Fit Report – Oct. 3rd, 2011 – Legs/Back

Well, just legs, actually. And just barely. On my way into work this morning I had a headache. Got to work and took an ibuprofen. Headache went away. No problem. Went to the gym. During my cardio warm-up, the headache … …but wait, there’s more! »

Fit Report – Sept. 20th, 2011 – Abs/Core

Ow. And ow. Ow #1: My genius idea that I wouldn’t work out my legs on floor hockey day seems to have backfired slightly, as, of course, my glutes and hamstrings are now tight and sore after working them semi-seriously … …but wait, there’s more! »

Fit Report – May 25th, 2011 – Abs/Core

Got a bit of a surprise going into the gym today. First real workout of the week, so I hadn’t been in there since Saturday. Lo and behold, they’ve rearranged the place. The core workout equipment has all been moved … …but wait, there’s more! »

What’s In A Shoe? Support? Value? Injury?

Today I was supposed to be going to the gym for a session with the fitness manager to test my knee, and to learn some exercises that would hopefully fix the problem. Unfortunately, a personal emergency forced her to cancel … …but wait, there’s more! »

Fit Report – March 11th, 2011 – General Workout

Ok, I’ve mostly gotten over the whole “I hate my body” thing. Too bad my body has started to hate me. Seriously, every time I think I’m making progress, my body delivers pain to slow me down. I was starting … …but wait, there’s more! »

Injury Update

Okay, I’ve been going to physiotherapy for a month now. Unfortunately, things don’t seem to be progressing at all, and the treatments are coming out of pocket these days, since our insurance coverage is only for up to $300 (Seriously, … …but wait, there’s more! »

Fit Report – Feb. 4th, 2011

Ah, my tape. Yep, got the shoulder re-taped today, and what a difference it makes. Like I said last week, not pain free, but manageable. It lets me focus on my form more, which in turn is going to help … …but wait, there’s more! »

Fit Report – Feb. 1st, 2011 – Arms/Chest/Back

I miss my tape! Yeah, doing today’s workout(which is the same as last Friday’s) was definitely not as pain-free as it was last week. Not being taped up is the difference, I think. I tried to keep my shoulders locked … …but wait, there’s more! »
