Workout Wednesday (6/10/20)

I’m still walking. Brian and I are getting up at five–as mentioned in yesterday’s discourse on woodland creatures and rain-capture barrels–and we do two miles or so as the start of our day. We’ve only done this for three days, but it’s what I’ve wanted and I love it.

We’re figuring out what walks in the evening look like–if it’s too hot for the dogs, can we do different routes, etc.

The other part of these workouts is bodyweight exercises, per the recommendations of the health app I’m using, and, you know, common sense. I must commend unto you the workouts from Darebee, as they’re made for people like me: complete novices who are also nerds.

I think I’m using an old workout, or at least, I can’t find it quickly because I don’t remember the name specifically–but it’s simple. There are six exercises: sit-ups, push-ups, jumping jacks, jump-in planks, hop heel clicks and squats. Each rep is worth one point. Get to 1,000 points.

I’ve broken 200, doing this for about a week. I think the challenge is to work out numerous times during the day, and I may or may not. But this is me trying, at least. My goal for the next ten days is 250–with as many jumping jacks and squats, and more push-ups and sit-ups. (I did thirty sit-ups today. That’s way better than my regular zero.)

And there you have it.
