There is definitely something wrong with me

This morning I skipped my run and just did regular strength training. It’s me getting back into it so I wasn’t expecting too much. I also have this weird strain in my chest. Even with light weights on the bar it feels like 1 strand of muscle is being pulled from the top of my left pec. I guess for now, I’ll just make sure I’m properly stretched and take it easy on the weight used.

That’s not the problem though. The problem is that I want to run. The problem with that is I have always hated running. Hated. It’s definitely throwing my brain for a loop. Stupid brain. Stupid legs.

Spreading it out

These shin splints are killing me. I think for a couple weeks I am going to run every other day and start back with weight training on the days in between. I don’t want to drop running entirely, and I’m afraid if I stop doing something for any amount of time it will be a pain in the ass to get back into it. So hopefully running ever other day for a couple weeks will help in healing these fuckers.

I was able to run for 3 miles this morning. I definitely do not want to lose my momentum.

Slowly getting back on my feet

I’ve been running jogging stumbling on a treadmill for the last 3 weeks. I initially built a desk that I can quickly strap to the top of the treadmill in the hopes of being able to walk my way through the day. Fuck that. I am not coordinated enough to walk and work on a laptop at the same time. I only had damn thing set to 3mph, but it just wasn’t working all that great. The treadmill I am using is over 10 years old, so I wonder if it’s not as cushioned as a newer one. It was nearly impossible to move the mouse via the trackpad with any sort of precision. I decided I would rather just try and jog.

Cardio : Day 0 – Lateral Treadmill

Boredom. It is ridiculously boring to just tread on the treadmill. Even if I watch a movie on the iPad while I’m doing it, it just does my head in. I’d much rather sit and code. Too bad I am not coordinated enough to have a standing desk. I don’t think I could sit there and do my work while walking on a (regular) treadmill. I’ve created a stats page to graph my weight, bodyfat, and bmi. I still have a bit of work to do on it, but for now it works.

Day 0, because I’m going to start this shit all over again. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

It never fails

I swear it never fails. Every fucking time I attempt to get off my ass and get back into it, I end up doing something that throws a wrench into things.

I’ve had back issues for years. It all stems from an accident I had well over 10+ years ago. Side to side it’s straight, but from front to back my curve is incorrect, and because of that, it really doesn’t take much to throw things out of whack. It can be as simple as a turn to the side or picking something up regardless of how light or heavy it is.

I’ve been told to stretch out my hamstrings, and doing so would release some of the pressure on my spine. I really need to get into the habit of stretching them daily.

Until I can get it sorted I guess I’ll try to do what I can by hitting up the treadmill. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
