I feel a bit like the tortoise in the story of the tortoise and the hare. I haven't gotten back to the fitness gym for 2 weeks, but have been doing exercises in the pool. Yesterday I finally pulled out a dvd and walked in my apartment. Then I did my PT exercises. Oh are my IT Bands tight and sore. The part of my IT Bands that hurt are from my knee to my hips. I don't have arthritis in my hips, which is a good thing. Just need to get those IT bands stretched.
Today is Sunday and I usually take Sunday off from my exercise routine, but decided I would walk and then do the PT exercises again. I used the foam roller again to stretch my IT bands. It was quite painful, although one side is worse than the other.
My apartment is small, but I don't use that as an excuse when I don't exercise. I have plenty of other ones!!
It also snowed today and I am feeling it in my joints. All the more reason to walk and stretch.
I also use the stability ball
when doing my PT exercises. That and the foam roller are right were I need them. Right out in the open in my living room. Staring right at me. I need that right now. I am battling some holiday depression and there is nothing better then some exercise to help with that.
Thanks for joining my journey or to those that follow regularly maybe I could get an encouraging spark mail. That sure would brighten my day. You know who you are. And I appreciate all my Spark friends!! You keep me coming back. Even when I don't feel like it!
