So Day 4 (Cardio Recovery – aka Yoga stuff) and 5 (Pure Cardio – aka kick your butt) are done! “Snow” day today, despite the lack of snow, so I was able to get my workout in before noon. I have to admit I like being able to do that.
It has a large focus on core, which is really letting me know how weak my hip-flexors (amongst other things) are. I think this program is going to be JUST what I need to help with that! There are some exercises that I have to modify. Some because I am a weak pansy, and others because I can feel the work out in the spot where I had my Hernia Repair. I figure this can really help me build up the muscles, and maybe even get rid of some of the residual tightness/pain that crops up occasionaly.. But to do so, I want to be VERY careful that I am not re-injuring myself. I may decide to re-do it, or re do a week (or month) as I go forward, but I am going to see how I develop before making those decisions.
I do have to admit.. I’m kinda looking forward to my rest day.. My legs are sore and tired!
