Sure did sleep forever today. I got up at 6:30 and was still exhausted, even though I slept 8 hours. So I took my puppy out, fed her breakfast, and got back into bed for a couple minutes… that turned into 2 hours. Yikes!
I’m feeling that post-work out soreness today, which is fantastic. Haven’t felt that since mid-week 1. And what’s better, is I can feel it in my back and my shoulders – oh yeah!
My energy level definitely went up as the day progressed, and especially after I did the Warrior (on YouTube again, with my good friend Mike Burritt) – worked the soreness right out of my muscles. Still can’t figure out where I put that DVD.
Also, I did my pull-up progression workout today. Woohoo! Of course I don’t have a pull up assist band yet (should be here Monday!), so I’m doing modified door frame pull ups with a resistance band instead of those. The site also gives a great tip for doing self-assisted pull ups – toe only. It turns out my toe can hold waaaaay less weight than the ball of my foot, and it completely changed my pull up game. This is exactly what I was looking for! It’s going to be a whole new workout from here on out.
