Recovery And Mobility Time

A wonderful morning. Especially after a trying night of local card play. I experienced something while playing some cards last night that is astronomical in the odds. I got beat by the same player, who made the same mistake, twice in two separate games. Each time he had a less than 5% chance of making his hand. To do it twice in two separate games is nothing less than astounding. Ouch. Which is why it’s a good thing that today is recovery and mobility time.

Mostly I needed to stretch out and relax. Three days of workouts and the endurance of the idiocy of bad card play by someone else meant I needed to unwind a bit. I’m really diggin the use of the foam roller. Gets me all loosened up and ready to move on with the day. There are times where I feel like it might be worth it to spend 30 minutes foam rolling each morning.

I’ve put last night’s peeved feelings to rest. I’m foam rolled and stretched. I’m about to down a hearty breakfast. Next up it’s time to finish up another theme song, get it all slicked up and ready to slam. I’m ready because I’ve had my recovery and mobility time. How about you?

Recovery And Mobility And Foam Rolling

My oh my. I can’t believe how tight I got in the two weeks I took off from working out. It’s kinda bizarre. The good thing is, I have recovery and mobility and foam rolling to get me back into a state of being more flexible.

Normally I’m very flexible. Yet, maybe I’m comparing my “new” tightness to my more recently more flexible self. I was so close to palming the floor at the end of my first journey through P90X2. Today I was back to only getting to my fingers slightly down on the floor. Bummer.

I believe within a week or two though, I’ll be back and also be able to reach a goal of being able to palm the floor in a forward bend. Not and easy task for a tall guy like me. It will happen. I know it.

Things that were noticeably tight in foam rolling today: My right calf, my left shin, my right bicep, my left forearm, my right IT band, my left inner thigh. Very odd that it was like opposites. After the foam rolling though, I’m feeling loser and that’s a good thing. That’s why I’m happy to have recovery and mobility and foam rolling inside the P90X2 journey.
