grand plans of cleaning the house fall apart when you can barely move your arms. Anyone got a quick recovery plan for an entirely overworked upper body?
Thursday I did an upper body work out with Daisy. Thought maybe my left arm needed some strengthening. Think long think wrong right?
I woke up yesterday and could not unbend my left arm. My right was sore, but not like the left. Definitely something is not right!
So what do I do last night? Go out and dance to trance music for 2+ hours at Traffic. Now my whole upper body is a wreck :) But boy was dancing fun!
Tomorrow is the Youngstown half. I'm not "racing" it because recovery would be too long and I am supposed to start my 4 weeks of actual training Monday. The last three weeks were recovery from Tampa and the 50k, the next 4 will be focused training, and then a 3 week taper. (I'm used to a 2 week taper but I guess the first time around I should stick to the plan and if it doesn't work then I can modify it next time around!) I just hope I can bend my arms tomorrow because despite running Youngstown as a training run I am still going to need these little arms to help get me up all the hills!
