I was about to head off to bed, when I realized I hadn’t posted anything today. So, a check-in!
I’ve exercised every morning (plus two afternoons) and posted every day (at least briefly).
This morning’s workout was tough. I was still sore and tired, both mentally and physically, from yesterday’s 5K. I woke up in the middle of the night to a throbbing bicep and couldn’t figure out why. Then I remembered. Oh yeah, I walked a 50-pound dog for 3.2 miles. Talk about functional fitness! Then today was the day that I upped my weights for strength training, which I had really been looking forward to and was actually fine. It was the yoga that got me. I do Power Yoga with Rodney Yee on weekends. I had planned on doing the whole practice today (1 hour and 20 minutes), but my body (and my DVD player) gave out on me. I started getting worried about the more challenging balancing postures. My muscles were quivering and I really though I might fall and get hurt. Then the DVD player kept stopping for no apparent reason. After three times, I decided it was a sign. So I made coffee and decided to get in a quick dog-walk this afternoon to make up the difference.
There’s a storm coming in and the power is flickering, so signing off.
