Tomorrow will be 5 weeks since my surgery, and I can say that last week I began feeling very close to 100%, which is magnificent.
I am still having to watch myself in the gym, and be very very mindful of which actions cause pressure – things like pull downs and seated rows actually cause quite a bit. I am mature enough to be patient with my weights and take it steady.
Yesterday was my first full-on Metcon Session in 5 weeks, so naturally I was a little bit munted by the end, but it felt good. Even sprints felt OK.
I have also started a slightly pathetic but worthy goal for me – 5k in 4 weeks. Doing it via intervals – last week was 1 min on 2 min off x 10, today 1.5 min on 1.5 min off x 6, will make it to 2 min on 1 min off x 10 by end of week…..
Not being able to run either physically or psychologically has been difficult for me, and reaching this goal will be very satisfying methinks.
My PM Ketone reading has been between 0.7 – 2.1 last week. my FBG ~5.3
Been onto my green smoothies for breakfast during the week. I need to watch my fibre intake when I do that though…..also focussing on trying not to eat much protein in the earlier part of the day.
Last week I focused on cutting nuts down which was good. This week need to focus on less mindless nibbling in the mid-late afternoon.
