Exercise update #2

So today I woke up rather stiff. I was not necessarily sore until I had to grocery shopping and then had to run down 5 blocks of stairs and walk a good distance to get to the store.
I think trucking back with my backpack full of stuff was the worst with the weight and the blazing heat -_-

Still…I got home, treated myself to a salad for lunch with some bubble tea. Then after a brief rest period and time enough to clean the flat, I tried the Preparation Drill again today.

I must say that I am pretty proud of myself. Despite the soreness, I completed 5 Reps (5 counts of 4) on each of the exercises listed EXCEPT the high-jumper ( I opted out of this one since there are people living below me). So today I completed:

—bend & reach
—-rear lunge
—-squat bender
—-forward lunge
—-prone row
—bent leg body twist

BUT I barely managed a single push-up versus my 3 from yesterday which was a bit disappointing.
I think I will end the day with some stretching tonight and maybe some guided meditation.

It can only get better from here, right?
