Week 5 doldrums
- Feb 13th, 2019 at 12:09AM
Week 5 did not go well for me. I feel like I'm the epitome of every single one of these lessons - particularly the Ups and Downs of training. Last week was Chinese New Year here in HK and I basically jumped off the wagon with both feet. For the most part, my food was ok - I've been avoiding sweets successfully, but with my kids out of school and being out and about, I missed several of the snacks and ate a couple of dinners out. My biggest disappointment in myself was that the exercise went sideways. I missed or didn't complete 5 of the 7 workouts. I still did Dragon Boat and played some tennis, but took a full break from the jump rope.
On the bright side, my knee has certainly appreciated the rest from skipping. I had an evaluation on Saturday and it was mild bursitis from overuse and I haven't damaged anything significant. I'm now able to fully flex it without tightness or pain. However, I feel like I'm back at square one on the jump rope. I'm sticking to alternate cardio , but I could use some guidance on how much I should be doing to equate to 1200 jumps?
I am super inspired by those of you that are totally rocking it - keep up the good work and providing us semi-slackers with incentive to catch up to you!!!
