going to see if I can play hockey again tonight. Back is still a little off but very different from anything I have had before. I plan on going to warm ups and will see how it feels. I am hoping to get back to working out again soon too and moving is the only way to get there.

Back on a break

So I pulled a muscle in my back while playing hockey on Monday and will not be doing any workouts again until it is healed. This is a different muscle and pain than what I have had in the past with my back so no worries of return to those days. I just need to wait a bit for it to heal before I do my workouts again.

Hit by a Car

I did the workout again on Wednesday and got through all 3 circuits but had a bit of a problem with the run. I dropped my rest time to :45 and tried that. After 5 intervals my phone rebooted and that is what I use as a timer so I had to wait a minute for it to restart. I was feeling like I had been hit by a car at that point and was breathing heavy and short and almost just gave it up and went inside. I eventually was able to get it going again and finished up with not too much trouble but those first 5 were a bitch for some reason. We will see how it goes tomorrow. I am on business travel and will be working out alone in the fitness center at the hotel here so that should be fun. I checked the fitness center out today and they have a pull up bar so I am good. Will let you know how that goes.

I guess I skipped out on blogging last week. I did the same workout 3 days last week and made it through all three circuits. I slowed down to concentrate heavily on form and ended up with a great workout all three days and was sore the following day to prove it. I feel pretty strong on the interval sprints and will drop down the rest to :45 seconds this week. This morning I was just feeling really tight and so we did the X-Stretch video from P90X which is about an hour of stretching and it felt really good. I will go back to the other workout either tomorrow or Wednesday but we should work the stretching and/or yoga in there on Saturday's or something because it is certainly helpful.
