First day of plyo this year! I was a pretty excited about getting that started because it’s such a great work out. A couple of times I did it in the fall, I I had started off the routine and felt like a pulled a hamstring on the first move and had to stop. Well I made sure to do all of the stretching first this time. …. and proceeded to do the same thing during the WARMUP! How old am I, anyway?
So I was a pissed. Threw a few things. Hobbled around the apartment cursing for a while, stopped the DVD and then sulked. I decided I was going to try it again, but after a good bit of stretching. Which meant I needed to eat dinner and then try after that.
I did that, ate, then sat on the floor stretching most of the night. It was about 9:30 when I gave it another shot. Veeerrry gingerly. The first few moves didn’t feel promising but I kept it up because there was no extreme pain. As the routine went on, it got a lot better, though I’m sure it will be extra sore tomorrow.
I get to go to bed nice and late tonight because there’s no way in hell I’m falling asleep right after getting my heart rate up that high.
