Today is the last day of summer break. Tomorrow it is back to school for 6 days of professional development and then the kids return. Yay!! It's actually been a pretty good summer. I got some rest. I read some books. I got some work done. Overall it was very good. Very restful and relaxing and I think I'm ready to begin the new year.
On the leg front. I have not been to the gym since Monday. On my last post, I said how my legs felt so bad after working at school on Monday. Well, I went to school on Wednesday and worked and my legs were tired, but did not feel like they did on Monday. Which leads me to believe that I just need to get used to being on my feet again. Looking at my steps; Monday 7,300, Tuesday 3.500, Wednesday 5.600. So Tuesday I spent most of my day at my desk working on school things. Wednesday I was back in the classroom moving furniture. Thursday I didn't put my watch on for most of the day so that is not even close. I have not been using the leg much and it is definitely feeling good. No pain, no pressure or tension in the muscle. I can get up from sitting and just move without having to warm the leg up first. Overall it's feeling pretty darn good. I have been doing Supernatural the last 2 days. I am dying to workout and so I've been doing it but sitting in a chair. It works. Maybe not as well as standing, but it works. So at least I've been able to break a sweat and get some movement in. I want to go back to the gym but I don't know when I should do that. Rest the leg some more? Go a couple of weeks without pain? Go and see what happens? I just don't know. I want to go to the gym a couple of days before school. I figure, if I can go to the gym around 4:30ish, work out for 30-40 minutes, come home a little after 5, walk Mavy for 20 minutes or so, hit the shower by 5:30 and be out the door by 6:15. That should work. And I don't want to do it every day, at most 2 days a week. Because I have 3 days on the weekend to go to the gym. So maybe do that on Wednesday and Thursday and then Saturday and Sunday. Or I could follow the prescribed days and do Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. Then I would only be going 1 school day. Maybe I'll try that initially and see what happens. And I'll just start over with the program. Well, if I start over the first 4 weeks are only 2 days a week. So for the first month I could do Friday and Sunday. Hmmm....lots of options, lots to think about, lots of possibilities. Right now though, it's time to walk Mavy. He's been patiently laying here waiting for me.
