After that, I moved on to knee-tucks and crunches, which I did the prescribed 10, and then the "Back Extension: Ground" for 8 reps (it just said do the max you can do.) Finally, it was "express cool-down" stretches which felt good but are the thing that is going to have me sore in the morning.
I woke up this morning by pulling a calf muscle hard before I had even done anything at all. It was like my body was already protesting.
So, when I did the stretches I took it easy on that one and didn't push it. No sense in injuring myself on day one of actually semi-following a plan.
Tomorrow's workout says 30 minutes of "Speedwalking." I have a feeling that is a little much for me, I can't remember the last time I speedwalked for that long, so it will probably be more like 10 minutes of speedwalking and another however long I can stand up of slower walking recovering from the speedwalking. If I don't collapse, maybe I'll remember to report on how that goes.
Oh, in case anyone was wondering what I ate, it could essentially be called the "fast food diet."
Hit the McDonald's drive-thru in the morning, got an egg mcmuffin and milk for breakfast (jack in the box hot sauce on the muffin - always good to keep sauce packets at work.) I also got one of those fruit & yogurt parfaits which was my morning snack a couple hours later.
Working for the Subway corporation has its privileges, namely - free Subway food. So lunch was a 6 inch double meat roast beef sub with swiss cheese, spinach, tomatoes, bell peppers, jalapenos, honey mustard, oil and pepper. 1% milk to drink and an oatmeal raisin cookie for dessert.
Afternoon snack was about an ounce and half of Planters lightly salted mixed nuts, and dinner was Chick-fil-A - one regular chicken sandwich and three chicken strips with one pack of bbq sauce. Lemonade to drink. (and I thieved one of my son's fries, but I stuck to one!
) By the way, that's real lemonade that Chick-fil-A makes in store, not one of those corn syrup-filled fake lemonades that comes from the fountain.
Tomorrow, I may actually stick closer to the recommended foods because they have a hamburger for the dinner meal.
Toodle-oo for now! Zzzzzzzzzzzz....
