I’m still trying to be sensitive about the hip. It’s not nearly as bad as it has been. I was able to comfortably place my feet flat on the floor during a bench exercise. That was big for me. The only exercise that really felt uncomfortable were the pushups and it was the act of holding my body straight that was doing it to me. Overall, I’m very happy with this workout. I’m tired of feeling like50% is the best I can do and want to push it some.

Saturday morning I tagged along with Laura to her new gym. I used this fancy, stationary bike they had that had a video monitor and a route you had to ride and steer through. Supposedly the other folks I saw on the course where other riders at other gyms all over the country, doing the same thing. They were kinda slow.

Then I went and just started doing circuit type stuff. I kept it real light and the rep range around 30 but with little effort. I think my body will thank me tomorrow if it isn’t already.

My hip injury has reduced down to little more than nerve pain. My sciatic nerve starts to hurt halfway through the work day and it gets very hard to sit. I’m treating it like inflammation (ice and some ibuprofen) and it seems to be helping. I’m, pretty happy about that.
