I am officially over the hump! 4 more days left and I'm still goin' strong! haha
Today was a good day--my hamstring is still a little sore but I iced it a lot today--probably not smart to work out on it (and a longer workout than normal at that!) but I could definitely tell a difference in myself with not working out yesterday and I wanted to get back on the horse, if you will...haha It actually didn't bother me too much when I was working out (surprisingly)...it's mostly when I stretch that muscle so I just avoided doing that as much as possible. I skipped the leg curl (the machine that works your hamstring) and I put most of my weight on my right leg when I knew I was going to be using my hamstring--and the treadmill and elliptical didn't really bother it at all which completely surprised me!
Ok enough about that--in a couple of days, I'll be good as new anyways! I was correct in my assumption yesterday--I didn't lose any weight...but I also didn't gain any which stands as a good outcome in my book! I'll be working out extra hard these last few days (finish strong, right?!) so hopefully I can make up for this day somewhere in there!
