Getting Back Into the Swing of Things

Since IMAZ, I have down squat.
Fave = slug.
I hit the recumbant bike at the gym once.
I hit the treadmill...once.
The elliptical...once.
The pool...maybe twice.
I did finally pick up my bike about a week ago.
But I haven't yet put the pedals back on her.

However, this week I actually decided to start getting back in shape again.
you know about Tuesday's Track Torture.
wednesday i did nothing.
thursday i hit a strength class. my legs were incredibly sore when I woke up and I really didn't want to go - but I thought about that wedding dress and was able to peel myself out of my ncie warm bed.
and what did we do - lots of jumps, lunges, calf raises
needless to say I spent the day yesterday walkign around the office with a limp in my step b/c my legs hurt so bad.
I had left my gym bag in my locker. After my morning workout I kew I would back after work for masters and a run - sounds good, right?
NOT.
so i left my things there. locked of course.
and this morning moseied back over to the gym, having the motivation since all my getting ready things - make-up, hair dryer, etc - were all in that locker.
so i met my friend Kat there for a little t-mill social hour.
NOT
i managed to squeak out a 15 minute run/walk. you rea that correctly...15 minutes - not miles...minutes.
my quads were cursing my name.
so i hit the recumbant bike for 15 minutes.
then managed to hit the weird lower back/oblique machine for lots of ab/core work.
i really liked it. ew.
so tomorrow i am going back and triyng some yoga.

it's weird not training for a big triathlon. i want to do so many things...and I can!

Sweet schedule! Recovery from an IM is such an individual thing. I am really surprised by people who are able to go back out for a ride or run a week after their race. I chalk that up to genetic freakiness...

tri-ing races not cases said...

Your new activities sound fun and that's the point of this year right??

Be patient. The best thing you can do is have fun! You don't have to swim/bike/run. All in due time.
