For those who train with me or within whinge-shot of me, it's no surprise that my hip has been an almost constant point of misery. Last Saturday marked the end of "heavy" lifting before the final taper to rest before GPA Worlds. Last Saturday, I also spent four hours in the car, two of them were immediately after a 3 x 1rm pr on the deadlift. My body hates my guts.
So pretty much, this week has been a battle in pain management. Rolling in bed is an activity involving mass caution. Getting out of the car requires that I use my arms. I'm like an angry bear who wants to hide in a cupboard, eat icecream and pretend like I don't need to be at my best in little over a week. I've also taken to dressing and shuffling around like an old man who's escaped from a mental institution. Some people comfort eat. I comfort dress. All day with the tracksuit, everyday with the tracksuit #doublegrey
I decided to up my massage game. Last week, in a full hour, she didn't really get past trying to release my glutes...yesterday, she did some work with the cups and I've got bruises all over my posterior chain. Today, I had dry needles in my glutes. My arse has had so much attention I'm feeling like Kim Kardashian (except for the #doublegrey)...Things are looking up.
Today we hit my bench opener for three singles with commands and I'm starting to get very excited!
