Had my first session at the gym on Monday. Logged what I did, but it's not on me right now.
I really learned a lesson about stretching though!
I ran there for my warm up (around 4km)
Got into my training - a few machines, finished with some bicep curls and deadlifts.
Went to jog home, and I think it was the deadlifts that prevented that one... So I enjoyed a lovely walk home in the afternoon sun.
Didn't stretch (I originally planned to once home after my jog, but after walking had cooled down and just got home and got into other things)
Yesterday I felt it.
Last night I felt wiped out.
During the night I kept waking, felt uncomfortable, woke feeling groggy. Called in sick (not what i want to do when unpaid xmas break is coming up).
So this morning I got into some good yoga. During Uttanasana I could at first only just get my hands below my knees (usually I can have my hands flat on the ground with my legs straight). After 20 minutes I felt great again.
Also, I ate some chocolate, chocolate ice-cream and sorbet last night. Probably didn't help with the sleep. And I didn't have a fresh vege salad yesterday. naughty.
SO, I must try to avoid sugar, keep up my Yoga, STRETCH after workouts, and eat more fresh raw veg (I still eat heaps of raw fruit, nuts, seeds).
Back to the gym this afternoon
Looking forward to my session with a P.T as I want to get more into free weights but don't know what to do at the moment.
