Another Day, Another Pain

Day 9 – It’s a real pain when you head out to the gym and it is frigid; but, like all the others, that’s just one excuse among many, many more. Today was a lot like yesterday except that it started much earlier–that’s par for the course.  After another 3 hours of fighting with a buffer and a school bus route out on the east side of the county, my gym time this evening went pretty well, just not as high energy as I was expecting.

Beyond the inconvenient pain of cold weather, I’ve stressed my muscles about as hard as I can, especially in my back. So tonight I spent a lot of time walking and stretching. Sometimes, a good workout does not depend on a big cardio burn. It’s a good thing ’cause I didn’t have one tonight. Nope, only about half of what I’m used to doing. On the other side of that, my back feels a lot better as do my arms and legs after spending time on a foam roller and using elastic straps to stretch some old, tired muscles.

Tomorrow is another day, Day 10 to be exact and 1/3 of this little project will be complete. Don’t give up, don’t give up. . .
