I woke up today at 7:00am, which is sleeping in by 30 minutes for me, and went through my normal daily routine. That is, all except for the going to work part. I love holiday breaks. I also love my body being on a schedule b/c I feel that it is honest with me when I have a schedule to follow. I really enjoyed getting up and not having to go do anything specific. I got a bowl of Raisin Bran (every morning) and did a little reading while eating. I was able to check my Google reader and drink a cup of coffee all in the comfortable environment of my living room. Fantastic.
My wife woke up and we decided to go to some garage sales. Let me tell you, I am a bargain man. I don't like spending full price on anything and will try to lower any price if you'd let me. When you don't have a lot - you don't want to spend a lot. Anyhow, the prices at the sales today were really good. We also stopped by the local thrift store which is my favorite thrift store b/c they are super cheap...except for exercise equipment or any sporting goods. They had an exercise bike/machine (definitely older) but they wanted $40 for it. That may seem reasonable for some, but in Mid-MO -- that is not that good. I also bought a jump-rope at Walmart today.
My Ankle has been feeling really good lately - I still can not fully extend it but it is healing really well. My opinion of course.
I bought a new brace today for it so that I could have some more mobility and it felt great to not be constricted to the toe to knee brace. I used it for my workout which consisted of the following:
- Shoot 100+ plus shots (basketball)
- Vertical Chest press (3 sets of 10 w/10lb weight increments each set)
- Lat Pull Downs front (2 sets of 8)
- Push-ups (40 so far) [all one legged]
- Bicycle machine (10 minutes - 1.23 miles)
- walk laps around the track (3.17 miles so far walking today)
What is your favorite type of workout and exercise to perform?
