30 Days Exercising Challenge – Days 5-7

The good news is that I’m still on the challenge, although I haven’t blogged about it in the last 3 days. The bad news is that I had to make some adjustments to it. Basically, I started to learn how my body reacts to various levels of effort, and made the necessary corrections. So, technically, it’s not bad news.

Friday

Woke up at 6:10.

  • 1 rep 15 pushups.
  • 1 rep 30 abs
  • 1 rep 15 pushups

No stepper whatsoever during the day, basically because I’ve spent the last day of the week socializing. Or trying to. The pause was good. My body thank me by providing generous waves of energy throughout the day.

Saturday

Woke up at 7 Am.

  • 6 Surya Namaskara
  • 1 rep 15 pushups
  • 1 rep 30 abs
  • 1 rep 15 pushups
  • 19 minutes on the stepper

Felt extremely well, my heart rate never crossed 125. During the yoga part, I felt some sort of energy relieve in the joints, probably my body was so tense because I was trying to impose a little bit too much on it, a little bit too fast. In the afternoon I did another isolated rep of 15 pushups.

Sunday

Woke up at 6:30 although I went to bed at 12:30. This waking up early pattern seems to be so far pretty common and I’m happy about it. Today I woke up at 5:30 without any alarm clock and without being tired at all.

  • 6 Surya Namaskara
  • 1 rep 15 pushups
  • 1 rep 30 abs
  • 1 rep 15 pushups
  • 20 minutes on the stepper (felt almost like a pleasure walk)
  • 1 rep 15 pushups
  • 1 rep 30 abs

All on all, seems I’m doing much better with a single workout per day. My other activities are also much better managed if I’m doing this workout in the morning. I still track my weight but I  won’t blog about it unless there are very important changes. It seems to me that I need a body fat checker more than a weight scale right now.

I also noticed that some of the people who joined this are keeping their pace, which is something that makes me, in a very strange way, happy :-). If you are doing your own workouts, please feel free to share them here, along with your comments and other advice.
