Today was one of those inspired days I referred to a while back. One of those days where you try to fit in as much 'stuff' as you can. For me, 'stuff' usually means exercise.
Ready, set, go!
I went to the gym in the morning and got on the elliptical trainer. I again increased the incline and resistance a little from what I did yesterday and guess what, it woke up my IT band. Suck. Today was not an easy workout, keeping my cadence up with the increased load was tough.
I rode my bike to work and then at lunch hopped on the Expresso exercise bike in the IMA. These bikes are about as much fun as you can have while riding a stationary bicycle. Seeing as I have not done this in a while and my IT band is not 100% I opted for a somewhat shorter course. I didn't go easy but I also didn't kill it. Quality workout, check.
After riding home I went to Breathe Hot Yoga again for another practice. I must be doing something wrong because these sessions are kind of hurting my back instead of helping. Talking to Shelley she's convinced that I'm trying too hard. I do have a hared time moderating my effort and frequently when it's best to hold back and learn I forge ahead. In this case I might be bending too much for my already injured back.
