On the menu tonight:
Shoulder & Hip Prehabilitation
ESD1 (12 minutes of cardio)
and AIS stretching (stretches assisted by rope)
For my ESD, I threw on my running pants and went out for a 10 minute mile, plus two more minutes. My heart rate was up too high too often, but I felt nearly good. My breathing was off still, but I don’t have a doctor’s appt for a little while to come.
What was really cool was that I sprinted twice for 30-60 seconds. Just flat out bolted. Man, I felt strong! In days past, I would’ve felt ruined right out of the gate, but I’m starting to get that magical second wind kind of feeling somewhere near the end of my 12 minutes, and I used that.
I’m eating a serving of protein after my workouts now, because that’s supposed to be very important, timing wise, for building back lean muscle tissue. I’m hoping that the calories burned during my cardio efforts balances that off.
Oh, and I got just under 7 miles today on my pedometer. There’s a little rule of thumb I read somewhere that if you can do 10000 steps a day for 10 weeks, you’ll lose 10% of your bodyfat. I’m trying to keep the 10000 step part of that equation just for goodness.
How are you? Why aren’t you writing me?
