Session #?

I don't even know what number I'm on. I'll figure it out on Friday.

This past Monday I started to get withdrawal symptoms. There are four full days between my Friday session and Wednesday session and I found myself needing to work out my new and improved muscles. I did a few pushups. I thought about doing bicycles. I stared at the bench and dumbbells but didn't touch. I needed a Plan.

So Mr. W is putting together an exercise plan I can do at home.

Yesterday's session was all core work, all the time. Sometimes it used my arms and legs, but mostly it was meant to workout my back, upper and lower abs and obliques. And oh, it did. The funny exercise of the day was my first one.

I sat on the floor with my legs straight out in front of me, one ankle crossed over the other. I held a big dumbbell in my hands- I don't know the weight, I just take what he gives me, but it was heavy. Then I'd lift my legs about six inches off the floor, causing me to lean back with the dumbbell- this made my abs support me while I twisted my body with the weight from one side to another. My goodness! It was hard, but it made me laugh.

Another very hard one was lying on the floor on my front. I get up on my hands and toes as if doing a pushup then walk my hands out in front of me. When they're about as far out as I can go, I then bend my arms a bit and hold. First time, ten seconds. Then fifteen. Then twenty. And then thirty seconds. Oh my god. I was dripping bits of my DNA all over the place.

Did planks, side planks, knelt on a bench and lifted weights with my legs out behind me, held on to a bar while crossing one ankle over a knee and then did knee bends. Golly wolly!

I have a feeling I'm going to find it hard to laugh later- Starting to really feel my stomach muscles today.


In other news, I started going to the river this week to run. Monday I went to the gym, but Tuesday, Wednesday and today it was the river. I forgot how much different it feels to run on land than a treadmill. It's harder but I was also was going too fast- found it real hard to slow down. Anyway, I was so tired this morning I just walked for twenty minutes then went home. Yesterday I saw a kitten. Today a fox and a scottish fold cat. The cat and I were mostly watching the fox. When it stole away into the woods (stole! Fox! Hahaha! Get it?) it was just me and the cat. "Hi Kitty!" I said. The cat spit and ran away from me.
