Weekly Training Log - 23.7 - 29.7 (Rehab)
Finally returned to Japan and being absent from any physical exercise for one week was quite stressful for me. My right leg was still in pain but definitely felt much better. I spent another week in a cast but started to go to the gym for rehab. Biking seemed to be ok, so I went 4 times to the gym, did around an hour on the bike each session and added upper body and core muscle strength training. Can’t wait to start with real workout again, but I need to be patient and taking at least one more week rest from running seems to be wise. Next week I will focus on building strength, both upper body and legs.. I can climb stairs so I will spend many hours on bike and stair master to get my cardio back in shape, without harming my right shin and ankle.
I had also been eating whatever I felt like during the last 2 weeks (yes I was craving for Japanese food, especially Sushi) and also drinking more beer than usual, so I will focus on a healthier diet, which I believe will be key for future improvement. Just havent figured out yet what kind of diet works best for me, will need to dig deeper and also experiment with nutrition. Mentally I feel really motivated to get back stronger and healthier after my injury!
