I, like @tina_bajaj, am late to the party. Better late than never, right?
My wife was recently out of town for two months, and we have a vacation in Italy coming up soon as well. I wanted to be in as great of shape as possible, so I spent the last two working out and hitting the gym… probably too much. My regular routine while she was gone had me playing softball Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday, lifting weights on Thursday and Saturday, and cardio on Wednesday. I’d also usually manage to get in a day of 10 rounds of batting practice in there somewhere, usually before my weight lifting on Thursday.
It was a great way to stay busy, but I wasn’t giving my body enough time to recover. I kinda got addicted to the endorphin By the time she came back, I was pushing through a pulled hamstring, tendinitis in my right shoulder and elbow, knees, and right foot, two jammed wrists, shin splints, and various bruises from getting nailed with softballs.
Now that she’s back, I’m going to come back a bit to sanity. Softball on Sunday and Monday, weight lifting and cardio on Thursday and Friday, and Wednesday and Saturdays recovering.
