I think my back is actually feeling better, so I'm hoping to start training properly again from tomorrow. But will still make an effort to ease back into it - because the worst thing that could happen is that it ends up back at square one and for me to have to spend another few weeks out of action.

I've got a legs/chest resistance session on for the morning and am excited about getting back into the squats! But might hold off on weighted ones for this week. Also, not going to attempt deadlifts just yet.

I'm a bit bummed that by pretty much doing no cardio for the last couple of weeks, I've probably lost a lot of the progress I made with my running long. But am trying not to let it get to me and am hoping it won't take long for me to build my cardio fitness back up.

Plan for the week:
(my back better not get in the way of this or I'll be pissed :shock:)

Monday
AM - legs/chest

Tuesday
AM - shoulders/triceps/core
PM - jog

Wednesday
AM - interval training (running)

Thursday
AM - back/biceps
PM - jog

Friday
AM - legs/chest

Saturday
REST

Sunday
PM - Indoor Soccer

Wish me luck! :D

Gym this morning was awesome! Then it rained heavily all night so didn't run, but am actually kinda glad as it's given my back one more deal to heal :) Was planning on doing some interval training with CCor tomorrow morning, but it's supposed to continue raining lots, so we've decided to reschedule. Not sure what I'll do instead, but aiming to do some cardio at the gym after work.

How has your back been holding up? Seen any progress in strengthening it?
