More walking and still no sleep
Even with more oxy sleep is poor. I get no more than a few hours( if i'm lucky) before tightening calf, hammy and IT band wake me up. Searching for a leg position that doesn't do this ( and believe me I've tried everything twice) and it's a bit frustrating.
It's one thing to deal with pain, another to deal with pain in the night, and quite another to ( try) to deal with pain in the night when you're exhausted from no sleep and tons of day pain and no solution in sight.
But as exhausted as I may be as soon as I actually get up, instead of trying to eke out a few more minutes of "sleep" , have a coffee I start to feel pretty good.
For today's walk Tracy and I went to the Campbell Park and walked around the parcourse.
And, of course, since she was with me I went too far and too fast. Not drastically just a bit too much
3.4 mile mph
this is more than what the mile markers said at the park but I'm going with the data from the pedometer. This is a solid pr and perhaps the most I've walked continuously in 20+ years :)
Tracy helped me a lot in my gait pattern, she is developing a very good coaches eye.
Worked on getting my ankles to actually bend as I go through the ROM. Cues were to lift the heel instead of toe off and lift the foot in swing phase instead of lift the knee. All good although I had to ice and stretch as soon as I got home
Bodyweight: 150 lbs ouch. not sleeping ,eating or training will do that to a guy. No worries it will come back soon enough.
11am Grip work
x 3,4,5 x 3 rounds
back to sitting on the stability ball and doing tons of knee rocks to get the knee to bend more. a very easy way to get LOTS of flexion reps in without even thinking about it.
Also, can tolerate the foam roller ( blue only) now and that helps.
