I got a little motivated today.
I go through spurts of this every time I'm injured and can't do the activities I really want to. instead I throw myself into some alternate/cross-training/rehab activity. It usually doesn't last long.
At the gym this morning I did a little cardio on the elliptical trainer and then did it again at lunch. I know, EXTREME. It's how I roll.
The IMA is an incredible facility. After my lunch cardio session I spent some time in the sauna. I would LOVE a sauna at home.
Did I mention that I went to the eye doctor (that's optometrist if you want to impress people at a party kids) this morning? I think I finally need glasses. Just another overt sign of aging! Now I get to be that guy who loses his glasses all over the place as my memory fails as well.
I just went super mellow on the elliptical, the goal is not to hurt my IT band and prolong this already too long recovery.
