Day by Day

The best laid plans of mice and men, often go awry.  That's sort of how I'm feeling right now.  Although I would have liked to have jumped right into the 4x7 program, I am taking it a bit slower than planned.  But that's ok, because I am still moving forward and have not re-injured and aggravated the back in any way.

I had a good soreness in my body following my bodyweight day on Friday.  But because I was sore I didn't want to hit the bells just yet, as I wanted to give myself enough time to properly recuperate first.  The last thing I want to do is tear myself down at this point.  So Saturday was strictly an IntuFlow day.

Yesterday started out as a busy day and by mid afternoon I had a bit of time to sit down with the Kettlebell Foundation Compensatory Movement DVD and was able to finish reviewing and practicing all of the movements.  So for the time being, I should be able to work through the entire Compensatory program without having to refer back to the DVD.  I also video taped myself while performing a few of the movements just so I could get some visual feedback on my form versus Scott.  And I must say I was rather pleased.  

This morning I had a really difficult time getting out of bed, so I blew it for the bells and ran through IntuFlow Beginner program.  But so far, the back is still on the mend and hasn't gotten any worse.  Today is a chiro appointment and tomorrow morning I must get my butt out of bed to swing the bells.  Until then, swing 'em high!

Good work buddy! Sometimes the best workout is listening to what our body needs even when that means sleeping in and not doing too much intense work.
