It's been a busy week this week, and I'm glad to say I've gotten four workouts in over 5 days. I skipped going to the gym on Tuesday as both my back and knee were sore from the day before so I just let it rest. I'm trying to follow the doctor's orders, trying is the operative word. Sometimes I'm just too stubborn! The doctor said if the knee starts to hurt than stop....to me that means, finish my work out, go home, shower change and then ice it. Somehow I think he actually means, when it hurts, that's the end of the workout, but I've lost so much ground in the past six months that I need to get it back. Before I started swimming for my cardio, I was up to level 9 on the elliptical workout programs. I've felt frustrated several times this week when I try to push the level on the elliptical upwards but end up having to move it back to level 2 or 3.
I feel that I have taken a big step back with my fitness, but I'm back and I'm on track and I'm ready to rock my workout!
