This post isn’t meant to be whiny. I didn’t end up in the hospital and my O2 stayed 97-98 and I never had that much of a cough. BUT, one after effect is that every health related issue has come back..not with a vengeance…but say to where it was only 70-80 percent healed.
My throat, urinary system, fever blisters, piriformis muscle and lower lumbar/glute.
I was reminded of that yesterday. Beautiful day to walk; PT went well so I thought ” go bold; do the W. Peoria 5K course.” That was dumb. The first two miles went very well; last mile hurt; was painful for the last .4-.5 miles. I should have stuck to a loop course.
Note: the final mile was done at 13:04 which isn’t terrible but it hurt.
But this COVID stuff comes in waves. Today: mouth blisters but the back/glute felt better.
I mixed up the PT and pull ups/pull up crunch combos (25 reps) and did a slow mile. More PT/Pull ups (2 sets of 5, sets of 5 singles to get to 50 reps), more PT then walk 2 which went VERY well…but it was only 2 miles. I had to make myself quit. Perfect walking weather.
I have to remember it was the split walks that got me to doing 5-7 miles to begin with.
Then downstairs for some bench, high incline and curls.
Bench: 5 x 134, 1 x 155, 1 x 165, 1 x 175 (disappointed how hard it was)
3 x 165, 4 x 160, 5 x 155, 5 x 155
High incline: 10 x 105 (poor range of motion; I thought I was getting deeper), 10 x 105, then 10 x 94 with much better ROM
2 sets of curls
More PT with 3 sets of 20 push ups, 2 sets of chest taps, 2 sets of 10 push ups. And that was that.
I need to take it slowly and not rush things; “getting ready for the season” now means nothing to me.
I also have to remember this post covid stuff comes in waves; good one day, bad the next, and I have to accept what is there on a given day.
