Postponing Tapout XT for a Week
I woke at 6 am this morning and started Plyo XT. 10 minutes into it I had a sharp pain shoot up my left trapezius muscle about midway near my scapula. It took my breath away for a moment and I had to stop. During the Friday workout I was doing those Divebomber push up (P90X name I know) and felt the pain then, sort of like a grinding, tearing feeling. The muscle felt sore but manageable. However, this morning's workout probably made it worse. So, I've decided to give myself a week of recovery and then get back into it where I left off. Instead of the workout this morning I just stretched. Likewise, for the rest of this week I will get up at the same time and stretch. I have to be doubly careful what I eat now because I will not be burning as many calories for sure.
Kinda peeved out about it but I know it's just my body telling me to ease off and let it rest.
