My back is officially in serious pain. Went to the docs yesterday and they gave me some pretty serious pain and muscle relaxers and then referred me to a spine doctor… that’s pretty crazy, but for now I’m taking a few days off from the gym and hopefully I will be able to seriously mod workouts soon. I think I may have pushed it too hard with cleans/ jerks/ push presses.
7/2, Day 2
Here’s the daily break-down…
B- Coffee, prosciutto, olives
L- Rotisserie chicken, cauli rice, zoodles, olives
D- Rotisserie chicken, salad, olives
Sup- Probiotic, liver care(2/day), milk thistle/ dandelion/ yellow dock(2/day), magnesium, idoral, multivitamin, N-Acetyl- Cysteine Dock, D-3 (2/day), Liquid B-12 (25 drops)
7 Thruster (135/ 95#)
9 Handsand Push-Ups
11 Box Jump (30/ 24”)
I modded this ENTIRE workout. For MU’s I did 25 box dips, thrusters I did push press (back limitations), HSPU I did push ups, box jumps I did box step ups. Even though I modded the hell out of everything in this WOD, it was still super hard. My shoulders just didn’t have it in them!
15 minutes of various spinal mobility movements. My lower back is jacked up, so this sucked.
I’ve been really freaking hungry lately. Maybe it’s a metabolism thing?? Here’s to hoping! My arthritis is feeling okay- I have a bit of pain in my right pinky, but everything else is pretty good. I have to say, this weather’s been insane and definitely not helpful. You can read about additional pain up top if you haven’t already!
