFORE 9 pm! Can you believe it? With all of that sleep, you’d think that I’d have been up all night but I slept straight through until this morning.
I got up at my normal time this morning and decided that I’d just go on the arc trainer… nothing crazy… no intervals. I managed to pull my groin muscle while running in Florida so I am trying not to do anything too crazy so that it can heal. It definitely felt much better after two full days of rest but I noticed that as I increased the incline on the arc trainer it definitely hurt a bit so I quickly lowered it back down to a manageable incline.
So, now that I realize that it still hurts, I am going to do some icing tonight for about 20 minutes. I am trying to avoid advil or any other anti-inflammatory because it is so much better than it was a few days ago but hopefully with a bit of icing it will be a speedier recovery.
After the cardio workout, I spent about 30 minutes lifting weights… I did a full body workout – legs, arms, back, abs, glutes, etc. It felt good to lift again as I hadn’t really been doing to much strength work in Florida. One of the best things about being home again is the routine! It felt good to get up this morning and get started on my normal workout.
Do you like routine?
