I have been a right grouch/misery this last week or so. Unable to exercise and in pain does not make for a happy Emma
On Friday I tried going for a swim, who knew you needed your feet for that? Or at least who knew how much pressure was put on your foot to move water? This was meant to be the problem solver to my woes, Jel had even sent me a pyramid of swimming to do, but as the swimming went on so did the pain.
Yesterday the bf and I went to the gym. Nikki and I had thought through what I could do in the gym without putting any pressure on my foot. So I did some leg curls and presses on the weight machines, then moved onto arms, this did involve my feet being on the floor, but I tried not to put too much pressure on them. Chest press, shoulder press and low row – managed to upset my bf by being able to ‘low row’ the same weight as him – he upped it by 5kg to 45kg to try and out do me…… It didn’t work!
Then I moved on to abs +/- a medicine ball.
Sadly though by the time I left the gym my foot was in pain again – I was gutted as being there and exercising again felt so good
So back to the sofa for more foot resting non-action
Missed out on a pre-wedding BBQ and a visit to see Nikki’s boat this weekend
Not up there yet, but sure it will be soon – less than 1 week until the Clipper Round the World Race begins http://nikkiandthewaves.tumblr.com/
