…with them pretzels! After a month off 😱 (between the week and a half off to rest my hip flexors & the 2 1/2 weeks off in recovery of changing my defibrillator), I started back up in taking class. Aaaaaand I started with a bar move class 😳 yea, I know. Insane. I feel like my muscles (particularly my abs) totally forgot how to work or that they have any use whatsoever hahaha. Just need to keep it up until they are back to being useful and as strong as they used to be.
I’m always afraid of taking a break from exercising for this very reason – the fear of losing my mojo. It’s hard to get back into it when everything in class becomes so hard to do. But a friend once told me it’s ok (if anything, it’s good) to take breaks in order to give your body rest and then work hard to get yourself back to that place you were at once again. Just got to push yourself to doing that. So here’s to that… #cheers
I took Susan Lee’s Bar Move class but in the studio next door. I was a little worried if I was going to be unable to do some stuff due to my surgery recovery, but for the most part it was fine and I was able to do all the exercises (or modify when appropriate). 👍🏼
