It was peak hour at the gym this morning. I don’t usually do a weights session on a Wednesday but because I’m having brekkie with two of my favourite buddies tomorrow I had changed my schedule around this week. It seems that hump day must be THE day to do the gym thing – there were people everywhere.
And it was arms and shoulders day for me. There seemed to be endless reps and sets of shoulder presses, upright rows, triceps dips, and biceps curls. By the end my arms were like jelly and even several hours later I was still lacking fine motor control! You know you’ve had a good session when that happens!
I had my physio appointment this afternoon – I was worried about what he was going to say about my lack of progress in the hammy department but he surprised me. In fact he was a lot more optimistic about my progress than I was. It’s also a possibility that sitting on the upright bike at the gym (with their oversized seats) on Saturday may have aggravated the tendon and set up local irritation and swelling. That will teach me. In future I’ll stick to my own bike on the wind trainer.
Also, as part of my jog/walk program for New York he wants me to follow the Couch to 5km program. This will provide structure to building up my running.
So here we go again…..
