Basically after my first weight session this week, I felt pretty sore which was expected since I only got in 2 sessions last week and 1 the week before. My plan was to rest a day and then get back into it. But on day 2 when I was walking to work, my left hamstring started cramping up all of a sudden (I was crossing an intersection!). It hurt so bad that I basically limped the rest of the way to work! Then it kept happing like twice more the same day and 3 more times the day after. I'm sure you all have experience muscles cramps at one point or another, and know how painful it is. Even after the cramp is over, the muscle is left torn and tender. I was literally crying from the pain. This almost never happens to me, and for it to happen 2 days after my workout is very strange! I could barely walk after it happened, so forget about the gym. I was googling about causes of muscle cramps, and apparently nobody really knows. There are theories, but no real scientific evidence supporting any. None of the theories fit me (working out without stretching, dehydration, etc.) so I guess I'll never really know.
Today I finally felt like I was getting back to normal so I went back to the gym. I took it easy, but for some reason the workout still killed me. So, that makes it only 2 workouts total this week. =( I think that barring any weird circumstances, I should be able to get back into it next week and start month 9 of my Get Glutes program!
By the way, did you watch the finale of Game of Thrones tonight?? I don't want to put any spoilers in here, but woah! Didn't see that coming. So many cliff hangers! I'm sad that I have to wait a whole year for the next season to air! I did start reading the books though. I'm on book 2 now. The dude needs to hurry up and finish the last 2 books because I'm impatient lol.
What I did: Since I only did workouts 1 and 2 (out of 4) last week, I decided to start this week at workout 3. Then I did about 20 minutes of cardio on the treadmill (15% incline) afterwards.
What I wore: Under Armour Achieve tank with Lorna Jane Beyonce bra under. Lululemon Inspire Crop in savasana camo fatigue green, and Nike Free 5.0 TR Fit 4 shoes in ash.
Titika Flower jacket as to and from:
Wednesday 6/10 - Saturday 6/13: Rest/injured
What I did: Strength #4. At least I finished the 4 workouts in the last 2 weeks! Haha.
What I wore: Splits59 Tone Racerback in rose with Lorna Jane Arena bra under. Lululemon Wunder Under crop in bordeaux drama, and Nike Free 5.0 TR Fit 4 shoes in fusion pink/atomic mango.
I worked out in my building gym today, so no need for a "to and from".
Ok, here's to hoping that next week will be the week to get back on track! I'll need to remember to take it easy as well, just in case. Hope you all had a great weekend!
