I find it incredibly hard to re-build up to my gym routine when circumstance forces me into a few weeks away. I have only missed two weeks, but it feels much longer than that. And rebuilding from a lapse like that always feels like scaling a mountain.
My weights class last Thursday left my legs aching into the weekend. I may have been a bit over-enthusiastic as well.
Tonight I did a Pilates Reformer class, which involves a spring-loaded bed so that I can adjust the resistance as needed for a routine. And once again I think I’ve added a bit more resistance than I should have. But it feels great to sit slumped at the keyboard with no real desire to move. I’m just going to bask in this for a little while.
