I tried the coffee trick, but it didn’t really help. I tried staying on my feet, constantly moving around, but I got bored and stopped. So after a day of struggling to stay awake, I went to the gym to meet up with my PT for a workout session.
And I think it did help, for the time being at least. But he was not impressed that I had worked out 11 times in 7 days, not including our extreme walking around in the city of Ottawa every day (one of the walks ended at about 20 kilometres). So now he’s banned me from the gym next week, demanding me to rest. I’ve agreed on not working out in the gym, but we agreed on me running instead. And I’m happy with that. My legs are still shaking from today’s PT session hours ago, so I see his point. 😝
Today I tried out dead lifts. I’ve never done that before, and I can see how that exercise will do wonder with my back pains when I master it correctly. It was fun, but hard. Lots to think about, details to perfect, so that I get the technique correct. And then he made me push 90 kilos in leg press. I’ve been doing 70 kilos at the gym when I’m on my own, but I guess I needed the challenge. And I did good! I have strong legs and butt, always have. It’s by far my favourite day in the gym, leg day!
Now I’m off to bed though. Starting to feel wide awake, still on Canadian time, but I’ll force my self to sleep to get back in this time zone.
I hope you had a great Sunday, friend.
Over and out
