Week 2 - Day 2: Cardio X
OMG, what a workout!! I really pushed myself to my limits today and did ALL but one set of whacky jacks. I modified the dreya roll. Did everything BUT stand up. Still kept my heart pumping so I figured it was better than skipping it all together. At least I had the energy to attempt my own variation today. Up until now, I’ve kind of ignored poor Dreya due to absolute lack of any more energy. I continue to amaze myself with my progress.
Last night I was still so pumped from my morning workout, I took on 6.5 miles on my bike. I was amazed I was able to do the entire loop in top gear. It usually takes me weeks to work up to that AND I’ve NEVER, EVER gotten my bike out in March before. May, yes, but not March! 46F
I’m also pleased to report that I will now call Cardio X by it’s appropriate name. I no longer consider it Cardio OW! Hmmmm….do you suppose Yog..ugh will return to being yoga, tomorrow? We shall see.
OOOOO, OOOOOOO, OOOOOO, ….I actually did the push ups (sort of anyway) in the CardioX yoga sequence, …. And I wasn’t ready to strangle Tony when I was done!!! Not sure his neck will be safe after his plank/upward dog/push up/downward dog marathon tomorrow. No promises on that one.
Oooh, gotta share this. Last night DH, 14 yr old and 17 yr old DDs were inspired by me. The had a “let’s compare push ups” contest in the living room. 17 yo DD is AMAZING!! Strength is apparently another thing wasted on youth. She was sweet however. I was gushing over her form and strength and I showed her how much better hers were than mine and she had the sweetness of character to say, “Mom, that’s pretty good!” Remind me to raise her allowance. LOL! Even though I didn’t believe her apparent sincerity, it did make me feel pretty good. Apparently I not so bad that she can’t find something relatively close to passable in my form. I mean if I was floppy like a fish out of water, she’d sound pretty ridiculous telling me I was pretty good. Right? Hmmm, I wonder if she wants something......... car keys comes to mind...
