Comment: Originally wanted to do 4 miles on the elliptical rider, but didn’t think I should push it, so I did 2 instead and moved my Thursday weightlifting to Tuesday. There was stiffness at first in the right leg, but not really pain. If I would have felt pain I would have stopped immediately.

I increased the rep size instead of the weight from last week, I don’t want to add muscle, just train them for endurance; did not do the Stomach/Back Bends in fear of aggravating my thigh muscle.

Now, sitting back at my desk I can feel the knot in my leg, but it is not painful, just rather annoying.
