Anvil or Hammer


Posted in Rest and Recovery by Mike on November 4, 2007

My back is feeling a whole lot better. I used several rounds of ice and heat each morning and night since. The only thing that remains sore is more of my side. I assume that the injury was a muscle pull to either my oblique or some deep muscle that attaches at the top of the hip and leg. I know there are quite a few of those and they are hard to get at. I haven’t drug out my A&P books to decide. When I visit the PT on Wednesday, obviously, I’ll mention this along with the 3 other specific things I want to talk to him about. I’m hoping he’ll have some ideas and maybe put me throughsome mobility tests and find some things I may not even be aware of.

I haven’t done anything “training-wise” since Friday night. I debated some light rowing today but I”m just not sure I want to do it. I’ll get some light stuff in on Monday and maybe a little on Tuesday. Wednesday is PT, Thursday is regualr training, Friday I will probably not go heavy and just do a pumper routine.

I’m gonna run heavy tomorrow. Some of that is due to the lack of activity but some is due to me choosing to eat more, hoping it will help with the muscle healing.
