Hip Warmup Stretch
3 min Treadmill Warmup
25 min Arc Trainer workout (level 1 - heart rate between 140-155 bpm the whole time)
2 min Treadmill Cooldown
5 min stretch
Ow. I'm thrilled that I worked out today. I'm also a bit concerned about how my back is feeling. I was a little uncomfortable doing my hip warmup stretches, but it didn't bother me again until I went to stretch out my legs. I sat on the floor and almost cried. I can't sit on the floor. At all. I can lay on the floor with discomfort to stretch, but I can't sit without tears springing to my eyes. Grrr. I'm not pleased. I'm hoping this is a passing phase of the physical therapy. Driving and sitting (two things I do A LOT) are only mildly uncomfortable, but doing my PT stretches is almost impossible. A little Ibuprofen and a few prayers and hopefully I'll be well enough for PT tomorrow.
