Workout 99

This workout left me a little hopeful.  Previously, the near absolute limit of my endurance was at the heel-jacks.  Today I felt myself edge past that marker-drawn line just a little bit.  If I had controlled my breathing better, I probably could have moved on to the first set of lunges.  I also could have done a better job staying long in the torso.  I hope this wasn’t just a fluke.  We’ll see on Saturday.  FitBit Calories Burned:  184

Glad I didn’t fall so far as last time.  Last Tuesday, I ended up staying up until 1:00 in the morning for work.  That blew Wednesday’s workout and I was waking up fatigued all the way until Monday morning.  I managed to get a workout today and it wasn’t too bad.  Not using the mat for the high impact section resulted in much better footing.

On the downside, I’m a bit stiff.  I was also scheduled to start the first set of lunges this week, but there’s no way that’s going to happen.  FitBit Calories Burned:  134

Today was a good workout despite a few missteps.  I decided to try moving the mat up a little and using it only for the warm-up and cool down. I was right. The superior texture of the replacement mat is causing some drag when I pick up my feet.  My footing for the high impact segment of the workout was much better.  I’ll need to move the mat up maybe a couple of more inches to avoid snagging the ceiling fan chain for the high impact portion.  I’m cautiously optimistic I’ll be able to advance next Monday.  Fitbit Calories Burned: 155

Workout 96

Went into this was with some apprehension.  The heel jacks were my stopping point the last time I made a big effort.  I made it through, but I’m not sure I’ll be able to progress beyond them after next week.  FitBit Calories Burned: 94
