Today was finally a little more normal of a day. I had a personal training session scheduled, but I was a little nervous because my shoulder has still been hurting, ever since BLRC. But, she said she had a plan, and I trusted her. Good thing, too.
I started off with 20 minutes on the elliptical. I love that I'm still able to push to a higher level than I ever did pre-BLRC. And, by the time my session started, I was definitely warm. We started the session with some ab exercises, and then moved more into shoulder work. She had me do a bunch of rehab type exercises. By the time we finished, my shoulders we definitely warm from the exercises, but there was no sharp pain. That helped a lot!
We finished the session with a few ab/knee strengthening exercises. They were hard, and my quads were burning, but it was a really good session. And, for the rest of the day my shoulder felt really good.
I finished off the day with my regular Friday yoga class. It felt so good. I love that the class is fairly predictable and relatively low key. By the time I left the gym I was feeling like a relaxed noodle. And that was exactly what I needed.
So, overall, it was a great exercise day, and a great therapy day. Hopefully, I'll be able to sleep in tomorrow and get back to my 'normal' exercise routine. That would be a really, really good thing!
