I can’t believe that 3 weeks have gone by since the start of this challenge with only 2 weeks remaining. This week I feel like I’ve actually made progress on that front. Here’s how things went down this week.
Sunday: I realized early that morning that math must not be my strong suit. When I initially added up the number of reps I multiplied 20 x 3 and got 90. In total I was 210 exercises behind. Oops. That morning before rehearsal i made up those 210 with crunches. (That was the easiest exercise for me to think of on the spot.) Then later that afternoon I balanced out the crunches with some back extensions, about 100.
Monday: That day I did 100 bicycle crunches just to keep up.
Tuesday: Pump class knocked me out, with DOMS that is. We did over 200 ab exercises. I lost exact count but I think I did 225.
Thursday: Last night when I went to bed I was still so sore that the thought of waking up at 5am to go to pump was out of the question. I took today as a complete rest day except for squeezing in the remaining 75 exercises for the week.
While DOMS isn’t the most pleasant feeling in the world I love it. It means my muscles are getting stronger and that’s exactly what I want!
