8 March: marching toward a better back

I have a hard time knowing if I’ve overdone the PT or if I am doing enough. I felt soreness in my hip flexors (where the top of the thighs meet the trunk) and roving soreness in other (top of the glute/small of the back).
Walking to and from the office has mostly been ok, though I need to stretch throughout the day.

Monday: upper body; 1:45 worth. Full pt.
I did the PT and 3 sets of 25 push ups indoors before going outdoors
pull ups: sloppy set of 10 followed by a bunch of sets of 5; wide grip has gotten a lot better. Did the rest of the PT here.

Indoor: bench press: the best yet: 5 x 166, 5 x 171, 5 x 174, all decent. rows (3 sets of 10), curls (3 sets of 10); then the 2 sets of 10 x 88 with the shoulder press: better ROM but I wonder about the back; maybe try dumbbells outside on Friday.

Today: AM: stretch, 1 mile walk (some discomfort/pain at .86 miles), stretch, 10 fake miles, then later: PT with Tonya. I have some ideas and things to work on.

It IS changing…finally…it has been a long haul, but my hope is increasing.
