Really they are, you know my workouts. I feel as if I’m ready to go high intensity but I get a reminder. The calf gets to pulling and then the knee. Now let me explain, it was a calf injury; one I hope to never, ever experience again. The injury had at first no pressure on my foot so with the knee slightly bent with crutches then the knee roller. Oh my the change. Later I used toe touch, then the ball of my foot which again the knee slightly bent.
Now that I’m able to walk still short distance but now getting my knee to not feel the discomfort in normal position and having RA doesn’t really help.
Okay my workouts I am so ready for high intensity but I have to modify. There’s nothing wrong with modifying but I feel blah and on a few routines in following my trainers which of course are streamed, Yes still a beach body fan, Beachbodyondemand, I am doing normal workout and then the pull. Yeah back to modification. I’m just like a teeter totter, up down and I have to motivate myself not to stop.
It’s change and I am not adjusting very well, BUT to myself and for you it’s so important to listen to our body. It’s never a good thing to push through an injury but man sometimes the healing process is so long or appears to be.
So to patience and modification I’m saluting all those recovering from an injury and ready to resume their workouts.
