Confession time. I have spent the last two months sitting on my bottom for 8 hours at work and than 4 hours of lecture and than coming home to sleep before doing it all again. No activity at all really.
I am closing in on the end (Aug 5th) and trying to decide how to get back in to the necessity of activity. During this period I developed joint pain that was so bad I saw a doctor. I have a family history of somatic depression so she suggested Cymbalta. I gave it a try and it worked like magic! Wonderful thing to use but I want to get off of it ASAP and that means being active.
I want to go back to fundamentals practice for roller derby, but that is two hours on skates and I am not sure I can do it. I can go to free skates twice a week to build up endurance first. I am trying to decide if I should just go or try not to suck first. I am leaning toward just going because I miss the girls.
I am also playing with the idea of adding something else. There is a local cross fit gym and I was thinking of doing the introductory class on the moves, but I wasn't sure if I should just jump in or wait until I have built up a little more strength and endurance.
Another option is a local yoga studio I like and respect.
So if you were me what would you do to ramp back up without overwhelming a body that is already pretty stress out?
