I have decided to lay off the weights for a few days as overall soreness has set in accompanied by signs of inflammation. There is no doubt today that my body is inflamed and take a step back to a point of a soft walk each morning for the next 3 days. Come Monday I will start lifting just one set again and resume the pace of cardio where I will slowly build back up to 3 miles per day.
How is it that I always forget about the process of inflammation. I set out on this new routine with the idea of just doing one set of each exercise on the bowflex but somewhere I ended up quickly moving it to two sets. There is something about body building that is so attractive to me but I have to come to terms with it. All I want to do is work those muscles each day, which would give a slow and steady building process. Sometime more is not always better. It’s that darn beast once again who wants to come out and play. An intricate part of me always want to push to do better, but in this case good enough wins the prize.
