Tomorrow I am back to reality. I took Monday as a complete rest day. Went food shopping after work than headed home. After the days worth of work I was simply exhausted. I actually wound up wearing sneakers to work since my legs were aching so bad. In the middle of the day I had to take a trip to a job site and measure. Normally this would be no problem, but the act of standing than squatting a million times to take measurements and sketch the existing conditions was quite the task! Oddly enough, I felt like it actually helped a little bit. Plus, it got me out of the chair that I sit at most of the day and up and walking around.
I coudnt wait for bed last night, but for some reason I just couldnt sleep. I tossed and turned all night long. Everything felt extremely tight and for some reason my mind was racing. Its been a while since I have had a night like that. When the alarm went off I knew I had to get moving... I was already awake.
Knowing I wasnt going to do the WOD I showed up at the gym for some mobility and stretching. I started from the bottom and worked my way up. Did some calf and thigh rolling followed by some lower body stretching. Than I moved to the hip mobility stretches with the band as well as the frog stretch. I could have sat all day in the hip mobility stretch! Felt so good.
Moved onto back with the lax ball, and than the shoulders. I used the PVC for some shoulder openers and than mobility against the rack. After that I used the band and stretched my shoulders that way. As I was getting further through the stretching things were loosening up so I was feeling pretty good. Tomorrow I will be facing my first WOD of the week.
Jump right back in!!
