Day 2 !
Just as well I went to bed early last night (22.30pm), because I found it very hard to wake up and get out of bed this morning. The whole pub seemed to be taking things slowly. Even the miners were quiet - and that lot sound like a herd of stampeding elephants at 5am every morning.
I found my windscreen was iced over yesterday, which made it very difficult to drive to the gym. Well last night I was a bit clever - I put an old bath towel over the windscreen. This morning I removed it in triumph; it's crystalline exterior sparkling beautifully in the stark moonlight. My windscreen was clear ! Well, not for long. It fogged up 50 metres down the road - no exaggeration - and then I made my mistake... Yes, I used the windscreen washers. Instantly my windscreen was totally frosted over. I should have known better.
Workout at the gym went well. I was feeling a little stiff & a tiny bit tender, but I was expecting this.
Warm up - walking 10 minutes
Gentle jog - 20 minutes
Cool down - walking 10 minutes
Calories expended - 562.
Feeling Before - a little tired & stiff (as expected).
Feeling During - Good
Feeling after - a little bit more tired & stiff (as expected)
The hardest bit will be the first few weeks. I must exercise carefully, not too hard at the start, but ensure I keep going and going and going. No excuses. If I get too sore, I'll hit the bike or pool instead.
