kore LOVES to train!

#1 Postby kore » Mon Feb 06, 2012 6:36 am

Hey! A mate suggested I start up an online training journal and I've decided to give it a go as there seem to be lots of positive people on here. I live in Canberra, Australia and have been vegan for about three years. I've only started getting back into my fitness a few months ago after some serious lazy time and started a new program today.

I don't really have any specific goals, but I like to train because:
- it feels awesome
- for health/wellbeing/fitness/strength
- I like the idea of looking fit and athletic

So - somehow I hurt my lower back last week - the devastation!! I finally admitted this to myself and went to the physio, who said no running or weights that affect lower back for at least a week. I'm pretty bummed, but am going to do my best to listen to that advice! Will still see how I go at indoor soccer tomorrow though, but will hold off on running long. I also ended up taking yesterday as my rest day for the week.

So... my lower back still hurts quite a bit :(
Played paintball this morning, which probably didn't help - but it was for a mate's birthday. I took it pretty easy at indoor soccer too, but not feeling particularly great!

Sunday 12th February 2012

PM - Cardio

Indoor soccer - 40 mins no subs (keeper for one quarter)

I've got a legs and chest resistance session on for tomorrow, but will have to skip or substitute some of the exercises till my lower back is back in business. Not going to let it get me down though!!

Night all

So... I've been on a bit of a bender! I think it's because I've been so bummed out from my back being sore and not being able to train properly or run. So I've been feeling really sluggish and crappy, eating poorly, not sleeping well and just generally being grumpy! Haven't trained at all since last Thursday till today and again had to do a modified legs session because of my back. At least this injury has made me realise that compound exercises are definitely what it's all about for legs! Because I can't do them at the moment - after training legs last Monday without squats/deadlifts etc - I wasn't even sore the next day! I feel very slack, but am going to let my back get better before I eff it up again :)
