One stroke forward...three strokes back

     Three days in the gym last week...mostly work on the treadmill or the elliptical machine. Try to go 30 to 40 minutes at a medium intensity. 120 steps a minute on the elliptical or 3.4 miles/hour on the treadmill.  My hips are killing me! feels like they are going to split apart on the backside and my tailbone hurts when I sit down. I think I overstretched the ligaments in my sacral/iliac joint...if you can do such a thing.

     I did manage to get into the pool one day last week as well. 11laps doing the breast-stroke and 1 lap freestyle.  My right shoulder was in a bind after one lap and I found myself in the Chiropractor's office the following day....

     Hhmmm... I wonder if 11 laps of "frog kicks" with the breast-stroke is what has my hips so sore??
I used to be able to swim 25-30 laps 4-5 days a week.  I have a long way to go to get back to that level of swimming!

    Weight this week 162.8 pounds.  I think I back paddled a bit there too!  But let me tell you, the carb and sugar cravings have been horrible!!!

Hope this week is better! Blessings to you!
