    Ah, the IT band. Stretch well... then stretch some more

    Yep. And foam roll is the devil!

    Just getting started and sadly out of shape. So I'm starting small. I did 10 minutes of yoga stretches. 10 minutes of recumbent bike, another 15 minutes of general stretches and arm weights.

    On Thursday, for some reason I failed to get past the lobby of the pre-breakfast Zoom class. So I went for a walk. I also got an evening walk in, so ended up on over 30,000 steps. I saw a stag on the morning walk.

    I felt broken on Friday, so all I managed was a walk.

    On Saturday, I did an hour's yoga. I got a climb in on my home wall. It was a pretty good session. I really should make sure the mats are in the right spot if I do a dyno to a crimp at the top... No harm done, though.

    On Monday, I did another walk, this time around 15 miles, getting 33,000 steps in.

    That's exactly how you should start. It's smart. It's consistency that wins the race in the weight loss/health department. People that start off like a wildfire burn out or get hurt.

    I'm out for a few days. Did 80 minutes steady state work yesterday and felt a slight tweak on the rower. Well, that was my lower back telling me it's decided to go out on me. Going to the chiropractor today. Old injury. Usually the lower back just takes a few adjustments and I'm right back at it. Feeling better today. Still not good but not as much pain when I walk and get up from a chair.

    Since Covid hit, I haven't been on vacation yet this year. I usually take a four to seven day break twice a year on training so hard. Perhaps this will be my Summer break from working out, even if not planned.

    I'd not stretched in a few days because of an injury and then I was away. Where I hiked 22km at 36C. So yesterday I did my stretching routine again and found that I can sit totally comfortably in an upright pigeon pose with front knee at 90 degree angle now on one side. No lengthy warm up needed. It just worked. Also could sit comfortably in a side split on my black roll and on something quite a bit thinner on both sides. It looks like not doing anything for a few days is beneficial.

    Oh, I managed to get up out of a cosack squat. Just once (I was only stretching), but wow! Didn't expect that.

    I did a bit of relaxing yoga yesterday. Nothing extreme. Then wanted to see how far down I come with front splits. And came nearly all the way down without any actual discomfort. This kind of shocked me so much that I decided not to work out today because I know I want to try it again. Which is probably not good.

    Yoga. And the front splits repeat I so desperately wanted to do yesterday. I came pretty much all the way down :o Well, my hip flexors are still too tight to get the back leg all the way down. So I guess to achieve front splits I spent
    about 3 months trying to figure out what works for me (it's not stretching, but rather massaging), and about 4 weeks to get into the splits without specifically training for it and only trying it 1-2 times per week. Wow!
