Yesterday was my first full day back at the gym for weights. I did the whole program except for squats. I didn't want to put any pressure on that lower back just yet. Took the normal time to get through it all and by the end I felt great. Not sore at all. I threw in 30 mins of cardio just for good measure and to loosen up the legs.
The funny thing about it all is that I can do a full 2 hours in the gym with weights but as soon as I try to walk for more than 5 minutes I have to stop and sit down. Cycling doesn't hurt, eliptical doesn't hurt...but walking does me in. Very strange.
However, this is promising because at least I can get back to my weight program. Only 5 weeks to go!
