From Matt: We are in week 9 and feeling strong. Last week I was experiencing some intestinal cramping. They said that may have been a withdrawl from the statin that I was taken off of. The cramping has ended and I am feeling gooooood! My wellness guru has stirred the pot one more time and added some new treats into my exersice menu. This week there were more weight and muscle confusion circuits. He told me to grab two 20-pound dumbells and head for the stairs. When we got to the stairs he told me to climb up to the 6th floor and come back down, You know you have complete faith in your trainer when you don’t even question what he tells you. Three sets of those and I was gasping for air. I apologize to the maintenance department who probably thought there was a broken pipe from all of the water in the stairway from my sweat. The great part of working out with weights is that you are burning hours after you are done working out. That is the good burn.
The bad burn is the gigantic blood blister that I have on my left heel. It still has not popped and after a workout is about an inch out from my skin. I am not sure if I should pop it and release the pressure or just leave it and let it break on it’s own. I am putting polysporin on it and keeping covered with a huge pad. Any imput would be great. No Pain. No Gain.
