Week 35 – the pulled muscle week

Day 1:  Still having the abdominal muscle or ligament pain. Not a good sensation, but gets better with rest. 7:05 am 20 minute walk, followed by 35 minute walk followed by leg stretches and 20 minute walk.  1:30 PM  40 minute walk while pushing stroller, 20 minute walk home later.

Day 2: 15 minute brisk walk 8:45 am, 30 minute leisurely with errands.  more walking (1 to 2 hours worth)  4:30 PM 15 minutes to Cadman Plaza and 15 minutes home with a few sprints after Mateo in between. Belly slightly better

11:45 PM 30 minute walk to Atlantic Avenue.

1:15 PM  30 minute walk home from Atlantic avenue.

8:30 PM Mateo tried to climb on me and my belly muscle (or ligament) flared up again. Super painful for the rest of the night, led to very bad parenting!

Day 4:  8:00 am 20 minute walk, 11:25 AM 45 minute walk. Belly felt better, mostly good, but rested all afternoon to keep it feeling good.

Day 5:  12:40 – 5:00 walk and play in park, but I kept it as low key as possible since I had insomnia the previous night and was quite tired, but belly felt pretty much healed.

Day 6:  Absolutely nothing!!!!  Mother’s day and I hadn’t slept well and had a cold.

Day 7:  8:30 AM  30 minute walk, two sets of light theraband presses and rows, 11:50  10 minute walk, 12:15- 1:00 stood or walked in playground which involved some lifting of Mateo, belly seems fully healed.
