One really great thing to do for our own health is stretching. I constantly see the wonders of stretching in injury recovery and injury prevention.
One thing I have noticed is that so many people who are able to recover faster use yoga for a added touch to their health. Also never underestimate the power of "THE STICK"... ekk.. no but really, this thing is what all of our pro athletes and other patients are using. All of the Houston Astros, Houston Texans, and college athletes use it. It helps muscles recover, relieves soreness, rebuilds the muscle, and really has been a great tool for me through high school and college athletics. I'm a huge fan!!
One thing I have noticed though is it is SOO HARD to work full time and not snack/eat like a 300lb man during dinner and lunch.
But I realized how ridiculous this was. I wanted so bad to workout, I need to work out but it was both way too late and by that time we were way too tired.
After one block we turned back into the house and proceeded to watch tv.
Why am I having such trouble shifting to working full time?!!
I know Anthony understands how frustrated I am. I feel horrible because it gets me down. He has been really patient about it but I know I need to change this mindset and get in a routine.
Tonight is a 6 mile run- Now I am off to get changed and then get my run on!
