Fighting Back to Fitness


Back to Exercise

I decided that this week was going to be the start of my body's full recovery. I haven't done anything I'd consider to be 'proper exercise' since before this foot incident started and was starting to notice how weak the muscle on my bad side was.

I had anticipated that this week was going to be difficult because just popping to the shops has been exhausting as of late with my pain being so bad. On top of this my body loves me so much I have felt constantly sick which I don't know if it is due to pain or painkillers, either way I can't do anything about it so I may as well just power through. 

All of this considered I think my body has done brilliant this week!

I managed to do quite a lot of yoga which both relaxed my little head and loosened up my feet. I hadn't done yoga in so long, I'd forgotten how tiring it can be on my joints and accidentally had a nap at the end of it.

I had planned a day to go swimming on then woke up on the day feeling absolutely horrendous. This part in my brain just clicked and I found myself saying "Hannah your body has felt very far from fabulous since February. I know you are sore and feel sick but just try." So off I went to the pool, I initially couldn't even finish a length without having to stop in pain however, by the end of the hour I managed to complete six lengths before needing to stop. I did have to run to the toilet to be sick once because of the pain relief but I survived an hour swim and I am well proud of my body.

This week has been difficult but I am writing this feeling the least sick I have been recently and have managed the most food I have done recently.

Hopefully things are on the way up!
