Tackle it Tuesday
I'll go ahead & admit...there didn't feel to be a whole lot of Tackle to my Tuesday, or well...much UMPH! I set my alarm for 6:30, but turned it off & rolled back over for 45 minutes...I NEVER do that on a normal day...I guess it comes with Summer Break & being injured. No structured schedule!
I finally get up, then drag myself to the couch. It was dreary outside. I had a headache. I just wanted to be lazy! BUT, I finally forced myself to get up & get ready for the gym. I didn't make it to the gym until close to 10am, but I MADE IT!
I won't lie...I did NOT want to be at the gym. My head hurt. My legs felt tight. I just wasn't feeling a workout. But I managed to force myself to do an hour & a half of arms & legs. Afterwards, I was glad I went, but it didn't help my headache one bit.
Came home from the gym, grabbed a bite to eat, then fell asleep on the couch for about 3 1/2 hours. I was not planning on napping for that long! I guess my head was hurting so bad I just needed to sleep it off.
Of course I didn't get much accomplished around the house. I woke up about an hour & a half before my husband returned home from work. So I had to make it look like I had done something. I washed a load of clothes...couldn't that count as exercise? You have to bend over to get the clothes out of the hamper, then squat & lift the clothes to carry them to the laundry room. Right? Then I loaded the dishwasher...more squatting & bending to load it. After that I vacuumed...bend to plug in cord, push/pull motion, move some furniture, squat to pick up dog toys & hubby's shoes. If only I went at & tackled my housekeeping skills like I do my workouts...I'd be a much better housekeeper!
Later on in the evening, I did all my PT stretching & strengthening exercises for my ITBS. I'm getting so sick of doing them, but I know in the long run it will pay off! Sick of being injured! I just want to R-U-N!
Tomorrow is another attempt at running...hoping to go for a little over a mile at a time. I'm all taped up & ready to go.
How did you Tackle your Tuesday?
