Sunday – short walk on the beach, 60 minute yogaglo – yin style
Monday – 340 dh swing ladder w/12kg. First workout post pain episodes. Feel it in my lats after a week of no swinging. Was good to get back in the game. 60 minute restorative yoga class.
Tuesday – 30 yogaglo, joint mobility x2, 3 planks, 5/5 lunges, 1/1 TGU
Wednesday – 65 min bush walk (gorgeous!), 300 sh & dh swings (TR 2013 #2 workout)
Thursday – 50 min road walk, planks, lunges, TGU, yoga
Friday – 50 min bush walk, JM & foam rolling
Saturday – 90 minute kettlebell PT session with RKC in Canberra. I’ll write about what I learned later in the week. It was an excellent session and I’m pumped to put some of his drills to good work.
So, tomorrow, Monday – I’m back in the game of doing kettlebell workouts. I’ve decided to cycle back to week 3 of Lauren Brook’s program. Do weeks 3,4,5 & 6 then take another de-load week. I’m going to add a few things to the basic program.
On the JM/AR (Joint Mobility/Active Recovery) days, I’ll do a variety of the drills I learned this weekend.
On the workout days, I’ll add 5/5 lunges that Tania has suggested and 3/3 TGU to lunge position. IF I have energy and I think I’m up for it, I will do UP TO 100 additional swings on workout days – IF the LB workout doesn’t include any swings. I really like swings – and I REALLY like what I learned this weekend about ‘hard style’ swings so I don’t want to let that knowledge go to waste – which it will if I don’t practice it.
As far as the pain – totally and 100% gone for a week now. I’m still not 100% convinced that it was muscular. I’ve talked with a few people and done some research and I think it may be something else (gallbladder?) so I have an appointment with my MD in a week to have everything checked. Hopefully it was muscular but on the off chance it wasn’t – it’s worth checking out.
One last note……I am now in need of a belt in order to keep my jeans up around my waist. Next goal: for them to be too loose to wear even WITH a belt. Slow and steady – not getting crazy. It feels good.
