Day 15: I’m BAAAAACCCKKK!!!!!
March 8, 2010
To my amazement, other than some knee tenderness, after being gone from the gym for sooooo many days (sick as a dog) I got right back in the groove! I didn’t even have to start over at day one with heavy breathing and the feeling of imminent death!
Wooo Hooo! Finally, after what felt like an eternity, I am back at the gym today! I am still sniffly and tired but was determined to get in there and do SOMETHING today.
I did about 32 minutes (instead of the full 40) at a reduced speed (2.8 vs 3 MPH) because I was worried about overdoing it the first time back, and my knee turned out to be a little tender still. I didn’t wrap my knee because after so many days off it felt like new again… that is until about 18 minutes into my walk. I will wrap it well next time.
Anywho, it’s just amazing to me how much I missed being in there. I missed the feeling of accomplishment it gives me, I missed the energy it gives me and I missed the feeling of knowing I am doing good things for my body. Huh, who’d a thought!
