I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat.
OK, so there haven't been any tears. There's definitely been toil and sweat, and today there was blood.
I was doing the walking plank in circuit 1. My elbows already felt a bit raw from two days ago. As I was in the second set, I noticed a weird mark on the carpet. I thought someone had spilled something. Then there was another one...and another one. At that point I realized that they were coming from my elbow. Sure enough, it was bleeding.
So, I had a nice rest in the midst of my workout while I cleaned up the spots and put some "New Skin" on my elbow. I love that stuff, but it smells like nail polish.
I'm going to try doing the walking planks on a yoga mat next time, or just do some regular planks or push-ups.
