From the sound of things, it looks like this will be the last Home Front mission and I’m sad about that. I really like these. I’m hoping they continue them in some form even though lockdown seems to be ending in some places.
A new thing for me in this session was the wall sit. I don’t do that or even think to do that in my regular routine. I didn’t have to hold the sit long so my knees seemed to tolerate it. I may have to start doing wall sits regularly. I’ll just have to make sure to use a timer to see if I make any progress.
As to why I’m not running as much? Honestly, I haven’t been up for it. Mentally, I’m trashed with all the terrible things happening in the world right now. I need a news detox or to just force myself on that treadmill no matter how I feel. I’m almost done with c210k so I might as well give that final push to finish it.
Today I let the mission play while I got on the bike so I’ll probably repeat it and do the exercises in the mission properly that time.
I also snuck in some arm exercises with my 5 pound weights so I can tone there as well. Since I’ve been clearing away a lot of junk in my room, I have more space to workout and it just feels better to have some clear areas. The only problem is going through things kicks up dust I didn’t know what were and I keep sneezing all over the place. Not a big deal since I have a minivan to get rid of it all.
I changed the pace on this to reflect my actual abilities but got on the bike instead of running. It was just not a good day; I was cranky and tired all day, I didn’t even want to bother eating because it felt like a hassle, and everything annoyed me. I couldn’t see myself being on the treadmill for an hour so I got on the bike instead. I’ll have to go to bed early and try again tomorrow morning.
Today was a quick Home Front workout. I probably should have done something more intense but I took it easy for Mother’s Day and because I wrecked my legs yesterday. I’m just glad I’m able to keep up my challenge but I may do this one over. My normal pace isn’t 12; its more like 14. I guess speed training will be my next mission after I finish c210k.
