The dreaded level two hit me in the face. And shoulder. This level is A LOT of ‘plank’ work – leaning in a pushup position and doing different exercises. This resulted in a damaged shoulder, and inability to actually do the workout. I did the next two with modified moves, so instead of plank-Jacks I did jumping jacks. Thus, giving my shoulder time to heal.
To add to the shoulder disaster, I was away this weekend and did not keep up with my workouts (other than on saturday) so I now have 4 to catch up with.
Furthermore, Being my usual clumsy self, I fell up the escalator on the tube today and bashed my knee on the metal step. Big owies. My knee looks like someone jabbed it with a giant fork…
So now I have to contend with a stiff, sore knee ontop of sore shoulders and an epic catch up!
Owie knee bruise!
I almost didn’t do my workout today. I’ve been working in a theatre all day and evening so have been on my feet for most of the time, and am quite tired. However, because I was naughty with my food today (really bad – chips and biscuits) I thought I can’t really get away with not dong it, and I also didn’t want to miss a day. Having said that, I didn’t work as hard as I would normally because of having sore feet blah blah.
I’m glad I did do it, at least I’ll sleep soundly tonight!
Day 2 went well. I got through the push ups better than I did yesterday, that may have been because yesterday I was carrying heavy stock so my arms were already tired. I have really bad upper body strength! But, this should start to get better with this workout!
I still ache, and felt like I was going to die during the workout. I’m apprehensive about what level 2 will be like, I’ve heard about some plank jumping jacks which I’m really dreading! My calves are one of the worst pains, but walking around and stretching them out will help!
I have a feeling day 3/4 will be one of the toughest, tomorrow because I have work all day so have to get up really early to do it, then go into work for 8 hours where I’ll no doubt have to carry heavy items. I’m hoping that once I’m past tomorrow it will get a little easier-until level up time!
