Back from the gym!

Tonight was my return to the gym for the first time since I hurt my wrist exactly 2 weeks ago. It went well. I met my sister and we worked out together. There were 3 exercises that we had to cycle through for 5 sets: 1) Single leg deadlift with kettlebell (5 x 10R/10L) 2) Turkish get ups with kettlebell (5 x 2R/2L) 3) Box step ups with kettlebell (5 x 5R/5L) I am terrible with single leg deadlifts as I feel like a weeble-wobble. They really slowed me down. The TGUs and box step ups were fine. The finisher was a circuit where we were supposed to run though a little course in the back room (triple hop, zig zag hop, ladder, and then a sprint), then do 20 TRX rows, and then do a 50' body walk one way and a 50' body walk the other way. I did the first two things but skipped the body walks as I didn't think my wrist would be up for that at all. All in all it was a great workout for my first time back in awhile. I have definitely lost my wind though. I need to get back at it for sure!

I bet you was glad to be back after your time away. I hope you did not overdo it.

No I didn't. If I did the body walks, that would have been overdoing it.

@NJChicaa Glad you didn’t. I am sure you was glad to have been able to get some workout in after not working out for a while.

Your body has to ease back into the routine again.

With this ankle injury I was afraid I would not be able to get up and go, but I am after a couple days of light duty, I will wait a few more days before allowing the dogs to run me. Glad your wrist is healing.

It felt good to be back. Now it doesn't feel so good as my wrist is definitely sore. I should probably ice it. The TGUs and rows didn't help.

I always tell myself to go to the gym but haven't had the courage to do so. Thanks for posting this. It will inspire some of us.
