I feel like I’m falling apart. Maybe it’s psychosomatic. My knee is clicking away, over the past few weeks I’ve been bothered by some kind of a pinched nerve in my neck that hurts when I try to twist my head around (like to back up a car), and when I sleep. My most recent complaint is my lower back. I must have tweaked it when I did my “bumps” workout. It was a little sore yesterday morning and I ignored it and rowed anyway. Big mistake. The rest of the day, I had a constant lower back ache, and if I twisted or leaned wrong, I’d get a sharper jolt of pain.
Anyway, it hurt enough that I had trouble sleeping. Rolling over was pretty painful. And I have a lot on my mind. So, I felt pretty lousy at 5:15 this morning when I got up.
I decided that rowing was a bad idea. So, it would be the tedium of the stationary bike this morning.
- 2 x 30′
- a couple minutes of stretching between
- easy pace: UT2 / UT1
The first 30 minutes, I just set the machine to manual and pedaled at level 14. The second 30 minutes, I did “rolling hills”, which was less scenic than the name implied.
Tomorrow: Knee Surgery. Guess we’ll call that a rest day.
