Since my knee injury, things just haven’t been the same on my fitness scale and it’s bothered me every day.
Last week, my knee started really giving me trouble again and is so frustrating. I tried to go for a bike ride on Friday night, and I only made it 12 minutes round trip. The knee said no, then I got anxious, and because I was anxious I thought I was going to die, so you know. Circle of doom, right there.
This week, I’ve made it my mission to get to the gym in the morning before work. I do so much better with my workouts when I go before work. Afternoons seem to fill up so quickly, and it just makes it too easy to make excuses. Hopefully this week is going well with the morning workouts.
I did finally join a gym. Just before my knee got hurt, I realized that the Barre studio I had been working toward becoming an instructor for didn’t have any openings for instructors at the times I was available. Then… the knee. I haven’t been in probably two months.
I realized something toward the end… I was getting bored with only doing Barre. I missed the variety of classes, I missed the ability to just do free weights, I missed running, and if I just did a membership at the Barre studio, I didn’t have the time or the money for those other things.
I plan to still drop in regularly, because I do love it, but I don’t know that right now it’s the place I’m meant to be. Finding a new stride in exercise is proving to be difficult, but I’m hoping that this week back on the wagon will make it much easier to stay ON the wagon. :)
