Happy Sunday everyone! Hope you’re all having a lovely weekend, and here is my weekly fitness round up for anyone who is interested….
Monday – I went for a swim tonight with my mum. Talking to her makes the time go much quicker. I’m having problems with tight muscles and impact seems to aggravate my knee at the moment so swimming is a great activity for me at the moment. It’s nice to try something different too, and it doesn’t really feel like a workout!
Tuesday – Today I rested after a long day at work. I have been going through a phase of refusing to rest but it was stupid. It’s not big and it’s not clever.
Wednesday – My knee was still a bit sore today and I had a lot of stuff to do in town so I was walking around a lot but I didn’t actually hit the gym. I made sure to do some stretches at night time before bed.
Thursday – I went to my first Pilates class and fell in love with it. The instructor had us using foam rollers which was also a first for me. My back got a serious seeing to by that foam roller and I felt so much lighter and flexible at the end of the 45 minute class. I really can’t wait to get back next week! I felt so good I even went back to the gym in the evening to to a weights session for my back and shoulders.
Friday – As much as I love metafit, my IT bands are not loving the high impact movements so I had to pass on that tonight. I did go to another class called Willpower & Grace which is a kind of cardio version of yoga/tai chi with lots of good stretches. It turned out to be another great option for my tight muscles and I felt great afterwards without aggravating my injuries.
A successful week I think! Needless to say I have even resting all weekend too just to make sure I don’t overtrain and get injured again. I hope you guys have all had a wonderful week whatever you’ve been up to.
