Exercise Log

For both Monday and Wednesday. I've switched to an MWF schedule, and I'm trying to do stuff in the mornings to see if it makes my day better or worse. (So far, it's neutral.)

Monday was lowering-myself push-ups (so resistance on the down part, no up part), sit-ups, and Albany Hill. Did 10 push-ups, 20 sit-ups, and ran most of the way there and back (say, 40 minutes of active running or hill-climbing). I did quite well, and felt appropriately sore afterward (except for my abs -- I need to work on my sit-up form better, or something).

Wednesday--this morning--wasn't nearly as good. My legs/ankles were complaining of muscle fatigue almost from the start, so I didn't run nearly as much as I did on Monday. I ended up walking half the route home due to soreness. Had similar problems with push-ups, and I still haven't figured out what I need to do for sit-ups.

In short, my body's repair cycle seems to last longer than 48 hours. This does not bode well for doing an every-other-day schedule.

I've been told I need to have a concentrated stretching session on days off. I'll give that a try, but I was already stretching quite a bit yesterday, so I don't know.
