|Me. Philadelphia Triathlon. Getting ready in transition.|
At 57 years old, one of my goals is to do an unassisted chin up. In keeping with that goal, I was hoping to get my ass to Iron Body Studios for the Women's Strength Class. Unfortunately my arm and shoulder were uncooperative.
Saturday morning I had a revelation after spending the morning unable to lift my right arm. I've had this problem before. So, I made an appointment with Kevin Carr, my former coach and current massage therapist for treatment. I forgot he had recommended maintenance for my problem and I suddenly realized how similar this recent problem is my prior one. Kevin Carr has consistently helped with my aches, pains and injuries. He's helped keep me active.

Sunday I woke up ready for a work out. I did a modified version of what I would have done with Artemis without problem. The good news is the chin ups.
Using my bands, I did 2 sets of 4 reps and 1 set of 3. I think I could have done another but felt some tightness so stopped. Very very happy with my progress.
