Anyway, I am happy to report I have been able to squeeze in about 30 - 60 minutes of exercise a day - my body needs it!! M, W, F my gym has x-bike classes (like spinning but so much harder - the classes are only 30 minutes instead of 1 hour). The bikes that are used replicate the feel of a real bike so much more than your normal spin bike. After x-bike I have been doing a mile or two on the treadmill - a mini brick! My knee is still a little tender so I don't want to push it, but I don't want to loose my base either. Mostly, I just don't have the time for a longer workout but I will take what I can get.
Also, I want you to meet my new gym for the next 5 weeks and the inspiration behind the title of this post - I am going to "get sleek in my seat." All you need is a chair and a resistance band and you are good to go.
I starting incorporating these exercises into my daily 10/15 minute breaks I give myself from studying. Surprisingly, I was a little sore today from yesterday workout - which is an awesome feeling! It might not be a whole lot right now but I am doing everything possible to maintain some level of fitness and normalcy throughout this process.
Well, this break time is over but remember my impulse purchase at the CIM expo? Well, I am going to review it in my after my next x-bike class. I took an x-bike class without it and now I am going to wear it to see if I notice any changes. I will then review it con/sans at a yoga class - I really hope it increases my flexibility!
