Went back to school on Monday and while most of the time was spent in meetings, I did do lot of walking. The leg feels amazing. I did not even think of it as I was doing things all week long. The only time it crossed my mind was when I had to get up on my little step stool, I still don't completely trust it and there is a tiny bit of pinching. I did however, take the stairs often. Sometimes all four flights. Wow! And it does feel good. Walking is fine. Stairs I still need to work on. Standing from sitting is fine. Yeah, I think we are definitely on the mend. I did start adding collagen peptide to my coffee and I think that may be helping some too.
So now I'm faced with the same dilemma from last week, I want to start working out but how do I do that? I haven't done Supernatural much this week, the last time I did it, I could still feel the calf muscle so decided to back off again. Monday and Tuesday I did hit my step goals and it really wasn't that hard. Tuesday I hit it before noon. I was tired when I came home last week, but not crazy exhausted tired. Just tired from having worked. One day, I think it was Tuesday, I came home and lounged in the pool reading. That was awesome. I believe that I am definitely on the mend and may be healed, but I still plan on going a little bit slowly so that I don't reinjure anything.
Which leads me back to my dilemma. How and when do I exercise? I am seriously considering starting back at square one and working out 2x a week for the first 4 weeks. I know that is not much, but I want to build strength slowly and not hurt myself. Which leaves me open to just go on Fridays and Sundays. So that's what I'll do. 2 days a week for 4 weeks plus Supernatural 5 days - any 5 days that I choose. Okay, I'm good with that. Going to put it on my calendar and start right in. Yes!!!!
