It’s already the weekend and what a week it’s been. It’s been hard I won’t lie, the physio is gruelling, and Wednesday was a much welcomed break from all exercise.
Wednesday saw us wave goodbye to the youngest daughter who was up Manchester for her early birthday celebrations!!
So there I was waving her off, knowing it’s practice for when she leaves for real next month! Eek, it’s coming round so fast it’s scary.
Me and hubby planning a fun filled few days, of eating out and lots of films too.
We ate at #egorestaurant with delicious hanging kebabs. On the Thursday.
Friday arrives and it’s official physiotherapy appointment, and I’m feeling a tad sore from the gruelling physio I’ve been doing at home. Pleased I’ve done Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday without too much fuss.
This appointment we did, not a lot as I’m still very sore, and after assessment, it’s decided that this week doing 2 sets, is clearly too much for me to do. So under advice I’m going back to 1 set only.
- Stationary bike level 2 x 3mins
- Ball squeeze hip bridges x 20reps
- Single leg hip bridges x 10reps
- Side leg raise (ankle weighted) x 10reps
- Prone lying Knee raise (ankle weighted) x 10reps
- Kettle bell squats x 15reps
- Walking lunge with dumbbells x 15reps
- Duck walking (green banded) x 15reps
So I’m a bit gutted that I’ve overdone it, but I can see that I have and that the old adage no pain no gain does NOT apply to us hippies. Super frustrating when you just want to be active and normal.
So this weekend is all about hot water bottle, ibuprofen gel, ibuprofen tablets and lots and lots of rest (if possible)
